East Carbon resident Crystal Abrahams has published a book, 2012 Survival Guide: Will You Be Ready? The book is 433 pages in paperback and more than 600 pages in the electronic Kindle version. Both print and e-book versions are available on Amazon.
The survival guide is a compendium of various cataclysmic events that have been predicted or prophesied to happen on or before the December solstice of 2012. It also contains lists of survival items the author advises people to have on hand, and steps to take to prepare for emergency.
Ms. Abrahams said she has done extensive research and has also gained "a unique perspective on survival in all its forms" from her experience as a legal assistant, work in the hospitality industry in many states and several countries, and truck driving.
