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.
How to build certain types of fire ovens? More on knots. Natural fibers have different knotting qualities than commercial
Also, it has "non jungle" references where there should be something more pertinent to the environment.
