General & Misc

survival booksIn the classic novel about life after the apocalypse Lucifer’s Hammer, one of the survivors has a cache of books, survival books, how to books, technical manuals- in essence a compilation of our civilization buried in a septic tank against the coming end of the world as we know it.

While this may sound extreme to some, the gathering of information in a form we can keep and use should our infrastructure collapse around us is not a bad idea. That is pretty much the concept behind this website and many of the booklets and manuals in this section are those that would fall into the basic survival books idea.

While many of the booklets we have made available here on Ultimate Survival Skills are web-based documents, most of these could be the base of a survival books library that could be just as essential as the water, food and survival tools discussed in them.

In this section we have collected together some of the basic survival books that will probably best serve you for any type of emergency. While some of the booklets such as the one regarding Climate Change and it’s affects are intended to distribute the information in them as a basis for decisions and can be read online now for that purpose, others such as the one on Urban Search and Rescue Markings should be printed out and placed in with your emergency stash. Obviously this is when you would need that information most. The booklet on handling humanure is another that is best pre-read then printed and put aside as part of your survival library.

survival bookWe are extremely lucky to live in times when this valuable information can be disseminated through the internet, and we can reach out to others to help them accumulate that information.

Other sections that have booklets for your survival books library might be those on DIY boat building, Canning and Pickling and our Navigation Section. But then again, almost every section has something that could and should be part of your survival library.

The booklets here in this section can answer a number of important questions including:

  • What are the facts behind the theory of climate change?
  • What are the current risks of nuclear proliferation?
  • What is the proper way to display the flag for the United States of America?
  • How can one safely compost human manure?
  • What is the proper sign to display for search and rescue teams for victim location?

Libraries have long been the cornerstone to every civilization. These booklets and manuals may well be the cornerstone for the civilization to come. Even if it never happens, and everyone hopes it doesn’t, having this knowledge on hand in an age of specialization can never be a wrong decision. Knowledge will always have a power of its own.
