An essential guide to everything you need to stay sheltered, fed, healthy, and safe in the backcountry
Organized around the six essentials of survival (shelter, water, food, fire, comfort and health, and navigation), Wilderness Survival Handbook covers 100 skills and techniques, including preserving fire, building pit shelters, toolmaking, stoneboiling cookery, and trapping and hunting animals with handmade tools and weapons. By mastering these skills, you will be able to survive with few tools or provisions in any wilderness setting–forest, plain, desert, or tundra–in nearly any part of the world.
