...no electrical power, no refrigerators, no Internet, no computers, no TV, no hyperactive law enforcement, and no Safeway or Walmart.
In this short article, I will unearth a long-forgotten secret that helped our ancestors survive famines, wars, economic crises, diseases, droughts, and anything else life threw at them... a secret that will help you do the same for your loved ones when America crumbles into the ground.
I'm also going to share with you three pioneer lessons that will ensure your children will be well fed when others are rummaging through garbage bins. In fact, these three old teachings will improve your life immediately once you hear them.
My name is Claude Davis.
You may know me from my website, AskaPrepper.com, or you may have seen my warnings in the media. But few of you know me personally. My story is emotionally heavy, with struggles and disappointments but also with faith in God and a strong will to survive that finally led to my being here...
So pay close attention because this video will change your life for the good!
My grandfather came to America from Ukraine just before World War 2 and started a small farm in Texas. But before that, when he was only 12 and still in Ukraine, he survived a horrific famine. Out of the one hundred families that lived on his street, only 20 people lived to tell the tale.
What you are about to hear is a real recollection-as it was written in a personal journal just after the crisis by one of his neighbors:
"Where did all bread disappear, I do not really know, maybe they have taken it all abroad. The authorities have confiscated it, removed it from the villages, loaded grain into the railway coaches, and took it away someplace. They have searched the houses, taken away everything to the smallest thing. All the vegetable gardens, all the cellars were raked out, and everything was taken away.
It was so dreadful that every day became engraved in my memory. People were lying everywhere as dead flies. The stench was awful. Many of our neighbors and acquaintances from our street died.
...we tried to survive the best we could. We collected grass, goose-foot, burdocks, rotten potatoes, and made pancakes, soups from putrid beans or nettles. Collected gley from the trees and ate it, ate sparrows, pigeons, cats...and dogs. When there was still cattle, it was eaten first, then the domestic animals. Some were eating their own children. I would have never been able to eat my child. One of our neighbours came home when her husband, suffering from severe starvation ate their own baby-daughter. This woman went crazy."
Another neighbor wrote a petition to the authorities. Here is just a paragraph:
"Please return the grain that you have confiscated from me. If you don't return it, I'll die. I'm 78 years old, and I'm incapable of searching for food by myself."
Of course, nobody cared. In a crisis, it is everyone for himself! Although...in many cases, families did still remain families. Just after the winter, when there was absolutely nothing to eat, my grandfather, together with his mother, went to the nearest town where the government had established a soup kitchen.
Unfortunately, the 25-mile long journey was too much for his mother. After just five miles, she couldn't walk anymore.
My grandfather noted in his journal:
"Mother said, 'Save yourself; run to town.' I turned back twice; I could not bear to leave my mother, but she begged and cried, and I finally went for good."
I don't know about you...but I'm a father myself, and when I read these things, I burst into tears.
Please allow me to take a wild guess without getting mad at me... Your life's not perfect - but at least you have a computer or a mobile device to read this article on. Your fridge is probably half full - and while you have your problems, starvation is not one of them. And even though your job or retirement could be more enjoyable... you probably have enough money to at least get by.
And that's great!
But make no mistake taking this for granted!
History has shown us many times that it can all fly away in a split of a second.
The biggest misstep that you can take now is to think that this can never happen in America or to you!
All that my grandfather and our ancestors - who came here and formed America -lived through would be in vain without lesson number 2:
Call me old fashioned; I don't care...but I completely believe in America and what our ancestors stood for.
They all had a part in turning this land into one of the most powerful countries in the world.
Many died and suffered before a creative mind found an ingenious solution to maybe a century old problem. Believe it or not, our ancestors skills are all covered in American blood. This is why these must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same for our children and our children's children.
But now, my friends, we are sitting on the edge of oblivion.
Our fathers and our grandfathers were probably the last generation to practice basic things like building a root cellar or making pemmican.
Our ancestors laid the bricks and built the world's strongest foundation...that we are about to -irreversibly forget!
And we're going to pay the ultimate price for this.
Because if you have a big, strong house with a weak foundation, it doesn't matter if it looks nice on the outside-the next flood will sweep it away!
