    I have a few books that I find useful, but would like to add to my library. Do we have a sticky or recommended list of reference books?
  2. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Hello all, A good portion of my preparedness revolves around understanding how things work. What do I need to build or create x, and where do I get the tools and resources to do that? How do I get from an empty field to a pizza? How do I refine petroleum? How would I recreate modern...

    A huge thank you to all of you who wanted to read my Prepper friendly apocalyptic novel "The Dying Time: Impact" in print as opposed to an ebook. Took me awhile to figure out how to get it out on CreateSpace but it was worth the effort. The print version is a full 6" x 9" so it looks like a...

  6. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Hey everyone, so in discussing on another thread about paper costs it got me to wonder, If you could have just one book (or a handful) in printed form what one would you choose? I am thinking of one that would encompass as much knowledge as possible, from medical to survival etc. all skills the...

    All of us know that during a SHTF scenario (especially long term) there can be little to no forms of entertainment. Entertainment will be a necessity in order to not go crazy. Going Stir crazy or any other means is not only a danger to yourself, but it would affect your loved ones. I am not...

    Hi all! I have recently been given the opportunity to be the focal point of a news segment that will be aired in another country (in the EU). The primary focus is on teaching kids guns safety. I applied because's its a topic I feel strongly about, and was chosen due to a children's book I've...

    I went on Amazon and bought 2 new books. Survival Theory The Ultimate Survival Manual (Outdoor Life): 333 Skills that Will Get You Out Alive Both look pretty good from preview. (Have to wait on the Outdoor Life one to arrive though because it's only in paper format.) Any other relatively new...

Amongst your many other concerns, you want to save some of the readily available wisdom (in the form of books) to be able to teach your children and future generations. By doing...

    Intro: This is a fiction book set in a rapidly balkanizing United States. It is the story of one man who refused to bend the knee any longer. It is not meant to portray a hero, but a man. One plagued with doubts and fears, one who makes mistakes, one who was never a tier one operator. He's just...

I have not read these, so can not comment on content yet. I just wanted to post...

    So I’m a voracious reader, but I didn’t come back to camping and woodcraft until just a couple years ago. I’ve read a lot of recent books on wilderness survival, woodcraft, and the like, but I’d be curious to see what I’ve missed in the literary tradition of outdoor/woodcraft literature. I’m...

    I've been thinking of a world Post-SHTF ... Been thinking a lot about the Preservation of Knowledge Sources. I have a number of sources of information for my BOB. But was thinking, what kind of information would you want to preserve for future generation (not just survival information)...
