Are you busy prepping lately or are you striving to be more self sufficient If you've ever looked any resources up you know there are so many books out there on prepping it can be overwhelming! Here are my recommendations for the best emergency preparedness books that you can have in your library. Each of these has it's own special qualities and are useful for different areas of being self sufficient. Do you own any of these yet?
This book doesn't have much on kitchen info or recipes but if you have animals you will want to get this one! It has large and detailed chapters on raising and taking care of all different kinds of animals.
Another great resource. This book goes in depth about "old fashioned" living. Everything from building various cold storage in your backyard to planting a good garden. This book is less "prepping" and more self sufficiency.
This is a good and simple resource. It covers in detail what to do for all different kinds of natural disasters and how to prepare for them. If you are new to prepping or really want to work on being ready for natural disasters this is a good, basic, easy read.
This book is another HUGE one with all kinds of info. This book covers food storage in detail, medical prepping, making prepping part of your normal routine, and much more. This is a very comprehensive book.
Now this might seem like an odd book on this list but the idea is to have a GOOD basic cookbook. Every kitchen that wants to be self sufficient must have one! The Mennonite Cookbook I mentioned above was actually my first cookbook as a young girl and I still have it and use it regularly, it's excellent! (And huge!)
What do you think of this list of my best emergency preparedness books? Is there any that you would add? What do you think about having paper books like these on your bookshelf versus ebooks?
