Primitive Wilderness Living and Survival Skills
by John McPherson, Geri McPherson
"If I could carry only one book with me, knowing that my plane was going to crash in the wilderness, this would be the book." Rub two sticks together (the right sticks, the right way) and you can make fire. (Yes. It works.) Dig some clay out of the ground, prepare it, fire it and have a cooking vessel. Take weeds, fur, or bark and make rope. You get the idea. It's all here, written by two men who don't just teach it, they live it!
