    I was hoping for something a bit more useful and comprehensive coming from a magazine with the stature of “Field and Stream.” However, what the book amounts to is a series of more-or-less feasible solutions to a series of survival vignettes colorfully presented in somewhat random order. Certainly this is not a book you would pack in your bug-out bag. It probably is worth about an hour or two of reading on a rainy afternoon if you have nothing else to do. Probably though, a Boy Scout handbook from the mid 20th century would be more useful in the woods.

    Lots of usable info in this easy to read and entertaining book. Nice illustrations, easy to follow with the exception of at least one knot tying illustration that is incorrect (try them out at home before you need them in the outdoors!) This book is reprinted stuff that the author published in past Field and Stream issues gathered into a nice package that any outdoor enthusiast would appreciate and it is tough enough to be packed and used in the field! I have not tried all the suggested recipes in the book, but most of those tried are very tasty! This book would be a nice present for any novice or grizzled veteran of the outdoors!

    I read this book or section of the larger book, with open eyes. I have several survival manuals and have had some survival training and teach wilderness survival to Boy Scouts.

    The information presented is designed in my opinion to help someone who has never read a survival book or been in a situation needing to think own their own feet.

    While it is not the most comprehensive book on the subject, it would give you a chance. The size is right to pack in a day-bag or backpack or a small shoulder bag to have for reference.

    The time you need survival information is not the time to start reading a book.

    Buy it, read it , study it and hope you never have to use it.
