I took a day class taught by a student of Tom Brown, and learned so much about wilderness survival in just a couple of hours that I had to go chase this book down. It has held a permanent place next to the nature books on my shelf ever since. Not only can you take it outside and stay busy for days constructing simple traps and shelters, but thanks to Tom Brown's interesting anecdotes it makes for fine reading while simply sitting in your comfy chair with a cup of hot cocoa! I'll probably never need to build an emergency snow cave or collect water in the desert or make rope from grass...although it gives me a nice smug feeling that I know how if I ever need to! Note - Making a fire with sticks? Much harder than it looks!
