Items all arrived in undamaged packaging with other things. From feedback, my brother loved everything. I asked later if he's getting any use from it and he enthusiastically confirmed he was and has been adding to it, even sat down and made an emergency prep plan list. I picked up the stun gun flashlight and he carries that thing around in his pocket.
Wonder what he's getting me now for MY birthday!! Eh??
The Pros: Mr. Wiseman experience really shows in areas of edible plants and animals. He goes as so far as to explain taste and texture. There were moments when I was reading about eating for survival that it sounded better than what I was eating for dinner. The book is well separated in topics. The author goes out of his way stating that just reading his book will not make you a survivalist. He suggests you go out and try these skills…practice makes perfect.
The Cons: There are several times I had to Google a word because what British call something is not what Americans call it or I was too stupid to know what it was. Also there are sections that are rushed and leaves the reader wonder what else to do from there. Although the sections of the poisonous animals are well illustrated, I feel they are not needed but this is my own personal opinion. I would have liked the Camp Craft and Traps and Knots section (especially) to be more in depth. I would have like to see multiple angles of the traps set and what each are best for. Again this is just my personal preference. The Case studies weren’t really helpful. They did not add the value of the book.
Overall it is a great book to get started in for the being a survivalist, a camper, a naturalist, etc. It’s an easy read so young teens would enjoy it too. There is a lot of good information in this book. It’s definitely one to add to your collection.
We live in an area known as "tornado alley". We also have springtime floods and winter snowstorms that could possibly leave my family without shelter, food, heat or medical help. When I saw what happened during Hurricane Katrina, I wanted to make sure my family wouldn't suffer because I left them unprepared.
This book not only teaches you what to keep in your GOOD (get out of Dodge) BAG, but also has chapters on First Aid and what items to keep for emergency use and what kind of plants you can and cannot eat to survive outdoors. The author also includes how to survive in any climate and living in the midwest, we have just about any climate you can imagine throughout the year. After reading this book and preparing, I finally put it in my bag - just in case.
