Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

About the Author

Mike Pewtherer has been practicing and teaching wilderness living and survival skills for over 15 years. Coauthor of Wilderness Survival: Living Off the Land with the Clothes on Your Back and the Knife on Your Belt, he is founder of Woodland Ways, a company teaching wilderness survival, rites of passage, and living skills to youth and adults. He has taught in venues ranging from private high schools to conferences. Mike also teaches blacksmithing, tracking, woodwork, and ceramics. Mike has traveled widely and studied with native tribes in North America, Fiji, and Australia, and has acquired and practiced survival skills in military settings as a combat engineer, in Australia's Outback, and with various wilderness instructors across North America. He has also worked with the National Parks Service on the Wilderness Rescue Squad in numerous back-country settings, assisted on black bear studies, and worked as a hunter of feral hogs in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.
