When the shit hits the fan, clean water is the very first thing you are going to need.
This book prepares you for a wilderness adventure or natural disaster alike, or even just a mundane boil water notice. Teaches you tons of cool lore and skills, like reading the landscape to locate likely water sources, collecting water from plants, filtering rainwater, and figuring out if the water you have found is safe to drink and purifying it if it is not, even if you do not have fancy equipment.
You will also learn the science of how our bodies use water, so you will be able to make better informed decisions.
Portland's most colorful, authentic, and empowering publishing house and distributor,Microcosm Publishingequips readers to make positive changes in their lives and in the world around them.
Microcosmemphasizes skill-building, showing hidden histories, and fostering creativity through challenging conventional publishing wisdom with books and zines about DIY skills, food, bicycling, gender, self-care, and social justice.
Microcosmhas lived in milk crates, in closets, in a mud room, in a windowless basement, in a church, and under a desk at a major credit card company. We've brought our brightly colored books to infoshops, zine fests, media summits, bicycle conferences, parks, street corners, house shows, dirty bars, allnight coffeeshops, art museums, and every corner of the mainstream where we can clear away a little space to set up shop.
We set out to save ourselves from not caring, but out there in the margins we've found communities worth always doing it better for. Now we have contracts instead of handshakes, a warehouse instead of a fanny pack full of zines. We have a staff, we have relationships in the industry that send our books to places we wouldn't have dreamed we could walk into ourselves. We're not as drunk or dirty as we used to be. But still, at heart, we've got this milk crate strapped to the back of a bike and we're riding wildly across town to hand you the book that might just be the one that saves your life!
