2.0 out of 5 stars Very cumbersome, but lots of information, August 12, 2008
This review is from: Survival Wisdom & Know How: Everything You Need to Know to Subsist in the Wilderness (Paperback)
This book has some good material in it and is inspirational for the novice outdoors-person. The material is all compiled from previous publications by the "Author", thus some bits included are rather useless and no insights are offered. A large section covers modern fishing techniques using lures and motor boats as well as other skills not relevant to true wilderness survival. Almost all of the material in this book is included more comprehensively in books I already have and I was unable to find anything "new and exciting". The book is very large, think large coffee table book (13.5 inches tall) and is poorly bound (I was given 2 copies and they both began to loose the cover and some pages within a month). Another book good for the survival library and fun to peruse, but contains little of real value (unless it is the only book you have).

I would LOVE to know the titles you are mentioning here. I hope you see this and reply! I always appreciate it when someone gives a referral about something that they have found, especially when they say it's better than the book being reviewed. Thanks.
