SPEAR Survival books

Self-sufficiency is a journey, thus, we recommend these survival books to speed you on your way. Current feature: Bounty Hunter 4/3

Knowledge is your most essential piece of gear, and it weighs nothing so carry a lot of it.

Some books are also highly recommended for courses, such as Dr. Mark Vorderbruggen’s “Idiots Guide to Foraging“. This is a great read before our Wild Edibles Courses!
