wanted books

Recommended Posts

i am looking to expand my survival skills, and have decided that since im a fast reader and can easily absorb the information, i should get books geared towards specific survival areas. in general i am looking for nursing/doctors textbooks, surgical techniques/ first aid information/ things of that nature. also looking for education materials in any subject for persons aged five and up, including college curiculum. mathematics are not my strong suit so im looking for anything above long division really. so basic algebra, geometry etc. along with nursing materials and manuals, id like to develop basic midwivery skills as well. plant propagation and cultivation would be helpful, as would foraging guides. id like to get my hands on some old fashioned cookbooks as well. grange cookbooks my gram used to call them. also anything to do with canning, preserving, dehydrating or other food preparation.

hey reg, he fell for it, AGAIN! suckerrrrrr

 

LOL.... We'll corrupt him yet.

 

Jessie, look at some of the local historical sites for some old cookbooks. A book I would recommend for medical is the US Army Special Forces Medical handbook or Navy Corpsman book. These are probably the best medics our military has to offer (or anywhere for that matter). They cover everything from cuts and bruises to field expedient minor surgeries. Bradford Angiers (sp) has some really good field guildes on wild edible and medicinal plants for foraging.

Hey, I was looking for some of these books also I went to a couple libraries around my area and asked if they had any, and sure enough they did, I asked how often they were checked out and if they'd be willing to sell them, so I added about five books to my collection so that may be an option just throwing out ideas!

Went to the Flea Market today, picked up a copy right 1945 American Red Cross First Aid text book, and "The Old Dirt Dobber's Garden Book" by Thomas Williams, the gardening book isn't quite what I thought it would be but both books have good information maybe check them out?

If you are trying to do this on the cheap, which is the way to do it, Flea Markets and Swap meets are a good source. Also, garage sales and estate sales have yielded a lot of good book for my collection. Finally, you might try the local library-- the one near me has annual sales of the older, more worn volumes in their collection to raise funds. I don't think I have paid more than 5 bucks for any of the useful books I have picked up, since they mainly deal with subjects only a prepper or homesteader would want these days.

Carla Emery is the bomb. Also, check out Susan Gregersen on Kindle. She has several short little stories (fiction) for 99 cents each that are chock full of common sense prepper material. Also, her latest book, a non-fiction pamplet-sized e-book, is entitled Poverty Prepping and is a great beginner's guide to food preparation and purchases on a tight budget. She really helps you get your priorities in order with not only what to buy but when to buy it. I need to figure out some way to print this to give to certain relatives.

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.
       
    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
