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."
