There are many diagrams with patterns and measurements to follow which are easy to duplicate. The techniques in this book would be excellent in teaching a survival class to youth or adults.
There are also many nature craft ideas coming from the Native American background. These ideas would do well in a cultural art class.
I have had the chance to see this book in a previous print which was very old. The newer version is quite like the old one and proves to be just as good.
Well, I'm ordering one for each of my Grand kids. I just wish they offered this in hardcover today.
Looking at the reviews I'm gonna guess that this review will get lots of negative feed back, but I'm not stating an opinion, I'm stating a fact. If you read this book and went out into the wild to survive for a short time, then you would probably be okay, but I'm telling you that if you spent the time to read current books on the same topic, then your knowledge base would render this book useless. One book really never truly does it all, and this book is no exception.
I enjoyed this book for it's classic value. But the author is only average(not a joy to read), the information is dated, and what information is given on any given topic is very small. I think the only topic that was done any justice was canoeing, lol. You cannot use the plant information, better look up every plant they mentioned online to see photos. I'll stop short and say that every topic should just be re-researched as the information that you can get is just way better elsewhere.
I do recommend you read this book though. If you are a part of the bush craft community, then you really should read it. A lot of people reference this book and you might be lost as to how they got there information.Read more ›

LOVE this book. Some of the language is not modern, and requires a look-up. Some materials need a modern, synthetic replacement. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
