As prior posters mentioned I'll second the Foxfire books, and Tom Brown's guides. All of them if you can get them. Read them before TSHTF.
1) First aid book, like EMT guide "Emergency Care and Transportation of the Sick and Injured", Amercan Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
2) Comprehensive hunting, fishing, tracking and fieldcraft guide. Can anyone recommend anything like that?
3) US special ops survival guide.
4) Guide to edible plants indigineous to your area.
5) A map of caves in your area (somewhat tongue-in-cheek yes )
