Number 3 on the list: Bushcraft 101: A Field Guide to the Art of Wilderness Survival by Dave Canterbury.
The book Bushcraft 101 makes you ready for your next deep woods trip with advice on making the most of your time outside. The book is based around the 5Cs of Survivability. Canterbury came up with the idea of cutting tools, covering, combustion devices, containers, and cordage.
Number 2 on the list: The Survival Handbook: Essential Skills for Outdoor Adventure by DK Publishing.
The Survival Handbook teaches us how to find water, make shelters, and spot, catch, and cook wild food. It also teaches us what to do if there’s an emergency. The book shows which essential first-aid techniques to use when, how to mount a rescue, and even how to get yourself found. It show more about how to be rescued than the other books on the list.
Number 1 on the best survival book list is: The SAS Survival Guide second edition by John ‘Lofty’ Wiseman.
If you can only buy one survival book, this is the one to get. My favorite and the top rated survival book ever sold on Amazon. SAS Survival Guide 2E is the revised and updated edition of this masterpiece. It covers everything from simple first aid and camping skills to strategies for handling any type of disaster. It has long been considered the top handbook for outdoor skills and preparedness. Survival expert John “Lofty” Wiseman now includes information on all of the latest navigation and survival technology in this newer version. If have a hard time seeing the small print in this version of the book I suggest you try the larger print full size book. SAS Survival Handbook: The Ultimate Guide to Surviving Anywhere.
