To Build a Fire Book Excerpt:

‘To Build a Fire’ is one of Jack London’s (‘White Fang, ‘The Call of the Wild’) most cherished short stories. Drawn from London’s personal experiences, we follow an unnamed narrator taking his first steps into the untamed wilds of the Yukon. With only a native dog as his companion, our protagonist must contest with the hostile climate of the Yukon, as he surges ahead on a journey against nature that will shake him to his very core. ‘To Build a Fire’ challenges readers to consider what survival means to them, and the lengths they would go to carry on in the most unforgiving territory in the world. Fans of London’s previous works will be enthralled with this story of man versus nature. Jack London (1876 – 1916) was an American journalist, social activist, and author of over 20 novels. From a working-class upbringing, London became one of the highest-paid authors of his time and a world-renowned celebrity. He is best remembered for his classic novels ‘The Call of the Wild’ (1903) and ‘White Fang’ (1906), and his short stories including ‘To Build a Fire’ (1902) and ‘An Odyssey of the North' (1900). Several of his works have found homes on the silver screen such as ‘The Call of the Wild’, which was recently adapted into a live-action film with ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Indiana Jones’ star Harrison Ford.

To build a fire Book Excerpt:

"To Build a Fire" is a short story by American author Jack London. There are two versions of this story, one published in 1902 and the other in 1908. The story written in 1908 has become an often anthologized classic, while the 1902 story is less well known. The 1908 version is about an unnamed protagonist who ventures out in the subzero boreal forest of the Yukon Territory. He is followed by a native dog and is en route to visit his friends—ignoring warnings from an older man about the dangers of hiking alone in extreme cold. The protagonist underestimates the harsh conditions and slowly begins to freeze to death. After building one fire and leaving it to venture on in his journey he later on attempts to build another but fails. He slips into unconsciousness and dies of hypothermia... Famous works of the author Jack London: "The Cruise of the Dazzler", "A Daughter of the Snows", "The Call of the Wild", "The Kempton-Wace Letters", "The Sea-Wolf", "The Game", "White Fang", "The Iron Heel", "Martin Eden", "Burning Daylight", "A Son of the Sun", "The Abysmal Brute", "The Valley of the Moon", "The Mutiny of the Elsinore", "The Star Rover", "The Little Lady of the Big House" and many more.

Anyone who supervises or manages people in any environment should find something here that will aid them in doing their job better, more efficiently, and with greater success. The original Benjamin Franklin started the Fire Service as a simple organization of volunteers with the goal of saving lives and property. What is written here is designed to build on that foundation and aid you in managing the complexities of the modern Fire Service. In 1733 Ben Franklin was asking that his city fight fires the way the bigger cities like Philadelphia do: "Soon after it [a fire] is seen and cry'd out, the Place is crowded by active Men of different Ages, Professions and Titles who, as of one Mind and Rank, apply themselves with all Vigilance and Resolution, according to their Abilities, to the hard Work of conquering the increasing fire." Under Franklin's goading, a group of thirty men came together to form the Union Fire Company on December 7, 1736.

The Call of the Wild White Fang To Build a Fire Book Excerpt:

The Call of the Wild—Selected by the Modern Library as one of the 100 best novels of all time 'To this day Jack London is the most widely read American writer in the world,' E. L. Doctorow wrote in The New York Times Book Review. Generally considered to be London's greatest achievement, The Call of the Wild brought him international acclaim when it was published in 1903. His story of the dog Buck, who learns to survive in the bleak Yukon wilderness, is viewed by many as his symbolic autobiography. 'No other popular writer of his time did any better writing than you will find in The Call of the Wild,' said H. L. Mencken. 'Here, indeed, are all the elements of sound fiction.' White Fang (1906), which London conceived as a 'complete antithesis and companion piece to The Call of the Wild,' is the tale of an abused wolf-dog tamed by exposure to civilization. Also included in this volume is 'To Build a Fire,' a marvelously desolate short story set in the Klondike, but containing all the elements of a classic Greek tragedy. 'The quintessential Jack London is in the on-rushing compulsive-ness of his northern stories,' noted James Dickey. 'Few men have more convincingly examined the connection between the creative powers of the individual writer and the unconscious drive to breed and to survive, found in the natural world. . . . London is in and committed to his creations to a degree very nearly unparalleled in the composition of fiction.'

When Technology Fails Book Excerpt:

There’s never been a better time to “be prepared.” Matthew Stein’s comprehensive primer on sustainable living skills—from food and water to shelter and energy to first-aid and crisis-management skills—prepares you to embark on the path toward sustainability. But unlike any other book, Stein not only shows you how to live “green” in seemingly stable times, but to live in the face of potential disasters, lasting days or years, coming in the form of social upheaval, economic meltdown, or environmental catastrophe. When Technology Fails covers the gamut. You’ll learn how to start a fire and keep warm if you’ve been left temporarily homeless, as well as the basics of installing a renewable energy system for your home or business. You’ll learn how to find and sterilize water in the face of utility failure, as well as practical information for dealing with water-quality issues even when the public tap water is still flowing. You’ll learn alternative techniques for healing equally suited to an era of profit-driven malpractice as to situations of social calamity. Each chapter (a survey of the risks to the status quo; supplies and preparation for short- and long-term emergencies; emergency measures for survival; water; food; shelter; clothing; first aid, low-tech medicine, and healing; energy, heat, and power; metalworking; utensils and storage; low-tech chemistry; and engineering, machines, and materials) offers the same approach, describing skills for self-reliance in good times and bad. Fully revised and expanded—the first edition was written pre-9/11 and pre-Katrina, when few Americans took the risk of social disruption seriously—When Technology Fails ends on a positive, proactive note with a new chapter on "Making the Shift to Sustainability," which offers practical suggestions for changing our world on personal, community and global levels.

Survival Training for the Neophyte Book Excerpt:

This book is especially designed for the unprepared, to teach them how to survive any emergency. I refer to these individuals as neophytes. I hope to teach them how to handle a crisis and survive, whether or not they decide to stay at home or take their chances in the wild. It is written for those individuals who do not have the time to really prepare and practice the skills necessary to survive but have a strong desire to stay alive. This type of individuals usually gets their information to solve any problem through the internet. If you are one of this type of individuals, all you need is this book. You will be taught about basic survival skills, how to find or make shelter, how to purify water, how to build a fire, how to prepare your food, and many other things. Along with this book you need to put together a bugout pack (BOP). The BOP will allow you to survive three to five days, and even longer. An inexperienced individual will certainly die without this book and a fully loaded BOP. Your survival chances increase exponentially with these two items. I give you here the tools to make your survival possible and the knowledge to thrive.

You'll learn how to gather and sterilize water, build a fire, treat injuries in an emergency, and use alternative medical sources when conventional ones are unavailable.

With this comprehensive guide in hand, you can be sure to respond quickly, correctly, and confidently when a crisis threatens.
