    Outdoor survival skills by Larry Dean Olsen is the best I"ve ever read and I"ve read nearly everything. the SAS book is quite good, tho. The American military one is way too generalized to help you much and way too full of stuff that's meaningless to the non-soldier.

    As stated by many, Wiseman's SAS book is a must-have. As well as the U.S. Air Force 64-4.

    A book that I rarely (if ever) see mentioned though is Richard Graves's Bushcraft. It was the first book written with the title Bushcraft (not to take anything away from Mors Kochanski -- his book is phenomenal as well) but I learned a lot from Richard Graves's book. Highly recommended. And can still be found on Amazon for five dollars!!

    I worked as a Backcountry Guide for a few years, and this book was always considered the Bible for folks in the industry. There's a LOT more to the book than just how to negotiate mountains.
