Survival books

As some of you may or may not know Paladin Press is going out of business. Some of their books are marked down to 65% off.  So if you want to add to your prepping library, now is a great time to do it.

Those of you who know me and follow my YouTube channel know I live in a rural area and am developing a self-sustainable homestead. The books I picked out are ones that talk about the direction I am going in.

The trapping books are so I can trap on the farm and around the outside skirt of the farm. My property is bordered by hundreds of acres of timber company land. The people who hunt the land rarely get close to the property line. this allows me to trap small game on the edge of the property line without issues.

Books I ordered:

  • Arming for the apocalypse by James Ballou.
  • Creating a low budget homestead by Steven D. Gregersen.
  • Long term survival in the coming dark ages by James Ballou.
  • The survival retreat by Ragnar Benson.
  • Subsistence trapping by Ragnar Benson.
  • Into the primitive advanced trapping techniques by Dale Martin.
  • Dirt cheap survival retreat one mans solution by M.D. Creekmore.

As I write this I am 49 years old and have been hunting and shooting since I could hold a BB gun. Starting in the 1980s I started buying various gun magazines. On and off since the 1990s I had subscriptions to various gun magazines. Even though I have decades of gun magazines, I went ahead about bought the book “Arming for the apocalypse by James Ballou”. It was on sale, so why not.

I was rather sad to see Paladin Press go out of business. They played an important role in being able to find survivalist information in the 1990s.

After events such as Ruby Ridge and the Oklahoma City bombing, survivalist were given a bad name. When it came out Timothy McVeigh was part of a survivalist group, main stream media did not want to be associated with the type of survivalist books Paladin Press sold.

Now it seems survival related books can be found just about anywhere.

So if you are looking to add to your survival library, head over to Paladin Press and place an order.
