  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    There is a question in another part of the forum asking about survival books. Since the question is posted in the wilderness survival section of the forum, I guess the question was about wilderness survival books. Rather than addressing just wilderness survival books, let’s talk about survival...

    Hello, My name is Geoff Pierce. I'm glad to have found this site for two reasons: First, I live in a hurricane zone - my family just went through Irma (we got lucky). Secondly, I'm an author who writes post-apocalyptic survival stories (I see that someone posted a review of my book on this site...

  5. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    One of the common questions I see repeated over and over on the forum - What are the best books for a survivalist library? Since the topic of books is brought up so much, I would like to post an article books. Some books should be a given, such as religious books and first aid books. Who...

    I pretty much quit going to the doctor back in the 90's. I've always been fairly healthy, but when I hit 40, I noticed I was bouncing back a little slower than I had been only ten years ago. Last weekend my buddy's wife turned 40 and it took me until Tuesday to fully recover from that bash...

    Survival books to keep on your bookshelf in case of the apocalypse When the apocalypse strikes, you probably won't have access to the Internet. That means no Google, no Wikipedia, and, if you haven't prepared, no cheat sheet to help you through the tough times. Here are a few books you might...

    Hi, I'm newto the board and have been lurking for a while just researching. I am interested in stocking up on manuals and other books to keep in my BOL to have on hand as references. I am looking for medical and dental guides, food preservation, wild plant ID, weapons, water, etc. I know that...

    I thought this post would better suit the disaster preparedness section better than the book section. I have been looking for books for a library when the SHTF, so far I have the complete foxfire series (i think, 6 books), the SAS survival handbook, and a book called the complete outdoors...

    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...
  13. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Hello guys and gals, I have noticed a lot of people posting about books to buy online, and I thought to myself....why just not make one? I will give you a run down of what I have made for myself. So I have two primary areas of operation (AOR) that are my main concern, a farm in NC and Va...
  14. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Having recently read One Second After by William R. Forstchen, I found myself wondering what I would do, living in Florida, if I were in the same situation. My first thought was that the effects of an EMP would be limited by some degree over the United States and that Countries like Canada, The...

    Did you buy a subscription to the Survivalist magazine? ......... when was the last time you had a new issue delivered?
  16. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    not for entertainment but for knowledge in prepping and/or PSHTF, living as much off the grid as you can? I just finished reading "When All Hell Breaks Loose" and I'm currently reading "The Encyclopedia of Country Living". Thanks for any and all suggestions. Suzanne

    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.
  18. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    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...
  19. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I have a nice notebook I'm thinking about starting a few practical survival articles on topics I know I'd need refreshing in when the SHTF. I'll be honest, I use this website any time I have a chance and have a question about anything related to the outdoors, survival, preparing, etc. But when...
  20. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    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...