And that is exactly what will happen to most Americans in the coming crisis!
Here we are, human beings in the 21st century, several lifetimes and a world away from our grandparents and their ways. Have we become better at living? I think not. I watch as we become ever more expectant that the world owes us a living. Consumerism has reached epic proportions and people feel aggrieved if they don't own the latest gadget.
The truth is we have never been more disconnected from life, from the world, from the soil, from the trees, and from our own souls.
We are straying away from our roots on a dangerous road from which there will be no turning back. And the good and bad news is that we are the last generation that can truly do something about it.
We no longer know how to live without refrigerators, without cars, without phones or without supermarkets.
What will you do tomorrow if you simply are unable to buy things?
I sometimes even think we're kidding ourselves with our Bug Out Bags and with our three-day food rations. Wouldn't we be better off looking at what the pioneers took with them when they traveled from Independence, Missouri all the way to Oregon City?
Game meat was unreliable even then, so don't think that they made this five-month journey counting only on that. If your life depended on this, what Bug Out Bag would you take with you? I know I would stick with whatever the pioneer had with him. He had to travel weeks on end without much help while taking cover from some native tribes at the same time.
And this is just a small, tiny example!
I don't want to see our forefathers' knowledge disappear into the darkness of time...and if you care for your family...and what America stands for...then neither should you!
This is the third and most important lesson of all:
I believe in God and in the power of free will! I believe that you are the only one in charge of your destiny and that you are constantly making decisions that shape the rest of your life.
It's true that we all had different starts, depending on our families and upbringing, but most of us here in the United States had at least decent beginnings. We had water and food, we could go shopping from time to time, and we had a decent medical system compared with other countries.
We should be more thankful for that! And we should ensure that we have something put aside for darker times.
If anything goes wrong with this country don't blame the government or the president. They don't truly care about you or your family. You'll be the only one in charge of your fate!
I don't know if you've noticed, but nothing just falls from the sky. GOD HELPS YOU, but He does not lay it on your table. You have to work hard and do things yourself!
As long as you are aware of this, your destiny rests solely on you and your willpower.
You can truly change things! And you can do a lot more than you think you can!
With this idea in mind five years ago, I wanted to do something that hadn't been done before!
Something that not only would help me survive a crisis without investing a fortune in stockpiles, but something that I could do around my house on a daily basis using only methods that were tested and proven by our forefathers for centuries.
I went to my grandfather to find out how he survived and to learn the little secrets that helped him stay alive in spite of almost everyone else dying.
He was now almost 90, but the old man was still in good shape. For three weeks on end I absorbed his lessons like a dry sponge. On top of that, we built a lot of things together, including a root cellar and a storm shelter, just like the folks did when he was young. We made lard and ham, and we smoked four turkeys and preserved them for winter in four different, traditional ways-and a lot, lot more.
When I was a child, I was raised by my grandparents, but I hadn't spent such a quality time with him until then. In fact, there were months when we barely even spoke-not because we couldn't stand each other but because I was always too busy working or taking care of my kids... a lame excuse and a thing that I deeply regretted later on in life.
My grandfather passed on a couple of years ago and with him a magnificent amount of survival knowledge. I don't know if you're in a similar situation, but think about your grandfather and how many things he did or knew...things that will vanish forever into the dark abyss of ignorance.
And because I deeply believed in lesson no. three, that I was the only one who could change something, my goal for the last couple of years changed from not just "learning" but "saving" our forefathers' ways.
This is one of the most important things that I've done in my life. I'm proud of it, but it took me five difficult years!
First, there is no person that knows all our forefathers' forgotten secrets. Let's just say that there are still a handful of people that still practice a lost skill transmitted from generation to generation even today...but not all the skills of course. I had to get in touch with a lot of people.
Second, where do you find these guys? They are no mainstream survival experts; they don't have a website or a TV show. Some of them even live in remote areas without Internet or TV cable, earning a living like the pioneers did!
Third, I wanted to do something unprecedented. You know, articles like "11 Skills Your Great-Grandparents Had That You Don't", and they start listing the skills: hunting, fishing, foraging, butchering, and so on.
