101 "Must Have" Books for Preppers

On the topics of homesteading, survival and preparedness, there are hundreds of
good books for preppers to read that are entertaining, helpful, instructional and also
lifesaving. From first aid to the first line of tactical defense there's something for "The
Survival Mom" and "Doomsday Prepper  "When All Hell Breaks Loose."

There are
prepper books about bugging out, bugging in, or getting a pandemic flu bug.
Whether you want to read about beans, bandages, bullets or bugout bags, all the
best books for preppers are listed here. Prepare now to "Get Out Of Dodge!" Learn
"How To Survive The End of World As We Know It."

Prepper fiction books are fun and educational, but reference manuals could be a
prepper's survival lifeline. Imagine a situation where your beloved is sick or injured and
there's no doctor. Such will be the time you'll reach for the medical knowledge of Dr.
Bones himself, Joseph Alton, M.D., and his wife, Nurse Amy Alton. "The Survival
Medicine Handbook: A Guide for When Help is Not on the Way" is a practical medical
book with preppers in mind. Another popular book from this prepping duo is "The Doom
and Bloom Survival Medicine Handbook: Keep your Loved Ones Healthy in Every
Disaster, from Wildfires to a Complete Societal Collapse."  And Dr. Bones also gives you
the truth about Ebola, in his newest book above, "The Ebola Survival Handbook."
