My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a very good and interesting book, one of many things that I have been reading for researching the stories I write. The text is well written and easy to follow, and there are a lot of diagrams and photos throughout. The author discusses many survival situations, types of knives, how to shop for knives, and how to use them to build everything from fires and traps, to housing and boats. There are also chapters in here about proper ax usage and first aid. While I haven’t tried to put any of this information to the test yet, there were some things discussed that I already knew, so I feel this would be a great addition to the library of anyone interested in the outdoors… especially up here in Maine where we have so much of it.
