  1. Sure, this book claims to teaches you how to do a a lot of things to survive, except one thing: it doesn’t teach you how to string up a log into the trees, so that when someone walks by and unwittingly pulls a trigger, the log comes swinging down and crushes them – like what Arnold Schwarzenegger did to Predator. I haven’t yet figured out how a single person can do this, unless you’re using a complex lever and pulley system. Anyways, you’ve really got to fortify some kind of defense if you want to survive, and at least encircle your lair with punji pits.

  4. I learned A LOT from his books, they offered a tremendous wealth of information for any wilderness enthusiast. It teaches you how to skin a deer, preserve the meat, build a shelter, start fires, and much more.

    However, the book could have added more depth. They only covered certain chapters with a page and barely discussed certain topics.

  5. This is a great book, a lot of good and useful skills in it.I find the water procurement chapter rather incomplete and because water procurement is of such high priority in the wilderness I don’t see why he shared so little about it. He doesn’t tell you how to build solar stills and other very important skills.

    However most wilderness books leave something out so be prepared to do some research no matter what book you buy. I highly recommend this one.
