DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Many have died in the Australian bush who might have lived had they known the appropriate survival skills. Bushcraft covers all areas of survival and camping activities: making ropes and cords, building huts, camp craft, finding food and water, making maps, starting fires, tying knots, and fashioning hunting and trapping gear—virtually every technique required to stay alive in the woods. With over 400 black-and-white illustrations and photographs, this book explains how to make use of natural materials found locally in any area, conserving instead of destroying native flora and fauna. It describes many of the skills used by primitive man, adding to these the skills necessary for modern man’s survival, such as methods for determining time and direction. The author, who popularized the term “bushcraft,” claims its practice has many unexpected results. By developing adaptability and honing the five senses, it will also improve your self-esteem and your ability to overcome difficulties in everyday tasks. The practice of bushcraft encourages self-confidence and counters the narrowing influence of modern living by broadening your horizons. Bushcraft is a clear, accurate, and reliable resource for anyone who wishes to face nature on its own terms with just a knife and this book.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The Practical Bushcraft Survival Guide How to Find Food, Water, Shelter & Fire In The Wilderness and Survive 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 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 does it send you any early warning signs. So learning how to survive in the wilderness can truly save you and your family's life. After started 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, and I will tell you, it was a 'learn as I go' process for me. But for you, it may not be that easy. Why may you ask? What if there is 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 throughout many countries, but only within the last three years, a group of people in Columbia asked me to teach them survival tactics in the woods. That question opened my mind and eyes wide open; I knew 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 along with how to navigate yourself in the wilderness. This way if you ever need it, you will have the knowledge. Along with the knowledge, let's make a survival pack ready just in case. In that pack, we can put a few necessary gears, and few "must have."s. 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. At a Quick Glance This is What You Will Master after Reading: How to Get Started in Bushcraft 4 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 Underground) How to find a prepare food ( Trapping, Gathering & Cooking) How to Catch Fish (Bare hand, Trotline, Spearfishing, Fish Traps) How to make Snare, 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 Lastly, I know there are dozens of similar books out there, so you may ask why this one? Well, I practice what I preach. It took me years to learn, practice and perfect the skills that I shared here. So what you will read here comes directly from my personal experience and not from Google search. Let's get started...

Editor: Cornell University Press

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Camping or backpacking in winter is appealing for many who enjoy the serenity of wilderness settings without the crowds and bustle of the summer season. But as rewarding as they can be, these outings require special preparation and a different set of skills than are necessary at other times of the year. Snowfall can quickly cover one’s tracks and make orientation difficult. Hypothermia is insidious, and rapidly changing weather conditions can become treacherous, even life-threatening. In addition to those who are exploring the outdoors recreationally, there are also those who find themselves in unexpected winter survival situations. Each year, people become stranded in wilderness areas, and in most cases they are not equipped to face the challenge of spending an indefinite amount of time outside. Without sufficient gear or knowledge of how to improvise without it, injury or death is often the result. The development of some basic skills, however, can help avert such unfortunate outcomes. As the founder of the renowned nature awareness program Primitive Pursuits, Dave Hall has been practicing survival skills for more than twenty years and has amassed a comprehensive understanding of winter survival. By refining these skills, Dave has reached a point of understanding that is without peer. Through detailed explanations, illustrations, and personal anecdotes, Winter in the Wilderness imparts Dave’s knowledge to readers, who will learn to meet their most basic needs: making fire, creating shelter, obtaining safe drinking water, navigating terrain, and procuring sustenance. Winter in the Wilderness is a handbook for those who want to explore cold-weather camping and those who might find themselves in need of this critical information during an unexpected winter’s night out. Whether used for pleasure or for survival, Winter in the Wilderness emphasizes the benefits of enriching and deepening our connection with the outdoors.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

ÊIf my present reader happens to be a Boy Scout or a scout-master who wants the scouts to build a tower for exhibition purposes, he can do so by following the directions here given, but if there is real necessity for haste in the erection of this tower, of course we cannot build one as tall as we might where we have more time. With a small tower all the joints may be quickly lashed together with strong, heavy twine, rope, or even wire; and in the wilderness it will probably be necessary to bind the joints with pliable roots, or cordage made of bark or withes; but as this is not a book on woodcraft we will suppose that the reader has secured the proper material for fastening the joints of the frame of this signal-tower and he must now shoulder his axe and go to the woods in order to secure the necessary timber. First let him cut eight straight polesÑthat is, as straight as he can find them. These poles should be about four and one half inches in diameter at their base and sixteen and one half feet long. After all the branches are trimmed off the poles, cut four more sticks each nine feet long and two and a half or three inches in diameter at the base; when these are trimmed into shape one will need twenty six or seven more stout sticks each four and one half feet long for braces and for flooring for the platform.
