Is there a way we could start a free for Kindle thread? I have downloaded about 20 various prepping/homesteading/survival books that were free for a few days only.

Dude, that’s a freaking great idea. I guess it all depends on your areas of interest. I have some archery bow and arrow building free books and some bug out bag recipes and food resource free books to share. There are a bizillion military surplus how-to free books available. How do we kick this off?

Would area of interest even matter? I think in a survival/shtf situation any how-to book has some need to it.

For example: This book was free for a limited time. It is still free to borrow for Prime members. Some of the links I would post, you would have to download in a day or two because the free time would expire. This is is very basic, very short, and a great easy 15 minute read, but great info for a beginner.

I think sharing is a great idea as long as we do not violate any copy write laws and only post FREE eBooks/articles.

This is with the understanding that most of these books are free for a limited time only. I have many books that I downloaded on Amazon on a free release weekend, come Monday they are back to normal price. With that said, here are some that are free all the time.

Do all these apply to everyone? No, it depends on what type of disaster you are preparing for. There is just a ton of useful information that is free without having to go to the library.

So glad I found this thread! Had just mentioned to the hubby that I need to find some survival books. I find it odd and a tiny bit depressing that hundreds of years ago people grew up learning how to survive. Hunting and farming and producing our own necessities was second nature even as a youngster yet today we are searching for books, videos, and other individuals to teach us these skills. Survival should be a new class taught to kids in school these days.

Right, there's something naturally beautiful, fulfilling and almost spiritual about tending our own little plot (pics below) but as a city-bred creature I wouldn't even know where to begin (sniffle)

Here is another book from the Boy Scouts. This time it is the Field book (not to be confused with the handbook). It is segmented into 4 sections with a total of 34 chapters:

Leadership and Trek Preparation (6 Chapters)
Leave No Trace (4 Chapters)
Trek Adventures (16 Chapters)
Appreciating Our Environment (8 Chapters)

Unfortunately, you have to download each chapters separately (all are in .pdf format).
Simply click on one of the 4 section titles at the top of the page and then click a chapter title from the left side column and
there will be a download link at the bottom of each page.

Start Here: Fieldbook
