Primitive Wilderness Living & Survival Skills,
Of the many books that I reviewed, this book has the best instructions for the primitive living skills most closely linked to your survival. If you were to purchase just one book on basic skills, I would buy this one, but each of the recommended books contains information not found in the others. The authors have practiced and lived what they teach for many years. Their book includes excellent sections on primitive tanning of hides, sinew preparation and sewing, bows and arrows, containers, utensils, tools, shelters, pottery, cordage, and fire making. Lacks information on edible plants, which is best found from a complete color illustrated field guide to edible plants for your particular area.
