Synopses & Reviews
Honorary Chief of the Black Creek Cherokee of Florida, river-rafter, and backwoods guide, Willy Whitefeather has lived in the wilderness for many years. When he found almost all of the how-to-survive-in-the-woods books were written for grown-ups, he sat down and wrote this book for his grandchildren and for kids everywhere so they could learn how to "make it back safe".
From treating a bee sting to building an overnight shelter, kids will gain the knowledge and confidence they need to survive outdoors.
