Top Customer Reviews
And, unlike a other survival books that try to throw in everything but the kitchen sink and attempt to be all things to all people, Stewart has only discussed what he feels is the most important elements to surviving in both the bush, and in an urban survival situation.
While the book touches on a number of aspects of survival, some of them unconventional, such as using a couple of cinder blocks in an urban environment as a backstop to a fire to radiate heat, the main emphasis of this book is as a Bug Out scenario.
So, for example if you want a survival book to discuss navigation and the use of a compass, you will not find it here.
Nor, for example does he touch upon the most important part of a bug out survival scenario, Clothing. Which I found rather interesting.
As any person interested in survival knows, the most important part of survival and the first line of defense in a survival situation, is the clothing on your back and your footwear.
But don't let these omissions deter you from buying the book, as his unconventional style and focus more than makes up for this.
So in conclusion, if you enjoy reading survival books like I do and want an excellent primer on a combination of urban and rural survival, this book is a must have.
In his new book Build the Perfect Bug Out Survival Skills, he blends urban and wilderness skills is such a clever and new way, it makes the book immediately valuable for the urban reader. For instance, he has a great idea for using a 55 gal drum as a fire reflector. Often times, you can find a drum torn up or in bad shape. Take that one and split down the side and stretched out a bit so it forms a wide letter 'C'. Then lay it on its side and build the fire right on the edge. Also, his idea for a rat snare using a twitch up and 4 inch pvc is absolutely the most shrewd trapping scheme I've seen in months. He also shows how to make an urban alarm on a door using a twitch up as well...brilliant!
Look, you need this book. Even if you're not in the woods, even if you're not a 'prepper', even if you just sit around all day waiting for the government to protect your family and take care of your family because you won't do the job God gave YOU....you need this book. And why? Because, if for no other reason, you need to see really sagacious ideas contrived to solve problems you didn't even know you had and might actually one day have to implement.
Well, his next book won't be in the 'Bug Out' series. It will be a stand alone volume entitled "The Noncon Pack". A term that Creek coined which means 'non-consumables'. This volume will deal with building a bag for the truely screwed, because you're not going to be back...ever. So, everything in that bag must allow you to make what you need not be what you need. That one may not even get to be printed but I really do think Creek's got the juice to make that deal even if he has to go vanity press and put it on Amazon himself.
a ton of actionable survival info. I have been studying / practicing survival skills for a while and was
pleased to find a number of techniques, ideas and skills that were new to me. Highly recommend...well
worth the price. BTW...add Dave Canterbury's BUSHCRAFT 101 book for a one, two knockout punch
to your acquired survival skills. This will give you plenty to work on if you put the information to practice.
