In the video, Survival Lilly discusses the books she references for survival and bushcraft skills. These 8 books also give her subject ideas for her YouTube topics.
I know there are a lot of armchair preppers and survivalists: you can’t live in the wilderness in survival mode all the time … if at all.
But you can read and study books about what you should know, so that if the opportunity arrives–a camping trip for example–you can practice a variety of skill sets.
Here is the list of books Lilly uses and recommends, in no particular order:
1) Bushcraft by Mors Kochanski: a true bushcraft book with detailed drawings and discussions about shelters, tree-felling, feather sticks, safe knife-craft, etc.
2) Epic Survival by Matt Graham: not a survival manual, but the true story of Graham’s life of primitive living. An interesting read.
Have you collected or bookmarked of all the prepper DIY YouTube videos you’ve watched over the past couple of years? You have them all in one place, the same computer folder, right?
Well, after you watched these great preparedness “how-to” videos, you immediately tried these projects yourself. You built up an excellent set of do-it-yourself survival skills, correct?
You at least started a binder of detailed directions on how to to build a solar still, or how to prepare DIY MRE’s, or assemble a self-igniting fire starter, or how to build a belt pouch survival kit, or how to … ?
I hope you all did. I didn’t.
So I was glad to see Jim Cobb’s book Prepper’s Survival Hacks: 50 DIY Projects for Lifesaving Gear, Gadgets and Kits.
Author of at least eight preparedness books, Cobb in this “Survival Hacks” book details 50 do-it-yourself survival projects: the materials you need, and easy to follow step-by-step instructions.
The book has seven sections:
It’s an excellent resource for both the novice and advanced prepper.
