20 Books You Should Have on Your Survival Bookshelf

     There is something about a book.  The smell of the pages.  The weight of it in your hand.  With tablets for reading, books on tape, and ebooks that you can download to your computer, the real book seems to be going to the wayside.  However, when it comes to survival, physical books are a must.  Books are a resource that you can go to at any time, including when SHTF.  Books don't need any source of power to work and therefore they can be your best resource when things go wrong. 

Here are 20 survival books that should be on your bookshelf:

  1. Unique Outdoor Survival Skills

    Don't you find it ironic that even with all this scandalously expensive education, people today know so little?

    If they can't even fix their car, how are they supposed to handle a - let's say - long term food shortage?

    You can't possibly hope they'd know how to garden and produce their own food, save seeds for next year, and use leaves plowed under to fertilize the soil.

    Not to mention trapping, catching, skinning and cooking a rabbit...

    These may seem advanced outdoor survival skills now, but back in the days, they were merely called "Living".

    Watch this short video now and discover a set of unique and fantastic survival skills used and perfected by our ancestors.

    Don't wait for the next crisis to hit and live to regret you had the chance to learn these skills but didn't.

    Thanks again.
