Publisher Comments:

Cody Lundin, director of the Aboriginal Living Skills School in Prescott, Arizona, shares his own brand of wilderness wisdom in this highly anticipated new book on commonsense, modern survival skills for the backcountry, the backyard, or the highway. This is the ultimate book on how to stay alive-based on the principal of keeping the body's core temperature at a lively 98.6 degrees.

In his entertaining and informative style, Cody stresses that a human can live without food for weeks and without water for about three days or so. But if the body's core temperature dips much below or above the 98.6 degree mark, a person can literally die within hours. It is a concept that many don't take seriously or even consider, but knowing what to do to maintain a safe core temperature when lost in a blizzard or in the desert could save your life. Lundin delivers the message with wit, rebellious humor, and plenty of backcountry expertise.

Watch naturalist Cody Lundin on Dual Survival as he uses many of the same skills and techniques taught in his book: 98.6 Degrees: The Art of Keeping Your Ass Alive.

Not the ultimate in outdoor survival books but it does give you full, no BS details on how to stay alive in the woods long enough to get rescued or out on your own within 72 hours.

It also stays away from being dry:

there are 3 ways to make a fire...
here are 3 types of shelters...
water...
yadda yadda...

Or full of BS:

Hi, I'm Ben Dylls! To cover 10 miles quickly, jump into a river and float down it!! Then eat raw fresh water fish!!! My pants are off and I'm ruggedly handsome!!!!!!

Well, Cody Lundin is handsome I guess.

He has found the line of being entertaining while still very descriptive of why one will die if you get to hot or cold and what you need to do to prevent that. I'm an experienced outdoorsy type guy and I learned something from this book - basically to get back to basics and have a good attitude.
