Publisher's Summary

Survival situations often don't start off as such, like a day hike or a fishing trip. It is only when things go wrong that you are suddenly faced with a life-and-death survival situation. Therefore, you want to plan for the unexpected. Before you set off into the woods, take the time to go through all contingencies.

Disasters often don't come with advance notice, nor do they send you any early warning signs. So learning how to survive in the wilderness can truly save you and your family's life. After hiking, backpacking, and camping out for many years in 17 different countries, I have mastered the art of survival in the woods. Because I have done it for so long, I will tell you, it was a "learn as I go" process for me. But for you, it may not be that easy. Why, you may ask? What if a severe natural or man-made disaster happens suddenly? What if a war breaks out? Would you be ready?

I have been teaching hiking, camping, and backpacking for many years in many countries, but in the last three years, a group of people in Colombia asked me to teach them survival tactics in the woods. That question opened my mind and eyes wide; I know why they had asked me to teach them, but what if similar civil and or political unrest or war breaks out in our country? How many of us would be ready? More importantly how many of us would actually survive?

I believe every one of us needs to know at least the basics of wilderness survival like what bushcraft skills you need, what bushcraft gears and supplies you will require, and how to navigate yourself in the wilderness. Along with the knowledge, let's make a survival pack ready just in case. Once you do these two things (first gather the basic knowledge of survival, second get the emergency pack ready), I believe you will sleep better at night.

This is what you will master:

  • How to get started in bushcraft
  • Four survival basics in the woods
  • 10 bushcraft skills to master
  • Tips and tricks to bushcraft survival
  • Bushcraft tools and gears you need
  • How to find and treat water (source water from plants, trees, and underground)
  • How to find a prepare food (trapping, gathering, and cooking)
  • How to catch fish (bare hand, trotline, spearfishing, fish traps)
  • How to make snares and traps to catch animals
  • How to start a fire without lighters or matches
  • How to build both long and short term shelters
  • Bushcraft safety and emergency first aid (how to use medicinal herbs)
  • How to navigate your way around the wilderness (map- and compass-reading basics)
  • How to practice and get prepared for wilderness survival
  • Activities you can do in the woods
  • Money saving tips on bushcraft survival gear
  • List of items you need to take with you

All of this comes directly from my personal experience and not from Google search.

    "Bad information."

    Not only did I find that this book provided no detail to perform a single thing but even at a high view there were many things that are incorrect. There are three births not two. The shadow of a stick will always be north in the northern hemisphere not south. Etc.

    "Concise overview for beginner"

    I enjoyed listening to this book. It covers the basic and most important aspects of wilderness survival: finding water, food, and shelter. The author also points readers in the right direction for finding edible and medicinal plants. There is also a short list provided of items that folks new to bush crafting may want to consider taking along until they become more experienced at fulfilling needs from nature alone. The book was formatted nicely and the narrator's voice is very pleasant and contributed greatly to my enjoyment.

    I think a PDF of illustrations would make some directions much easier to understand and considering that this is a very basic overview of bush crafting, a suggested reading list would also be helpful.

    Overall, I think it is a great book for those who are interested in knowing what bush crafting is all about.