Pffff...this kind of information will never help anyone. I needed something solid, exact, and to the point! Not just skills! I wanted to know things that they actually built, ate, and stored and EXACTLY how they did it.
And fourth, I'm not sitting on a gold mine! As much as I enjoyed traveling and learning these skills, I still needed to go to work.
But what I didn't realize when I started my journey is that you can't save these skills only by writing them down. If all these writings will be forgotten in a dusty drawer right next to my bed, it won't help anyone. This knowledge will die together with me, and all my efforts to save our forefathers' ways would have been in vain.
This is because all my life I blindly believed in lesson 3...that "it is always up to me."
But I was wrong!
In this case, it's only halfway there:
Today is your chance to be part of saving our ancestors' lost ways. I wanted to make this information available to every family out there without having to spend years of their lives or thousands of dollars.
So I came up with this great idea to edit all my manuscripts and to turn all this lost knowledge into one of the greatest books of this century:
Saving Our Forefathers' Skills
As you can see, I designed and edited the book in an old-fashion way, but most of it is not written by me personally because I didn't want people to read a second account. I'm sure a lot of information would have been lost in this process. You know those little secrets that make a thing really work? Those little things will make a big difference. So I paid these experts for their time, and I got what I wanted.
These people are not professional writers but instead are uniquely special. They're neither the strong, badass-type you see in Rambo movies nor the ultra-rich preppers from reality shows. They're simple people who know a lost skill very well. They are smart, shrewd, and wise enough to survive for months or even years in the world's most remote places.
For example, I'm sure you've already seen this plant...
This is wild lettuce also known as opium lettuce... for a good reason. It has side effects similar to Morphine but milder, being by far the strongest natural painkiller that grows in your backyard.
This milky substance inside this plant doesn't contain any opiates, but it's acting directly on the central nervous system (CNS) to lessen the feeling of pain. Many people have used it as a replacement for addictive prescription pain medicine.
Wild Lettuce is un-scheduled by the FDA, meaning it is legal to forage, to grow, and own without prescription or license... just like the Native Americans used it to heal their pain.
In The Lost Ways you'll find lots of these common invaluable weeds with pictures, how to identify them, how to prepare them and how to use them... all with different medical effects... because when the medical system collapses this will be your only option to heal yourself.
Really, this is all just a peek.
And believe it or not, this is not all...
If you get The Lost Ways right now, you'll also receive three exclusive reports that will be off the table soon.
There is an old saying that our great-grandparents used to know:
"Once in life you need a doctor, a lawyer, a policeman, and a preacher, but every day, three times a day, you need a FARMER."
So the first report you'll get is:
This special report contains the most nutritious and toughest plants that you should start growing so you'll never run out of food. These plants are reliable in the worst possible conditions, including drought, flooding, or light deprivation...and you'll also find instructions on how to plant, grow, harvest, and STORE them.
I'm also pretty sure that you are familiar with this 150-year-old saying that
"It is not the strongest species that survived, nor the most intelligent, but the ones most responsive to change."
So the second bonus you'll get is
...which is a day-by-day guide that shows you what to do after an EMP every day, for 30 days, using The Lost Ways. Think about it this way: If an EMP had struck in the late 1800s, nobody would've noticed it. Our great grandparents didn't even know what an EMP was, nor did they know what modern technology was, but they surely lived, survived, and prospered without it.
Now things are a little bit different. And because this event can happen all of a sudden, with no warning whatsoever, it might be difficult even for the smartest minds to know what to do from the moment the running water stops and your food spoils to the moment when looters come knocking at your door. So in this report, you'll learn the 10 things that you should do on day one, what to make on day 2, what you definitely need to turn to on day 3, and so on 'till day 30, when you'll be absolutely 100% self-sufficient, protected, and able to help others if you want to. Unless you're living in a bunker full of stockpiles, doing these things in the wrong order may literally mean death.
I'll show you what to do every day so you'll never run out of water, food, or heat and then what to do or build to improve things day by day.
Another old saying people used to say is:
"For every minute you spent organizing, an hour is earned."
