    What are some good books about rebuilding civilization? Something like A canticle for Leibowtiz, The Postman, or Earth Abides. The more "underground" the better, people seem to suggest the same books over and over.

    I posted this thread on the Wilderness Survival board a few months ago (probably didn't know about this section yet). Survival Guides I'm up to about a survival/wilderness related books now. Lots of good info on that thread there. Hope it finds it's way over here. :thumb:

    Perhaps it is an occupational hazzard, but I for one, truly believe that books will always have a part in anyone's survival arsenal. Yes, we all know about computers and the internet and how someone can find anything they wish. But, if something terrible would happen and you would have to leave...

    Maybe you want to explore how others have looked at survival, or just think about the social issues. Maybe you want an eye opener, the way One Second After was for me when I realized my closest friend has developed diabetes and I had never thought about the massive issues that now presents for...

    I recently got done reading "Lucifer's Hammer" and something came to my attention, one of the characters was putting books into plastic baggies and spraying them with insect killer along with dropping mothballs in. In the event of a MAJOR disaster (ie pieces of a comet hitting the earth...

    So I'm in the library-building phase. So, please give me your thoughts on the best books for a SHTF library. With the following assumptions: 1. Physical books only, made of paper. 2. No religious texts: the ones that matter to me I already have, and that's probably true for anyone else who...

    Hi Ladies, My kids and I love to read together... so aside from the physical "do it like this" kind of teaching, I wondered if there was any other reading material you guys might suggest (other than Little House or Hatchet, have those!) that we could read together that have that kind of living...

    Have you given thought to the value of a real nice stocked library in the event of eowawki. Not only to educate the young but to rebuild. Those with technical skill sets will be in demand but to educate next generation in these expertises with text books would be a God send.

    Ok, as you can tell by my question I'm new to this and I'm looking for a good all around book that can be thrown into the 'to-go" package, and for research material. Willing to buy more than one if they cover the most important items, or are written by survival gurus that must be included in...

    What are some great books on SHTF. I don't necessarily mean books on canning, martial arts, medical books, etc. I am referring to books that take on the subject of STHF as a whole. I saw one book on amazon called The Modern Survival Manual: Surviving the Economic Collapse. It seemed to have...

    I have been rereading some classic literature that was required reading in school. I've been at it for years and I find I am learning new things and have a whole new viewpoint. 4th grade the Chronicles of narnia book 7 as a child I couldn't enjoy the view of heaven because I couldn't get over...

    rather than hijacking the recovering large equipment tread I am starting a new one. So, what can one bring as a part of all the equipment that one owns and know would be of help in a permanent(no going back eotwawki) bug out? Unless your bug out vehicle is a M46 you would have to prioritize...

    What do you consider to be the ultimate survival book, if you had to choose just one?

    Good Morning! The site www.freebookcentre.net contains links to thousands of free online technical books. While the focus seems to be on computing science and mathematics there is a good selection of free medical books as well. I hope someone finds these books and the site a useful addition...

    The danger that we may loose the power grid at some point is a very real one. Along with that loss would be the loss of access to the internet, and for most people that means their source for survival information. I already have some key books that I think everyone ought to have, but I was...

    I'm looking to make a "Survival Library" and I'm looking for ideas on this. Is the best way to print it and then make a notebook out of it? How would you organize and sort all the different files? How do you know what kind of files you're going to need? I'm sitting here thinking about it and if...
