Book Description

Jan. 8 2013
When we think of jungles, we often think of a densely forested area with thick foliage; this is what is known as a primary jungle. But jungles can also include swamps, grasslands, and cultivated areas. Primary jungles can fall into the category of either a tropical rain forest or a deciduous forest, depending on the types of trees and plants found growing there. A tropical rain forest is typified by having tall trees whose upper branches interlock to form canopies. Yet of all the environments in which man has to survive, the jungle offers the best chance.

The SAS have operated in the jungle for years, sometimes staying in the forest for months at a time. They developed a technique whereby they had two sets of clothing, one for daytime use and one for night. Just before they went to sleep they would change from their wet clothing, which was normally hung under the shelter to dry out. In the morning they would change from their dry clothing and put on the wet. It is an uncomfortable change, but one that guaranteed a good night’s sleep in dry clothing.

The SAS Guide to Jungle Survival will teach the reader to come to terms with the jungle environment, understand it, and work with it as opposed to “fighting it.” The jungle forest can provide shelter, food, and water in abundance, and this book will show you how. If the jungle offers any problems, it is with disease and wild animals; The SAS Guide to Jungle Survival will show you how to avoid and resist both and come out alive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to find. Buy it when you see it. Aug. 17 2013

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was very hard for me to be able to find a took a number of months before I finally tracked a copy down. If you're interested in jungle survival for any reason I would strongly recommend that you purchase this book without hesitation when you come across one. With that being said, lets move on to the review.
I had spent some time in the jungles of Costa Rica on the Pacific side of the country a while back and was totally thrown off of my game. As a person who is fairly well versed in bushcraft and survival skills I found myself completely out of my element. Most of my traning has been in the Eastern Woodlands of OH, KY, TN, and WV. I wish I would have been able to study this book before hand.
While somethings in survival stay the same no matter where you are, you never realize how many of the skills you have are either rendered obsolete or need a great deal of modification. This book will help you be mentally ready and at least have an idea of what will be demanded of you physically.
As with most survival books it covers food, water, shelter, and fire. This book zooms in on those topics specific for survival in various types of jungle. You will also learn a great deal when it comes to the dangerous of being in jungle such as jungle rot, malaria, large predators, etc.
This book comes in a rectangular shape to easily fit into your pocket or in your backpack. If you're heading into the jungle do not leave this book at home. It just might save your life.
