Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Trained soldiers will tell you that the art of survival relies heavily on two essential skills: finding food and finding water. In any survival situation, it is vital that you adapt to your surroundings as quickly as possible and make good use of the sustenance nature has to offer.
 
Living Off the Land contains everything the survivor needs to know about thriving in nature, from making tools and finding water to eating plants and catching fish. With over 120 illustrations, this book is packed with practical information and insightful tips such as how to make a fire without the use of matches and how to master the art of making traps and snares to capture food. Later chapters adapt these principles to a variety of terrain, including the desert, the Arctic, and the jungle, with special chapters devoted to survival at sea and urban survival.
 
Because nature can be a dangerous place, the book also instructs the reader how to identify and avoid dangerous animals such as snakes and spiders, how to extract poison, and how to tell edible plants and fungi from poisonous ones.
 
This book will be an invaluable help to anyone who ventures into the outdoors. The information it contains might just save your life.
