Collecting Survival Books for a Well Rounded Survivalist Library

Survival books

There is a question in 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 books in general and developing a well rounded survivalist library.

My favorite books are non-fiction history books. Also, I have a collection of modern survival / prepping books from various authors.

I usually pick a topic, such as the black death, or medieval history, buy several books from Amazon, read them, then pick another topic.

Last Three Books I Read

  • Black Rednecks and White Liberals by Thomas Sowell.
  • The Neanderthals Rediscovered by Dimitra Papgianni and Michael Morse.
  • Technology in the Ancient World by Henry Hodges.

Adding To The Prepping Library

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.

Best Books For a Survivalist Library

Books for a long term SHTF survival situation

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 in their right mind does not have a first aid book in their preps? Saying that you should have a first aid book in your preps, is like saying the sky is blue and the grass is green.

Asking if you have a military survival manual in your preps, is like asking if you took a shower and brushed your teeth this morning.

Lets move past the books that should be a given.

My personal opinion, the only wrong answer is not doing anything at all.

If you are doing “something”, then you are on the right path.
