  • Best survival book...

    I was wondering what you guys/gals thought was the best survival book. I am trying to decide on one to buy, and tried to search for a thread here...didn't find one, so I'm starting this one. What book is the absolute, must have survival guide?

    Hi Nic,
    I've read quite a few.
    The SAS Survival Guide written by John Wiseman
    is the best overall guide I've seen.

    Get the pocket version, it's like 8 dollars and it will fit in your pocket,
    BOB, etc.

    Since you work at the mall, a book store there can order it for you
    or you can get it online but you will pay shipping.

    I would suggest getting a couple of them, If you are going to place an
    order, let me know I'd like to have another one to keep in my bag.

    God's Peace

      Thanks. I had looked at it, and thought it looked thorough; I just wanted to see if it was as good as I thought. Thanks for confirming that. If I do order, I will let you know. Thanks.

      Blessings,

          For survival when you land, have you looked at the Foxfire books?

            "How to Survive on Land and Sea" (Craighead-Craighead) US Naval Institute LCC # 57-21769. Tropical to artic survival as well as on the sea. Pretty much covers everything plant and animal ID. Shelters, navigation in both hemispheres, signals, even radiation. It was produced by the US Navy and USAAF following WW2 using the input of 100's of downed flyers, it is essentialy the syllabus of the US Navy Survival School in Pensicola FL. Get the illustrated civilian version with the fold-out maps and diagrams if you can find a copy.

                Friends, It depends on rather you want to survive for two weeks or the rest of your life. The best book I have found on this subject is, get ready for this, Carla Emery 's Old Fashoned Recipe Book. It is hard to find and very expensive but it has been updated and now is known as The Encyclopedia Of Country Living. It has everything in it from buying land to butchering animals. It is available from Amazon. I know we are very proud of our weapons and stockpiles of ammo. But if you want to see your grandchildren thrive check out this book.
                Those who would trade freedom for security will end up with neither.

                        I decided that in addition to the SAS survival book, I also got the SAS Urban Survival book. Depends on where I am at the time so thought it wouldn't hurt to be prepared for anything.

                          Yea SkyOwl, I agree. Those "SAS guys" must be very busy!:D I think "Lofty Wiseman" & Barry Davies are two of the most famous.
