Depends very much on your definition of "survival":
you have to define the problem. to get down to brass tacks: Start with:
Cody Lundins': "98.6 ( keepin' your a** alive)" It gets into the physical/ physiological aspects of keeping the animal functioning.
Cody been on t.v. lately with Dave canterbury; lives off the grid in the AZ desert and teaches primitive survival skills
Some people assume "survival-ism" automatically infers "guerilla warfare/madmax scenarios...or of all ridiculous things:killer "zombies"
IMHO : backyard "Rabbit raising :and alcohol fuel fermentation; 4season gardening and dried foods books are far more valuable topics for the survival
library shelf than: "Homebrew explosives and booby traps".But I am familiar and comfortable with all my firearms.
The fox fire series are valuable: probably available at your library though I think they are reprinting them; they are collections of old ("
Appalachian hills" ) skills taught and recorded by the people who lived every day with very little.
Humanure handbook: safe human waste disposal and use.
IMHO all (most?) of the government printed military manuals are faulted by being geared toward staying alive ( relatively short term)to be "found"
by and to rejoin with friendly forces.( where the "survival emergency" effectively ends at the chow hall with a hot meal...).
but books are just booksnotoverlyexpensive and all information is valuable.You may not use 85% but some where a 1% idea or lesson might pop in to
your head and be useful..
