Format: Paperback
I bought this book to learn survival techniques to prepare for the impending Zombie Apocalypse. My plan is to head to the woods to avoid the hoards. Since I'm a city slicker, I don't know much about building shelters or purifying water etc. This book covers every topic in enough detail to understand the concepts clearly while still keeping it simple and quick to learn. The illustrations are engaging like old field manuals. The book is large, too large to carry in a backpack but not large enough to knock down a zombie.

Format: Paperback
this book has almost to much knowledge, and is made in a way that a non experienced person could understand, some things are almost to simple said. this book covers the most amount of detail and topics for survival and bush-craft, anything and everything is in here. downside the book is physically huge. its by far the largest book i have for survival, you would not be able to pack this with you. should have went with more pages not big pages.

Format: Paperback
When the book arrived, I thought it would be slightly larger than the normal reading book, but this was absolutely HUGE! Too big to take in a back pack. However, the information in there is amazing. Tons of real good tips and show-you's how to make things work in a difficult situation. Well worth the read!

Format: Paperback
There is literally so much in this book, that I have only just scratched the surface in terms of reading it.

there are lots of excellent tips and diagrams too.
The only draw backs are that the size of the book is HUGE, So you would never want to take this out in the bush with you. Also if you already own the Country Living wisdom and Know How book, then you already have more than half of the information in this book. Both are very similar.

This should be a standard in everyone's home. It's a real back to basic's book which is great for camping and/or preparing for any potential natural disasters. Plus there is a lot of great information that we in the 21st century really do not know how to do anymore and we really should.
