Rocky has put together a free Skills Library for Preppers. It's made up of books from the 1800s through early 1900s. All of these books are in the public domain or have expired copyrights. Most are available for free but are pretty time consuming to search for on the web.
There are many skills and a lot of knowledge that has been lost and many of these are skills that can be invaluable in surviving a disaster or a crisis. Although the Survival Skills library hasn't been completed yet, it has grown quickly and there is a huge number of free books that can be downloaded at the site.
