Simply put, this is the best book in existence that has compiled under one cover all the skills that one would need to not only survive in the wilderness, but to live comfortably. Unlike many other complete! skills books, this one was written one chapter at a time as smaller books (ten) complete in themselves. They were written to teach the reader how-to ... and they do. If you read a chapter, you come away with not only an understanding of how-to do it, you will also understand the whys. Over 700 photographs, and some line drawings, illustrate step by step every skill presented.

We have spent a considerable portion of our lives in the learning of these skills, and some seven years writing them up. We well remember the physical pains that one goes through when applying some of these skills and the frustration that comes with not successfully completing them. All the little tips left out of other how-to's that we were attempting to learn from. Well, we put them here for you. This book will teach you how to accomplish these skills whether you want to learn them or not.From the Back Cover:
If you have been accustomed to reading books on wilderness skills that entertain you but fall short of actually teaching you how to accomplish the tasks and skills at hand, you are in for a pleasant surprise. The authors know of what they write - this is not a compilation of other authors' works nor a rehashing and perpetuation of myths. The McPhersons not only know their stuff but also how to present it.
