Wilderness Living & Survival Skills
by John McPherson, Geri McPherson
5 Star Rating for this book! It is an excellent resource for living and surviving in the wilderness. More than simply a survival manual this book teaches some excellent skills for living in the bush as well. Also check out "Primitive Wilderness Skills, Applied & Advanced" by the same author where he takes you further explaining about the life threatening hantavirus found in the woods in addition to teaching skills such as - wilderness nutrition - brain tanning robes & furs - building a 20 foot long dugout canoe done with only stone tools. Both books are an excellent resource for the outdoor enthusiast.
