SAS Mountain & Arctic Survival

Two subjects of rightful popularity—survival and the military—come together in SAS Mountain & Arctic Survival (Skyhorse Publishing, $15) by former British Special Air Service soldier Barry Davies. This pocket-sized volume overflows with information on all types of survival skills, from fire- and shelter-building to finding game and preparing rescue signals—all with limited tools and equipment, and from the no-nonsense perspective of an 18-year veteran of an elite military unit. All in all, it’s an excellent overview and should be required reading for anyone who spends much time in the mountains of Montana. Available at Country Bookshelf.
