3 essential books rarely mentioned or studied

No Mercy: True Stories of Disaster, Survival and Brutality   
by Eleanor Learmonth and Jenny Tabakoff
A superb mix of psychology, history and storytelling, No Mercy investigates historical instances of survivors of disaster and asks, 'How far would you go to survive?' and 'Can we survive together?'  The latter being the key topic of value IMO.  This book introduced me to the two below.
Castaway On The Auckland Isles (1866)
The Private Journals Of Captain Thomas Musgrave
A Narrative Of The Wreck Of The 'Grafton' And Of The Escape Of The Crew After Twenty Months Suffering -.  A textbook example of how psychology and social interaction are critical to group success.  Compare with description of the survivors of Invercauld who were wrecked in the same time and place as described in No Mercy.  Available on line for free.
Wrecked On a Reef (1875)
by François Édouard Raynal.
This man is THE survival god.  This is Raynals account of the same events as described in Castaway on the Auckland isles.  If you want to really know ‘How to be successful’ in a post-SHTF world – this is the real deal.  Won’t tell you how to defend against the short term problem of the ravening hordes … but will equip you for the long grind that follows.  Available online for free.
