BPH, are those in order? The top 4 are you most valued?

Links not needed, but title and author would help others look them up.

Idea of post is to see if there are (4) that rise to the top amongst us.

Yes... they're in order. The order they were sitting on my shelf at the time I wrote down the titles and authors down.

Um, the list IS the titles and authors.

Limiting anything like that is an exercise in futility, IMHO.

Fair enough. The names and authors was for the guy above you. Preppers do what the hell they want eh? Ok, noted... can’t follow a simple rule... LOL this thread will now descend into mockery and “I like frogs” quotes. No wonder people can’t organize in this country.

Listing them according to importance assumes you know what the disaster will be. We have been facing the possibilities for ages. There in the PNW though y'all have a few more options than most.

That being said, here are a couple off the top of my head.

USDA canning book. (There are several varieties of this book with the same info. You can choose)
The Survival Medicine Handbook, Joseph Alton MD
ARRL antenna book
Any or all of the Foxfire books.
LDS PREPAREDNESS MANUAL is packed full of good information.

Ok, so that's 5. You have permission to bust my chops too.

I did not think of the ARRL antenna book, I do have it though. I keep hard copies of everything, even printed the LDS book and slapped it in a three ring binder.

Less than many, more than some, I prefer my information in hard copy. It's easy to loose power and if that happens you've lost access to digital info. I bought a copy of tha LDS book and got the companion book for leadership to go a long with it. There is some good info in that book too. I'm not a Mormon either but have friends that are and got hooked up with a good deal.

I really should add to what I have but I think now the time is limited.

I like/have books and realize their value, but I feel that if you don't already know what you need to know those books won't be handy when you need them. Unless all the libraries get burned down I think knowing a local dentist and/or doctor/vet a better choice. Plenty of farmers around me. JMHO:)
