25 Books Every Prepared Family Should Own — Preppers tend to be information junkies. We surf the net, participate in forums, and download PDFs with abandon. You need to have some in a physical format.

E-books are a great way to store a lot of information in a teeny tiny space, but what happens when the grid goes down?

Preppers tend to be information junkies. We surf the net, participate in forums, and download PDFs with abandon. But some things, you need to have in a physical format. This is particularly important for specific how-to information and medical information. You don’t want your Kindle to run out of juice while you’re in the midst of a complicated First Aid procedure.

Preppers tend to be relatively old-fashioned, and one thing that most of us have in common is a yen to own physical copies of information that we find valuable.

There are tons of other great books out there, so if your favorite isn’t included on the list, that doesn’t mean that I found anything wrong with it. The following list is of the books that I personally own and have found to be valuable.

Here are the 25 preparedness books that I recommend that you all have in your personal libraries.

Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food

Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.

Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.

Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.

People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.

These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
