These aren't "books" but I saved them to a flash drive. I'm working on printing them all and making my own book with them. On the right of this page there are 17 pdf files:
TACDA Acedemy

222 pages of Mormon preps: LDS Preparedness

I'll shoot you a pm with a few more links to save forum space.

Oh, the Deep Winter series by Thomas Sherry is pretty solid in ideas about rebuilding communities.

Might wanna print all that out. SHTF computer might not be working, nor the printer, and ink cartridges will probably be in short supply

I found that reading the book Undaunted Courage by Stephen Ambrose was very revealing to me and my "outdoors man" life. This is about the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Most of the country was still the way God made it. The men would lose weight eating between 8,000 and 12,000 calories a day at times. It's hard work. Lewis documented well his supplies. It's a good read and makes you think if you had to return to nature today.

That's a great book.

I've read it a couple of times. It was amazing that they could eat such a huge amount of meat and still not satisfy their hunger. That is a good indicator of needing a complete diet. They were not getting the complete proteins the body needs. Almost no carbs, mostly meat, what was described in the text as "poor", meaning very lean. I don't think I could have done what those fellows did, my hat is off to them.

Another good read about wilderness adventure/survival is "River of Doubt" about Teddy Roosevelt's trip down the Amazon river.
