The unexpected is just that unexpected and if you were to get stranded would you know how to survive? I asked myself that question when I started reading this book and some of the information I knew and some I did not and when I finished I could honestly say that I might survive on what I already know and I might not.
Surviving doesn't just mean surviving if the apocalypse hits, it also means surviving through earthquakes, floods, fires, and of course Hurricanes and Tornado disasters as well. Those major disasters can leave you without potable water, electricity and other modern conveniences that you are used too. Knowing what to do and when to do it is important and that is just what Scott Graves and KnowIt Express do. In this book, they give you the information on how to survive some of those disasters.
There are some of us that think of the current survivalists as nut balls or crazies because they think that the end of the world is coming and want to be ready for it by stockpiling food and building their underground bunkers. Being a survivalist doesn't have to be just that it is much more. Someone that goes camping without an RV could be considered a survivalist because they are removing many of the modern conveniences.
The big thing that Survivalists what us to think about is if modern society wasn't here is how we could survive if it wasn't here. We have all seen the movies where someone is on a trip and gets stranded somewhere, whether it be an island or in a desolate place. You need to know how to protect yourself, stay alive and get to civilization so that you can let people know you and others with you are alive. This includes things like finding food, ensuring water is potable, how to start a fire without a lighter, and other important information. There was some information in here I didn't know and was glad to find out.
In closing, I would like to say that I would definitely suggest this book to friends and family as well as keeping a copy of this book with me at all times. I may print certain pages out and keep them with me just in case my electronic device loses power and I can't get it recharged somehow.
Chapter 2 lists possible dangers we could face: flood, fire, earthquake, or general major accident. We are then instructed on how to ready for such events – what items to have in the house, what food items to store, how to store them, etc. It includes lists as checklists that one could take to the store and pick up when convenient. Once the family is relocated into a wooded area the skills are introduced: starting a fire, setting up camp, acquiring water, finding food, and signaling for help. Following is an exercise to actually put your supply kit together. What good is talking about survival if we don’t do anything to prepare for it? The book actually advocates the practice of setting up a camp in the woods and giving the idea a dry run. Find out if you could actually survive.
The book concludes with practical “bushcraft” techniques. Bushcraft is the art of surviving by using your knowledge of nature and your surroundings. It gives very practical ideas that you could possible hear on any of those survival reality shows where contestants try to survive in the wild with only a few items. “Eat for fuel, not full” is a very practical statement. The idea is to survive, after all. Not thrive necessarily. Over all, the book is useful and above all it motivates you to think about preparing for a disaster. Most people think about it but this book actually shows you specifics on actually how to achieve it.