So the third report that you'll get is:
...that can hold at least 700 cans of different sizes. You will never have to look at 50 cans for expiration dates, and you'll never need to throw away cans again because they've spoiled. A can rotator is not only a time saver but also a money saver. As you can see in this video , the mechanism is very simple. Whenever you buy new cans, you insert them in the upper shelf. The cans will automatically roll down, and they will be the last in the row. When you pick them up, you do so from the shelf below, so you will always pick the can that you bought first and therefore with the closest expiration date.
Cool and efficient! The one that you've just seen in the video I built with only $95. Pretty cheap if you think that a similar rotator costs $420 on Amazon and holds only 450 cans. And theirs aren't even that cool!
Once you have the plans and the step by step guide with pictures, all it takes is just one day of work, even less.
So if you choose to save the lost ways now, you'll also get these three exclusive bonuses that are worth $29 each...FOR FREE and unlimited access to the members' area, where you can ask me anything at any time. I will be there to answer your questions and to help you if you need any clarification on anything.
By knowing the ways of our forefathers, believe it or not, you're covered for anything. You'll never have to spend money on any prepping material again. Forget about unreliable and expensive modern survival equipment. Why even bother reinventing the wheel when these things have been working right for centuries?
The Lost Ways prepares you to deal with worst-case scenarios with the minimum amount of resources just like our forefathers lived their lives, totally independent from electricity, cars, or modern technology whatsoever, which means you'll also be bulletproof against the ever-increasing threat of an Electro Magnetic Pulse, a Powerful Economic Breakdown, Famines, and Natural Disasters. You'll have the power to protect and save your family...even to rebuild your community during the worst of times.
And the best part is that you don't need to wait for a disaster to happen. The self-reliance our grand grandparents had will help you save hundreds of dollars every month starting from day ONE.
At the same time, you get to take part in doing something GREAT-saving our forefathers' lost skills!
Now, I consider that I've done my part: the hardest and costliest part if I may say so. All you need to do is to make sure you hand this knowledge over when it's time to and take full advantage of it until then.
I've shown it to some expert preppers and readers of mine, and some of them even said they would easily pay $1000 just to learn these skills alone.
I even thought of creating a weekend workshop and charging at least $500 for a seat. There are people who do that. But I realized that this would be wrong because only a handful of people will actually learn the lost ways, while my main focus is not to get rich but to SAVE these skills by spreading this knowledge to other people just like me.
Remember when a man's word was his bond? When you made an agreement and you just shook on it? You didn't need anything more.
Frankly, I would like to do things the old fashioned way: on a HANDSHAKE. So TODAY you can shake my hand and seal the deal for a price that anyone can afford.

In fact, even NOW, YES, RIGHT NOW, if you get The Lost Ways, go to page 39, and start making just one of the super nutritious foods that can last a few years without refrigeration. And I'm not talking about honey or vinegar. I'm talking about real food!

Go to page 301, and start building your own old-style backyard smokehouse to preserve your own meat, sausages, and fish using your own spices.
When the dollar becomes useless and all hell breaks loose, you won't care because you won't need any money at all! All you'll need to survive is The Lost Ways! Nothing more! If our ancestors survived the hardest times using only this knowledge, then so will you!
Everyone will turn to you for guidance. Everyone will try to barter with you. Everyone will want to use your tools and your knowledge! This is the amazing power our great-grandparents had...and it's all captured, jam-packed, and readily-available for you in The Lost Ways.

...So is it a deal? I hope so!
Don't let this knowledge disappear into the darkness of time, because in the next crisis-when death will stare you in the eye-this is the only TIME-TESTED life vest that you and your family can hang on to. You'll stay calm and protected when others will scavenge through the garbage for food.
My guess is that you haven't experienced a long-time hunger. But you are probably familiar with the feeling of skipping a couple of meals. Not a very pleasant experience.
We are not used to thinking about what to eat or how to procure food for our children. Again... don't take anything for granted just because we're living in good times now.
Our grandfathers and great-grandfathers were the last generation to practice the basic things that we call survival skills now. Why try to reinvent what they did-and did very well-for centuries?
There are only a few moments in life when you can really do something big. This is one of them. Our grandparents didn't pass these skills on to us in our bloodstream, and neither will you to your children or your nephews.
