I bought a book several years ago from a outdoor store..Cabelas I think....it was called....a trappers life in the wilderness I believe...I have read
it several times, it covers trapping, tanning skins the natural way with things from mother nature that are within the ares of a trapper...It covers
building a shanty, and a cabin, for both long term stays and short quick over night shelters...
The thing I really like about the book is, it not only tells you how to do it, but it has pictures drawn in it for you to see what the writer is
saying incase you don't understand what you read.
Another book that is better than the show, is alone in the wild(wilderness) twin lakes Alaska..the book is 10 times better than the documentary.
The SAS survival book/guide is also another good book to have on hand.
Depending on where your going to be living, starting over..I would also look at the climate and growing season there, and get a book on what to plant
and not plant for food in that area...
if you look around on surivial sites and read posts, you will see that several books or things always get brought up for the areas your looking to
