What are some good books to read on prepping? I have the prepper's pocket guide by Bernie Carr but would like to know some more good ones to order. I want to learn as much as I can.

Where did you get that guide? I havent been able to find any prepping books in any bookstores in my area. Does it have alot of helpful info in it.

To answer your original question, ive heard of a prepping book titled "Retreats and Relocations" by an author named Rawles, i dont recall his first name.

The author is James Wesley Rawles. Patriots, Survivors, are novels about shtf scenerios. Very good.

TEOTWAWKI=The end of the world as we know it.

Is in manual form.

Amazon has them. While you wait on your order, go to survivalblog.com. All the above are Rawles products.

Cody Lundin comes at survival from a different angle.
I can 't remember but one of is books 98.6 The art of keeping your @zz alive.

One second after is a novel about an emp and the aftermath.

I've read patriots and one second after, both very good, very thought provoking. I don't really consider Rawles to be a very good story teller, but the one of his I read (patriots) was still very good. It also had some useful survival information.

His style can be hard to follow, he jumps from character to character. I have to reacess were I an in the storyline now and again.

Good, I think they will keep you thinking, paranoid, depressed, and taking prozac. Enjoy, Happy New Years. Ok and prepared.

I really like my Petersons Field Guide of Edible Plants in North America. Where I am water isn't an issue, but food could be. It's amazing the resources provided in this book. Pine needles for vitamin C, dandelion greens, Cat Tails as flour, Syrup, Clover, etc.. etc.... I could survive off the stuff in my yard that I would have never thought twice to even touch. I highly recommend this book.
