More About the Author

Mors is widely known throughout North America and Europe for his extensive work in outdoor education, survival and wilderness living. His passion for the Northern Forest and his desire to learn everything about it has made him one of the worlds foremost authorities on Boreal wilderness skills and survival.

He popularized the term 'bushcraft' and coined the familiar saying "the more you know, the less you carry". Bushcraft, published in 1987, is a foremost text on that subject with the skills you really need to know, including Firecraft, Axe Use, The Bush Knife, Cordage, Shelter Concepts, Trees and Animals is evident that Mors is teaching from experience and knowledge.

Mors is truly the "Old Dog" of the forest being one of those unique individuals that not only knows his subject but is also able to teach what he knows.

A resident of Peers, Alberta, he is most familiar to outdoor enthusiasts of Northern and Central Alberta where he has lived and worked for the past 45 years. Kochanski was an outdoor education instructor at the University of Albert for 25 years.

He still participates in the intensive week long wilderness living/survival courses as a Master Instructor with Karamat Wilderness Ways.

Mors has been involved with the Junior Forest Warden Program for the last 30 years inspiring wardens and leaders. He received the JFW Lifetime Achievement Award in 2008.

The book that every woodsman should have written by the Gandalf of Bushcraft. This is comprehensive tome on shelters, bush tools, firemaking and more. The author even goes into research on fasting and what determines when you should live off the land or refrain. A true classic especially for those who teach outdoor skills or long-term wilderness living.

Mors Kochanski is one of the understated "dirt teachers" of this era. Since he specializes primarily in the further Northern regions, and COLD climate survival he has not received the widespread reputation of many others more diverse instructions. Still his life experience in the most inhospitable climes of the frozen North is the best available. His blending of modern materials with "old wisdom" puts him in a unique place between the die-hard traditionalist and the modern materials ultra-lite obsessed outdoors person. His idea for the "super shelter" combinations these two worlds all with one goal in mind- safest and most enjoyable enjoyment of the wilderness. Good read with Common Sense approach to getting away from modern "civilization".

If you live in a boreal forest area, this should be your bible. Even if you don't live in such an area you can learn from this book. There are years of firsthand woodlore knowledge gleaned from one of the most respected living legends of bushcraft compiled in one volume. Everything authored by Mors Kochanski should be studied by every student of bushcraft. I definitely and highly recommend this.

Straight up advice from someone who spent a lifetime ding it. Not theory--just practical application of tried and true techniques.

Very informative and practical. This is the second book I have read from this seasoned author who writes from hard earned experience. More detailed than the casual reader may want but if you spend significant time in the wilderness the information is priceless.
