Bushcraft 101: A Field Guide to the Art of Wilderness Survival by Dave Canterbury
Picked this up today. Written by Dave Canterbury. Say what you want to about ole' Dave, but the dude is a nightmarish Beast Infection when it comes to anything WOODS. I'll take his advice any day of the week. I mean come on, who wouldn't take advice from a guy who knapped an arrowhead out of an old beer bottle, used aforementioned knapped glass arrowhead to attach to an handmade arrow, that was then used in a made on the fly bow to kill a wild turkey so he'd have fresh meat for the evening? Based on the 5Cs of Survivability--cutting tools, covering, combustion devices, containers, and cordages--this valuable guide offers only the most important survival skills to help you craft resources from your surroundings and truly experience the beauty and thrill of the wilderness.
The dude has his shit together. Bet on it.
Like I say, brush up or get mopped up. Your call.
