About the Author

Mors Kochanski is known throughout North America for his extensive work in outdoor education, survival and wilderness living. His enthusiasm for wilderness recreation, his extensive knowledge of the field, and his desire to learn everything there is to know about the wilderness has made him one of the foremost authorities on wilderness skills. Mors Kochanski has been an outdoor educator and survival instructor for over 40 years, twenty three of which as a sessional professor for the University of Alberta; a few months of which were at the Canadian Department of National Defense Survival School at Jarvis Lake, Alberta. For many years Mors instructed courses at the Blue Lake Centre run by the Alberta Department of Culture Youth and Recreation, and finally 17 years for the School District 59, at Dawson Creek, British Columbia to the benefit of thousands of elementary school children. All the while, this tireless scholar did copious research, freelanced as an instructor, and wrote numerous magazine articles for Alberta Wilderness Arts and Recreation Magazine, various popular aid-memoir booklets and the instant classic “Northern Bushcraft” (now known as Bushcraft). This is just a handful of Mors’ outdoor education accomplishments to preface his new book that is published by Karamat Wilderness Ways. Today, if a course or instructor has any solid foundation in modern survival skills or Bushcraft, the odds are that they are likely based on a teaching, a skill or idea that Mors had some input in developing – whether they know it or not.

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".

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.

This overview of how to prepare and survive in this book is the best I have ever seen (many years of reading up on how to survive if necessary).

The detail is unique down to the art of how to sharpen and chose knives and tools that will be needed in these situations of survival. (just one of thousands of useful bits of information in this easy read)

This should be required reading for all High school age young men and woman that truly want to be independent in their lives no matter what the circumstances are.

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.

Great information if you ever need it. It's a bit boring on the writing but you will learn. Just takes a bit of effort to get through. Regardless Mors is THE Boreal Survival expert, I would never doubt that for a moment.

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.

Mors Kochanski is my current bush craft teacher through his written words. I have all three of his books, and I am putting his words to work in the field.
