EVERYTHING THERE IS TO KNOW ABOUT SURVIVING IN THE WILD

“During my first years of learning survival I took a course in survival and primitive earth skills taught by John and Geri McPherson. I was excited by their unbelievable passion and their intrinsic understanding of survival. Their teachings took me from understanding basic skills to a full-blown love for the ancient technologies that humans developed to survive. John and Geri are the real deal. They dont just teach this stuff, they live it. I loved the experience with them so much I came back a second time a few years later. Now that I have traveled the world as Survivorman—experiencing and filming survival in every ecosystem there is—I can sit back and watch my shows and see John and Geris teachings peek through in every situation. I have been able to understand survival because of John and Geri, and can highly recommend this book.”

--Les Stroud, AKA Survivorman

Packed with in-depth instruction and photos, Ultimate Guide to Wilderness Living teaches you the skills need to survive and live in the wild using only those things found in the woods. Learn how to:

•Ignite a fire with a two-stick hand drill

•Erect temporary and semi-permanent

Synopsis:

Forget reality TV stunts like eating bugs, the Ultimate Guide to Wilderness Living provides in-depth instructions and step-by-step photos of real survival skills—exactly what one needs to stay alive in the woods. The book first covers immediate needs like starting a fire, erecting temporary shelter, and finding edible plants. Then it goes beyond other survival books by explaining advanced techniques for long-term living in the wild — using only those things found in nature. The authors show how to make tools by chipping stones, fashion a bow-and-arrow out of tree branches, weave baskets, fire primitive pots, build a semi-permanent shelter, and even tan hides. Finally, the authors explain how to bring all these skills together to live in the wilderness for days, weeks, months, or even years.

About the Author

Married for over 20 years, John and Geri McPherson live on 46 acres of undeveloped land in the flinthills of Kansas. Everything man made on their property has been done by them. They have taught many members of the military Special Operations Forces including A-Teams, Rangers, and Seals. Twice a year, they run a special class on strictly primitive wilderness living and survival skills for instructors from the US Army's Special Warfare Command's S.E.R.E. survival school.
