Shelter, Fire, Water: A Waterproof Pocket Guide to Three Key Elements for Survival (Pathfinders Outdoor Survival Guide)by Dave Canterbury
Synopses & Reviews
Well-known outdoor expert Dave Canterbury offers basic techniques and essential information for primitive wilderness survival in this new heavy-duty pocket guide series from Waterford Press. Perfect for throwing into an overnight pack or brushing up on skills before an expedition, these waterproof, rip-proof guides can be used on their own or in conjunction with one another, similar to the method used in Canterburys unprecedented Pathfinder System. Covering everything from what to include in a survival kit and improvised tracking techniques to signaling for rescue and building shelter, this collection is ideal for outdoor adventurers of any skill level and provides indispensable wilderness information for all situations.
While in the wilderness, the three key elements needed for survival—specifically for mainting core body temperature necessary for life—are shelter, water, and fire. The most effective man-made and natural shelters for protection against the elements are included within, along with how to identify and utilize different fire types and, finally, how to collect and disinfect water sources in order to protect against waterborne viruses and pathogens.
Shelter, fire and water are the three keys to survival and maintaining your "core temperature control" (CTC). This indispensable guide shows how to create and use each of these elements most effectively and economically, while keeping the next stage or steps clearly in focus, a forgotten — yet critical — component of many scenarios. Co-authored by noted survival expert and woodsman Dave Canterbury, this is one of a 10-part series on survival skills.
