Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

 

Useful items needed for short-term situations, such as cordage, containers, fire, or fish poison, as well as plants that address everyday ailments experienced by routine backpackers are included in this handy portable reference to plants found east of the Mississippi River.

Synopsis:

Many plants contained in this useful reference guide can be used to counteract common every-day ailments such as an upset stomach or headache. In addition, we highlight plants that can be used to create survival items like rope and fire, and useful items like containers for gathering food and an age-old native fishing technique. Co-authored by noted survival expert and woodsman Dave Canterbury, this is one of a 10-part series on survival skills.
