Tyrex13 already posted this, but Molly got me this book for Christmas and I wanted to give it my recommendation. IMO, this book is well worth the money for anyone who wants to see what it would be like to survive what would most likely to happen here in the U.S. if we don't get a handle on our country's financial situation.

I've heard about that one. Its on my list as well. Currently, I am reading 'Survival' by Lt. Gen. Russel L. Honore. Kind of a good book.

Out of Captivity: Surviving 1,967 Days in the Colombian Jungle

http://www.amazon.com/dp/0061769525/...l_15z4y3233i_e

I really liked this book, it is a real life survival situation that could happen to anyone who travels to foreign countries. It was interesting to read how they managed the emotional aspect throughout the entire ordeal.

Can you imagine over 5 years in the jungle without modern medicine, real food, proper clothing, etc? It shows how much trauma a human can endure if his mind is in the right place. It also shows how low a human can stoop when they think throwing their morals out the door will get them something.

With all the new EOTWAWKI movies that touch on eating people, I think now is a good time to recommend the movie Ravenous. Enjoy

The Donner party failed at survival. Epic fail.

I know it was already mentioned but the book PATRIOTS by James Wesley, Rawles was indeed a great book. Like it was already said its a survival guide in disguise. Look forward to reading his other books.

Read the Out of the Ashes series quite awhile back. A good read is The Monkey Wrench Gang -Edward Abbey some interesting winching ideas in this book. x2 on Crow Killer, and Mountain Man by Vardis Fisher I recently saw a special on TV about dropping out of sight and/or changing identity called "Catch Me If You Can" very informative and current, this is not the movie, it was a one hour special on cable, discovery channel?
