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). Shelter will protect you from the elements, water will keep you living for several weeks and fire will allow you to purify water, control your core temperature, cook or preserve food, signal for rescue and harden tools. This indispensable waterproof guide offers a common sense approach to obtaining each of these elements effectively and economically. Co-authored by noted survival expert and master woodsman Dave Canterbury, this is one of a 10-part series on survival skills. Made in the USA.
