7 Must Reads for the Beginner Prepper

7 Must Read for the Beginning Prepper

This list of 7 Must Reads for the Beginning Prepper is short and sweet. A great start to the Post Apocalyptic genre. These are in no way to scare you, but they will make you think. Don’t go crazy prepping after reading them. Pace yourself. Whatever you do, don’t forget to continue living. Don’t ask my how I know this.
Let me know what you think after you have read a few.

After America was the first or second book I read when I started prepping 4 years ago. It is of the Post Apocalyptic genre. The Amazon reviews suck, which is probably why I liked it. It is the 2nd in a series, but I didn’t read the first and I was fine. Why is it on the list at all. It was eye opening for me and helped push me to start prepping. Not that the scenario in the book is likely, but it made me think.

One Second After is also post apocalyptic in nature. I took notes while reading this one. I learn more from books that aren’t text-booky in nature, and for me this was a great book for that. It’s about an EMP (Electro Magentic Pulse) hitting America. This scenario isn’t as far fetched as one would hope or think, whether from the sun or one of our enemies. An EMP has the potential to destroy our technology advancements. This story is about a man who struggles to keep his family safe and alive.

Patriots written by John Wesley Rawles who coined the term American Redoubt, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. Alson Eastern parts of Washington and Oregon. Now this book is about economic collapse…..So, pretty eye opening for the beginning prepper and I believe, pretty realistic. Of all of Rawles’ books this is the best one. They can be read as stand alones or as a series.

How to Survive the End of the World As We Know It. Also by Rawles. I picked this one up at Costco actually. This book is more of a how to in nature. As with most educational books, you want a hard copy, not a digital. You want to be able to access them at all times.

Survival Mom…This was the first book I bought myself. Mother’s Day 2012 at a bookstore in Portland. If you know me you know as much as I LOVE books, I rarely purchase them new. This one wasn’t even on sale, that is how much I wanted it. It is a great how to and practical for the ‘average mom’ meaning not a survivalist oo rah type of book.

Preppers Blueprint I started reading this for a review and it is fabulous! 56 chapters PACKED full of information. I have the digital (for the review) I will be buying a hard copy.

Prepper’s Long-term Survival Guide. You can read my review to see why I recommend this one. “Food, Shelter, Security, Off-the-Grid Power and More Life-Saving Strategies for Self-Sufficient Living” It is another how to book, but while they might overlap in a few topics, they are from different authors, therefore different perspectives and a-ha moments.

Food Storage for Self Sufficiency and Survival. I also have a review for you to read. This is nothing but food storage. How to, best ways, etc. Again, you’ll want a hard copy as a reference for your home library.
