Default What is in your survival library?

I just received my SAS Survival Handbook 3rd Edition. Looking forward to reading through it.

I started thinking about my library as soon as I realized I had become a prepper. As an avid reader, i was already reading all the Apocalyptic/TEOTWAWKI fiction and then started looking for what I needed on hand after the SHTF that I could also use in preparation. So here is some of what I have:

SAS Survival Handbook
FoxFire Series - love it, great read and very informative.
The Foxfire Book of Appalachian Cookery
Gray's Anatomy: Classic Illustrated Edition
The PDR Pocket Guide to Prescription Drugs
The Pill Book (15th Edition): New and Revised

These are either on order or in my shopping cart for the near future.
Southeast Foraging: 120 Wild and Flavorful Edibles from Angelica to Wild Plums
The Backpacker's Field Manual, Revised and Updated
The Encyclopedia of Country Living, 40th Anniversary Edition
Wilderness Living
All New Square Foot Gardening II
Where There Is No Doctor: A Village Health Care Handbook, Revised Edition
Wilderness Survival
Where There Is No Dentist
A Field Guide to Edible Wild Plants: Eastern and central North America
Bushcraft 101: A Field Guide to the Art of Wilderness Survival
The Bushcraft Field Guide to Trapping, Gathering, and Cooking in the Wild
Advanced Bushcraft: An Expert Field Guide to the Art of Wilderness Survival
Bushcraft First Aid: A Field Guide to Wilderness Emergency Care

In addition, I bought an Amazon Fire tablet (I prefer an iPad for use but these are cheap and can use a MicroSD for storage) with 4 ea 64GB MicroSD cards and a 24W Solar Charger. I have downloaded hundreds of Military Equipment Manuals, Army Field Manuals, and a sh1t load of books from this list....https://www.survivalistboards.com/sho...hlight=library.

So what's in your Library (sounds like a Capitol One commercial).

Nice start. The more info the better off you will be.
Back to Basics on Amazon for $20 is a great how to book from 100 yrs ago. I've bought 10 for friends and family. Cover 90% of what you need to know. Great today tips too like plant a garden in tiers away from the sun or use corn for bean sprout supports. Plus building planting cooking canning & on & on

Great free info https://www.ldsavow.com/PrepManualGeneral.html

I'm a Lutheran but LDS has the best preparing free info. Its part of their mandate for 100s of years, so they have the most on hands real world info out there. They say keep 1 years of food not the BS 3 day FEMA says. Even Germany says 2 weeks.
They have a great phase 1,2,3 list of preps based on income or time to acquire.

I am collecting the entire Foxfire series, as well as many of the military survival manuals. Reading how people made do in Appalachia without modern technology will help me do many of the necessary tasks to survive,

Just starting my Library.

SAS full size and pocket edition
Several various free books on kindle.

My husband is a journeyman Carpenter and has tons of skills. He will be very useful in a SHTF world.
But I am most interested in folk medicine, as I used to be a midwife assistant and student. Been using herbal tinctures, supplements, natural clays etc for healing my friends and family for years.
So I am looking for great herbal and folk healing books. Please share info on any great natural medicine books!

Lots of good ideas....
Just a couple of comments.

Beware of being a "Book collector"
"I bought the book, so I'll read it later, or when if I need to...."
This applies to paper, Kindle, and bookmarking sites.

SHTF...Google and You Tube may not help you , don't depend on it.

Books I am not sure of?...eBooks for a device....good way to review to see if I want to spend the money for a hard copy.


Books I use often, like paper copies....Does not need batteries, can book mark it with post-its, make notes and store additional material.

Besides just reading ...try and gather gear and supplies for as many of the recipes, techniques, methods as you can....

Magazine called Backwoods Home and comic books. One to show me how to can things and one to keep my sense of humor. Living in rural country I already know how to do a lot so I like to keep the reading light.

These are the books I read in Junior High School, Senior High School, and as a young adult that shaped me into who I am.

