Hello ATSers! I want to see some new ideas on books for survival. The rules are simple: 1. once a book has been listed it can not be resubmitted. 2. If you list a book, you must also list the author. 3. You can not list military FM's or TM's (other hand books and guides are ok though), I have them all and want to see a different aspect of it. If you know of a book that would be better suited, then please explain and add it to the list. So, I'll start:

1. "The Total Outdoorsman Manual" by T. Edward Nickens, Et all.
2. "The SAS guide to Tracking" by Bob Carss
3. "Tracking: Signs of Man, Signs of Hope" by David Diaz and V.L. McCann


All three of these can be found on Amazon.com

i read other threads on this subject , and may have posted , but i like these type of threads and will partake . "wild wood wisdom " by ellsworth jaeger is my favorite survival book . while it is old with black and white drawings instead of pictures , it contains more than enough info to help you obtain a comfortable survival situation . everything from making furniture , to procuring and making dinner. i do have updated wild edible books , only because they contain more types of wild edibles and multiple photos of them . samuel thayer has a couple books out on the subject.

" When All Hell Breaks Loose" by Cody Lundin

It has to be my favorite survival book I have ever purchased. It's hilarious for one, but still practical and full of some amazing info. I rely more on all of my ID books, but you can't really go wrong with this book.

Potentially a bit dated now, but Life After Doomsday by Bruce Clayton has made its way to my list recently. He also has a newer book called Life After Terrorism that I've heard some favorable reviews of.

The Foxfire book..series..by Eliot Wigginton


Truly the BOOKS when it comes to survival. Followed by the US Army Survival Manual: FM 21-76.

Two indispensible series/book that should be in everybody's library.

Dare to Prepare by Holly Drennan Deyo - a 540+-page tome but lots of good stuff in there covering almost every conceivable disaster.
