Please put the question to the **, **,*misc.survivalism*, *alt.survival* or *misc.rural* Usenet newsgroups. You could even resort to the tried and true method, a book.

The following is a list of books that I have found to have useful information. It is by no means an exhaustive list on the subject. If you have books you would like to suggest, please feel free to e-mail me with the particulars. If you can please include the same kind of information about the book in question as you see below, particularly the ISBN #, if it has one.
