I know that there are a lot of good survival manuals and books out there that cover a whole bunch of different topics. I think the one book that had the biggest impact on me as a kid (and now) is the Boy Scout Field Book. This book has it all, from map and compass instruction, wild plant identification, bridge building, fire making, first aid and yes - ice rescue. There's even a chapter on survival.
The book I have is copyrighted 1967 and was reprinted in 1973. If you keep a library of survival/prepper books this one is a must have....

You know, this is very interesting because my cousin had this in his room and when I used to stay with my grandparents I would read THIS BOOK! Also he had some army field manuals that I would read. If anything got me into survival, outdoors woodsman etc then it would be these type of books.

Here is one book that he used to have and I bought me a copy of it last summer:

I remember having this book when in scouts. It teaches you all the survival techniques that one would use and need. Of course it teaches you to be prepared as well...lol
