Survival & Prepping References

Last Updated: 30 August 2016

This page is a comprehensive list of all the external references I point to on the site.  It is a list of both hyperlinks to websites and also to traditional hardcopy books.  Because of the nature of any collapse and the scenarios we as preppers are getting ready for I endeavour to include at least one hardcopy reference for every hyperlink I include.  There will most likely be no internet or it will be spotty at best after a collapse and books don’t require network connections and electricity to be useful.  I highly recommend you start building a library before the collapse because afterwards it will be too late.

Note:  This page is a work in progress and will be continually updated so check back frequently and if there is a page or book you think should be here but is not leave a comment below or shoot me an email: Cincinnatus
