- The Ultimate Survival Manual is divided into three major sections — Wilderness, Urban, and Disaster — covering 333 survival topics in brief, easy to understand segments. If you want to know how to survive an alligator attack, when the beast has grabbed you and dragged you to the bottom of the swamp for a death roll, that's #48. Or how to survive a home invasion (#253) or a hostage situation (#292). Or survive a wildfire (#160). This book's got it all. Number 40 tells you how to tell a black bear from a grizzly — important knowledge, because they respond differently to a human encounter, and what you do next can mean the difference between a happy ending … or not.
- Rich Johnson's Guide to Wilderness Survival. This book is written in traditional chapter format with in-depth information about all the most important wilderness survival subjects — from the psychology of survival to how to forecast the weather, to building fires and shelters, to hunting and trapping for food. There are chapters to guide you through the most common wilderness medical emergencies, how to navigate your way to safety, signal for rescue, and what kind of equipment to choose for your outdoor adventure. This one is a "must have" book for anyone who loves the backcountry.
