A good reference library is essential to a prepper. There is no way any one person can remember everything they need to know so I compiled a list of reference books for preppers. There just isn’t enough time to learn it all. I own all the books below, and have already reviewed most of them on our sister site prepperbookshelf, so I feel comfortable recommending them to you. If I had to “bug-out” I would try my best to fit in some of my reference library, and while I can not fit every book I own in a car, these 18 Vital Reference Books for Preppers would definitely be the first ones packed.
