this forum is the best source for information. The Army books seem to be the worst. I;ve seen some good ones, and some poor ones. Anybody got a recommendation?

the army survival manuals (aviation survival, survival FM, SF handbook) are the best..you just have to be able to take time to read them. Another is the SAS survival guide. Dan

Get Ragnar benson's live off the land in country and in the city. This book has it all and it is actually a good read with great info. Also get ragnar benson's survial retreat....DO not get the modern survial retreat ONLY GET the old version.

The SAS survival book is pretty good, as well.

crowTrobot, Just what kind of environment do you want survival information for? I've got a couple recommendations on desert survival: Desert Survival Skills by David Alloway and Desert Survival Handbook by Charles A. Lehman

I own the following and feel they are good BUT there are lots of info out there. Nuclear War Survival Skills, Where There Is No Doctor, Survial Retreat and Modern Survial Retreat, Encylopedia Of Country Living, and latest military survival and first aid manuals. Also keep Pocket Survival Manual and First Aide Manual in Jeep.

I would recommend a book called "Wilderness Survial" by Gregg Davenport. He is a former Air force Survival Instructor and runs a survival school in Colorado i think. His web site is www.simply-survival.com

[b]The Soldiers Handbook[/b] by ret. Col. Herbert and 1949 copy of the [b]Boy Scout manual[/b] are probably 2 of the best survival books out there, IMHO. Finding them could be a problem, newer Scout manuals lack the plant recognition sections of the older ones. Mike
