When educating yourself on tactics and methods used in disaster preparation and wilderness/urban survival it is important to make sure you are learning from good resources.

Here is a list of the 10 ten survival books that you can order on amazon.

is the complete set of the Bushcraft 101 guide and you may see me refer to it often as it was my first survival book as a young kid and contains one of the most extensive guides on how to survive in the wild to date with detailed drawings and tutorials.

2.) Prepper’s Long-Term Survival Guide: Food, Shelter, Security, Off-the-Grid Power and More Life-Saving Strategies for Self-Sufficient Living

– There are countless numbers of books out there that will teach us how to make a temporary shelter or survive for a few days on our own while we wait to be rescued but there are far fewer amount of guides out there that will teach you how to survive, long term, in the event of a major grid shut down. I highly suggest owning this book if you want to learn more about living off grid completely.

3.) SAS Survival Handbook, Third Edition: The Ultimate Guide to Surviving Anywhere
