Wilderness Survival Books & Manuals


Presentation of several options when it comes to outdoor survival books. These are great sources of information. Some are small enough to add to your kit. I’ve read each of the books, some more than once. I also frequently look up info in them. Each book is described and rated. Review by ryanjcus

    that always comes in handy

  2. Its also a good idea to carry a small brochure with essential information about survival. Some kits from stores have it, I found something similar, not the most complete, but better than nothing. I dont know if I can post de adress, but just google this: Personal Survival KIT (PSK) Cheat Sheet. You can print it if you want to.

  3. whats the difference between the sas handbook and sas guide

    Have you read the Fox Fire books? I want to get a copy of both book #1 and #2! they come highly recommended from many of my sources!

  5. Great video,I have the SAS book , you might also check out the Camping and wilderness survival book by Paul Tawrell.

    I’ve just ordered the SAS book, I’ve heard great things from everyone I know who’s bought it and this video has helped out, thanks man

  9. good videos, look at the book from( Les Stroud the host of survivor man) Suervive! essential skillsand tactics to get you out of anywhere-alive lots of pics and tips

  10. Thanx again for a great video, have the SAS book (the mini one with a really bad compas =) but have not read it yet, will on my next camping trip though.

  11. Thanks Buddy I appreciate it!

  12. SAS Survival Handbook is SOOO!! mine great vid man

  13. That’s on my list. But there’s alot in front of it. The US military, Survival, Evasion, And Recovery, is great for kits because it’s small, compact, and has waterproof pages. I like the evasion info in it too.

  14. another suggestion- if you are looking for a procket sized book, you should definetly get “SAS Survival Guide” it’s about 3×5 inches and 1 inch thick…its like a shorten and smaller version of the “SAS Survival Handbook”

    i have it =) and i also have “Special Forces Survival Guide” both books very good

    Good info. Oddly enough, I don’t have any of those books, although I do have a couple which are supposedly SAS survival guides. “The SAS Guide to Tracking” and another that I forget the name of. Its been a while since I looked through either, but I don’t think the tracking one was that great. I’ll look for the one that you have.

    I know I am just piling on with all of the existing praise, but thanks for the review. It’s easier to trust a review when some one puts their name and face to it. And now, I am off to buy the SAS book.

    thank you you rule

  21. Yes, many different hunting weapons, also snares and traps.

  22. maddog236033 | February 21, 2010 at 3:52 am |

    hey do the tell how to make weapons in the sas?

  23. rabidmonkeygirl | February 21, 2010 at 4:00 am |

    Hey, great review! Could you provide the same service for you tube videos on the same subject? For instance, Maine Primitive Skills School has vids on debris hut and fire, as does expert village, but they are light years apart in depth of material covered. It would be cool to have things like that “rated” as you did with the books. Thanks!

  24. Yeah, I almost picked it up one time, I went for the SAS instead. Maybe sometime I’ll get it. I have a large list goodies to get and not enough money.

  25. I’m surprised you dont have Tom Brown’s Field Guide to Wilderness Survival in your collection. Check it out if you haven’t already read it.
