    The “helps” in the book are NOT long-winded, but are short and to the point.
    There is enough information along with the drawings to be able to try out the advice given in the book.
    ONE THING IS VERY IMPORTANT. DO NOT take this book out on a trip and expect to be able to do everything in it without trying it out first. [This is advice I would give with ANY book about survival.]
    You need to try out these suggestions and techniques first in “your back yard.” In the wilderness when an emergency is upon you is NOT the time to try out something new.

    Everyone has their own opinion on books like this one. Me? It taught me plenty of survival tips and techniques that I didn’t know. The explanations were straight forward and easy to understand and absorb. I would hope that I never have to use most of what is in here but I sure feel more comfortable venturing into the wilderness after having read through this book and going back to specific sections that interested me. Of course, the real way to learn these techniques is to actually plan to practice a few of them each time you go backpacking, camping or maybe just on a day hike. It breaks up the monotony and when two or three of you are into doing this it’s a fun way to wind down after a long (or not so long) hike.

    I’d recommend this book!

    Solid information, great diagrams, good advice. If you are a prepper or just someone who is looking to become more proficient in wilderness craft…this is a must have. Can be read and retained…or used as a reference. Good buy…
