Survival, Preparedness, and Off Off-Grid Books You Should Own, Read, and Study

2/28/2012 - 3rd Day - Morning  – Greetings friends.  I promised that I would post links to some great companion books to The Last Pilgrims, so here is that post.  I endlessly receive emails asking for a list of books that everyone should own.  So I'm going to put together this list for you, and you should absolutely, positively, without question own every book on this list.  Then you should read and study them.  The list is certainly not complete, but I will add books to this list as I come across them (or as I remember books that I've read).  I will link to this list on the left hand side of this blog so you can continue to come back to it and check it as I build the list.  Many people have read (or are reading) The Last Pilgrims, and they want to know how the Vallenses survived and thrived.  Since this is how we live, this book comprises many of the books we have studied to learn how to live the way that we do.

As I said, this list is not yet complete.  I will continue to add to and expand it.  I will only add books that I absolutely, positively believe that you should own and read.  The link to this list will be on the left hand side of this blog so you can check back regularly as you build your library.

Great list of books. Have read some and family owns one. Had an original country living book by Carla many years ago but lost it along many moves. Need to save up some more money to add additional copies of some of these to our collection. Thanks and blessings to you and family. Abiga/Karen deut28bless at hotmail

Michael, I recently bought your "Surviving Off Off-Grid" book and was pleased to read it. I've been blogging about this and other self sufficiency topics for a number of years. I wrote this in 2009 and it's truer today than it was then. http://quietandpeaceablelife.blogspot.com/2009/03/for-such-time-as-this.html
Best regards,

Great list! Thanks for including my book. :) I have many of these books, as I purchased them after reading SOOG and the book list at the end. Though I do see some news ones now!

Side note: At first I couldn't see the list. I was wondering if I was crazy, missing it somehow. Then I disabled the ad-blocker plugin and voila -- list! So just in case any one else is not seeing it, that's the answer. :)

I could not see the list either until I turned off my Adblocker plugin for Chrome and now I can see it.

I own four of them. Looks like I have a lot more to go. Thank you for the list. The books look like great choices.
