    Hey all. So, my little sisters birthday is coming up and she said she wants books on prepping, survival, homesteading, gardening and similar topics. Looking for any and all recommendations for books on these topics. Thanx in advance.

    Any of these: http://www.thesurvivaldoctor.com/survival-books/ unless she's already a nurse or first responder. Too many people focus on how to grow food or build shelter but not what to do when your campfire burns, or you break an arm bugging out.
