  • Top 15 Survival That Anyone Serious About Surviving A SHTF Situation Should Own! 

    Not everyone’s a Navy Seal or an Eagle Scout. So for those who haven’t received hands-on training in survival skills, studying a quality survival manual is your next best option. Whether you have a full library of self-preservation books, or you are looking to buy your first survival guide, check out our some of our favorite titles. One of these 15 books just might save your life some day.

    But these books do you no good if you do not read them and retain the knowledge they hold. The best way to hang onto all that know-how is to put it into practice. See what works for you, and see what works in your area. Good luck, and happy reading.

    Your Survival   
    This manual by Dr. Bob Arnot and Mark Cohen is a simple, easy-to-read book focusing on disaster survival. The book is broken into three sections that provide advice “Before Disaster Strikes,” “During an Emergency,” and “After the Crisis.” This book is packed with expert tips and helpful checklists so you can purchase and organize your food, first aid equipment, and supplies. As a bonus, the book comes with a 90-minute disaster preparedness video that the whole family should watch.

     

    • How To Stay Alive In The Woods   
      This Bradford Angier book is an absolute classic, and the small paperback can be easily tucked into your gear and taken along for the trip. The content is fairly solid, though the drawings leave you a little short on the details of certain skills like setting traps and fire building. Although the language is somewhat dated now (it was written in 1956), the book has one great thing going for it: The information is evergreen. That is, the skills presented have anyways worked and always will work. If you are lucky, this little book might be all you ever need.

       

      Wild Plants

      Wild Plants

      Peterson’s Field Guide to Edible Wild Plants 
      Every survival library needs a copy of this book, and so does every Bug Out Bag. The 400 plants described in this book are found throughout the eastern half of the U.S., with many of them growing coast to coast. This concise book tells you which wild plants to use for salad, tea, root vegetables, and many other foraged foods. Don’t let the black and white line drawings deter you. This book has the details and an extensive number of plants that many slick-looking books with color photos are lacking. Never go hungry again with this book in your pocket.

      • Outdoor Survival Skills  
        This is the book that started my obsession with survival skills. I was 16 years old when I first bought Larry Dean Olsen’s Outdoor Survival Skills. This is a solid little wilderness survival book that shows us that less is sometimes more. The book teaches Native American-inspired skill sets to acquire shelter, water, food, fire, tools, and much more. With this book you can effectively learn how to make string, archery tackle, and even functional friction fire equipment. Over the years, I’ve actively field-tested the lessons in this book, successfully replicating the skills outlined in its pages. If I can do it, so can you.
