    Default SAS Survival Guide

    I picked up this manual yesterday at the book store for $7.00 US.

    It's smaller in size from the original manual. It appears to have the same contents as the larger manual just smaller print. The dimensions are 3 1/4" X 4 1/5".

    I think it will make an excellent carry manual due to it's size and contents.

    I own a few of those, I put them in all my bags, and packs. I also have the full size one, and a few others. Very useful.

    Its completely battered but it still damn useful.

    There is also another SAS survival manual you might consider.. it is "SAS Essential Survival" by Barry Davies BEM. Lewis International Inc. publisher. It is narrower and thinner but fits nicely into a backpack.. He is also from the same SAS training school. It has a lot of the same information.. plus some more and actual pictures of proceedures and equipment.

    I've heard of this book before. I figure I'll get it for myself. Prob download it first to glance through, before I actually buy it

    The US Army has a survival guide as well that this website is completely based off of. I forget what it's called, but I have it somewhere.

    I just downloaded the entire thing as the original book file. A lot easier that way. But that's illegal (I think) so I'm not gonna elaborate on it.

    Default The Official Book Thread

    I know there are many threads and posts with some of your favorite book titles in them, lets get them all together. What say you?
    How about a couple of different categories?

    1. Survival skills/equipment
    - 98.6 degrees "the art of keeping your *** alive" by Cody Lundin, SAS survival guide and mental endurance guide, Backpacker Magazine puts out some informative books on trekking, backpacking and camp cooking, Tom Brown's guides, When Technology fails by Mathew Stein, The Complete Tracker by Len McDougall,


    2. Survival stories-
    Deep Survival by Laurence Gonzales, Stuff by Spike Walker,


    3. Primitive skills and how to-The Alaskan Bootleggers Bible by Leon Kania,One Man's Wilderness by Keith Proenneke, Root Cellaring by Mike and Nancy Bubel, Building the Alaska Log Home by Tom Walker,


    4. Fiction-Tenderfoot Trapper by Arthur Catherall, Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson, Dean Koontz stuff is good for a light read, Books by Neil Gaiman, Jack London, Mark Twain,

    5. I also like reading about hidden history and lost civilizations non fiction- Anything by Graham Hancock

    These are just a few to get us started. My Amazon wish list reads like an inventory for the Library of Congress!

    Let's seem some titles and authors folks .

    Doesn't have anything to do with wilderness, or survival, but my two favorite books of all time would be:
    Jude the Obscure-Thomas Hardy
    The Sun Also Rises-Ernest Hemingway

    One of my favorite books was "Thunder Below" by Eugene Flukey. He was a submarine skipper in WWII who changed the way tactics were used. He was awarded the Medal of Honor while he was on the USS Barb. I had a chance to meet him before he passed away. Truely an amazing man.

    My favorite are cookbooks from the great depression and WWII. Some pretty inventive stuff to make when you have very little. This might become a very popular genre if food prices continue to climb.


    I have Grandma's wartime kitchen. Which is a modern collecton of WWII thrifty and ration cooking. A search of it on Amzon will bring up a slew.