Fiction:

Have Space Suit, Will Travel by Robert A. Heinlein (An inspiration to me when I was young)
Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein (Socio/political commentary in novel form.)
And the rest of the works of Robert A Heinlein (for the same reasons as above.)
Bulldozer by Stephen W. Meader (Another inspirational story when I was in my teens.)
A Hero For Henry by Herbert R. Purdum (A great old west comedy with valuable lessons.)
An Elephant For Aristotle by L. Sprague de Camp (Another Socio/political commentary in novel form.)
The works of Louis L'Amour The westerns and Night Over The Solomons & West From Singapore
The works of Zane Gray
The works of Edgar Rice Burroughs especially Tarzan At The Earth’s Core
The works of Earle Stanley Gardner
The works of Andre Norton especially Sea Siege
The works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
The works of Sir Henry Rider Haggard
The works of Sandra Brown (Believe it or not, I learned a lot from romance novels.)
The works of Nora Roberts (Another fine romance novelist that gave me a lot to think about.)


Non-fiction:

Power! by Michael Korda (How to get it and how to use it for good or evil)

Breaking the Rules by Kurt Wright (A book and seminar that gave me great insights into people and how they treat each other and why)

Dress for Success by John T Molloy (More than just clothing. How people actually see each other and act accordingly. Urban camouflage that also teaches the hows and whys of field camouflage)

The Miss Manners Guides by Judith Martin (More than just manners. How people interact in many different situations.)


Just a few suggestions from my avid reading past.

Wow Jerry that's impressive. I thought I was doing good with a 14' bookshelf of knowledge. I add several 3-5 page how to articles a week and 1 book a month. Thanks for a great place to look for my next book(s).

Jerry, I see you have a lot of radiation related books. So logically that's a major concern or your very thorough. Probably both. Is that your no. 1 concern or what is? Being very well read, I'm curious.

My major concern is no electricity by an EMP, hackers, transformer sabotage, etc. It would be a mammoth culling event. Most everything else is livable. China, Russia & other bigs will not Nuke us and i wouldn't want to survive a large event. Radical M. Dirty bombs or 1 offs will be local and will fade in time as it did in Nega. & Hiroshima Japan.

History is a great teacher and she repeats herself. In time, there will be another great culling. Plan for the worst rainy day to live to see the sunshine tomorrow.

Thank you.

Nuclear protection is one of my primary interests for several reasons. One, it was one of my first, with the Cuban Missile Crisis when I was 9 and growing up during the cold war.

Another, primary one, is that protection from blast, radiation, EMP, and the other effects require some very specific and specialized information and preparation.

Plus, the preps for nukes often directly apply to other types of disasters that may/will have to be dealt with. And sometimes with minor modifications or additions nuke preps apply to even more disasters.

One of my greatest concerns is a partial infrastructure failure that becomes a total infrastructure failure, caused by whatever event. This includes EMP, HEMP, hacking, sabotage, miss management, or nature disaster, including various levels or degrees of nuclear attack.

Since nuclear attack preps have always included preps for total grid down, anyway, they have always been a primary part of my preps.

As to surviving in a post major nuclear exchange, unless I am at ground zero of a device, or close enough to be seriously injured, I believe that there will be able to survive quite well, and if not for the limitations of my medications, would be able to not just survive long term, but do it well, and productively, helping civilization recover in an even better form than it is now.

Even in a widespread, global nuclear event, large areas, even huge ones in places, will be only mildly affected directly. Those areas with food production capability will do well.

Just my opinion.

Between Back to Basics and A Failure of Civility, The Gardeners Bible and The Bell Blue Book, I'm four square. I have several books a combat engineer buddy of mine suggested. I have the country wisdom book and my smarter and prettier better half has a library of herb craft and apothecary books from many times and places, including the Foxfire series. I have several smithing books suggested by Anno Lynke, an excellent smith.

Kindles pretty much allow you to carry an entire library with minimal power requirements. The medium is as important as the media.

For sure. My Kindle Fire, Solar Charger and a few 64GB MicroSD cards and I have a nice portable library. Though I do battle with the issue that I love the feel of a good book in my hands, so Have a mix, typically buy the keeps and download the more article or manual types.

Anther type of book that I don't actually think of as Prepper but in an re-evaluating, are How To books, like Blacksmithing, Bladesmithing, Gardening, Beekeeping, Chicken and Goat husbandry, Herbs, etc. That adds another 30 or so to my library. I will pull the titles later and post.

I am getting into how to use Essential Oils as Medicine.

When Modern Medicine Fails. Using Essential Oils to Save Your Life. is an awesome book to have in your kit. I carry a dram kit of the most important oils in my bob!
