It turns out that "Bushcraft" published in 2014 is WORD FOR WORD THE SAME as "Northern Bushcraft" published in 1988. There are no changes to the text or illustrations in the body of the text. The only "update" is a 14 page supplement with color illustrations at the end of the book. I am sorry, but changing the title and copyright date with essentially no other changes to the book amounts to a "bait and switch." I do not blame Mors for this. He is now elderly. I blame the publisher.
The book is still an excellent treatment of bushcraft in the Canadian boreal forest, but it is the same book as Northern Bushcraft published in 1988. If you have access to Northern Bushcraft, you are better off spending your money on Mors small pamphlets and you may need to hunt around for these.
One significant deficiency of the "new" book "Bushcraft" is that there is no mention of any edible wild plants. These are covered in a seperate 32 page pamphlet written by Mors titled "21 Native Edible Wild Plants." Why he did not include this in his recent title "Bushcraft" is beyond me.
If you want to learn about Mors' "Super Shelter" concept, your best starting point is the following youtube videos:
1. "Harlton Hacienda" Karamat Wilderness Ways channel. Mors speaks in this video.
2. "The Harlton Hacienda" averageiowaguy channel. A must see video after watching #1
3. "Mors Kochanski Super Shelter" Karamat Wilderness Ways channel. Mors explains his super shelter concept.
4. "Super Shelter Modified for the Eastern Woodlands Parts 1 and 2" wildernessoutfitters channel.
5. "My SUPER Shelter Completed" Survival Lilly channel. A very solidly constructed long term adaptation of the Harlton Hacienda.
Again, I have only the utmost respect for Mors, who has spent the last 40 years teaching people how to survive in the Canadian boreal forest.
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.
I would not suggest this book as a survival text, but would as a supplement to other survival texts to enhance your outdoor skills or if you want to study primitive living skills.
If you are addicted to Survival skills, Bushcraft and the Outdoors as I am I would highly recommend this book.
