Lynda King is a former newspaper editor who also enjoyed--and continues to enjoy--a career as a freelance writer and editor. She was a columnist for Hobby Farm Home magazine and a contributor to its sister publication, Urban Farm, for which she wrote the cover feature, on sustainability, in the inaugural issue.
As a Girl Scout, Lynda learned "Always be prepared!" ... and took that early lesson to heart. It ultimately led her to writing about "preppers," people who are part of a cultural phenomenon that has surfaced in the last several years. Her first book, Preppers: History and the Cultural Phenomenon, was published in August 2014.
The word ‘prepper’ seems to have burst onto the scene within the last 10 years, and has increasingly become associated with “fringe” extremists. They have been labeled by some as “domestic terrorists.” But is prepping a new phenomenon? For those who wonder what a prepper is, this book offers a look at what they used to be—and what they are today.
