Below are the best preparedness and survival books I have read (as well as a few I haven’t). I’ve read so many books about disaster preparedness that my head spins thinking about it. I’ve read good and bad books and everything in between. Know that I own the majority of these survival books in my own library. I don’t recommend them lightly. Topics range from long-term preparedness to first-aid and ancestral knowledge and other “lost” skills. REMEMBER: You can purchase all of the survival supplies that you like BUT experience is what you ultimately need to survive.
