This May Be the Best Book on Survival in Years

In a recent issue of “Reader’s Digest” they recommended a book on survival called Survive! By Les Stroud. It’s popular and receiving very good reviews. One survival school instructor says it may be the best book on survival in years.

Here’s description info about this 384 page paperback.


“From the sun-scorched sands of the Kalahari to the snake-infested jungles of the Amazon, Les Stroud has made a life of surviving in the harshest—and most remote regions on Earth. Now, the creator, producer, and host of the hit television program ‘Survivorman’ transfers his decades of knowledge and experience to the pages of Survive!, a practical guide that gives everyday readers a no-nonsense look at the real world of survival.

“Stroud offers readers the essential skills and tactics necessary to endure in any corner of the globe, along with a wealth of insider information born of his own experiences in the outdoors and unavailable in any other book. Readers will learn:

* How to make a survival shelter and why a lean-to is largely a waste of time.
* Why survival kits are important, and why you should make your own. Where to find water and why drinking contaminated water is sometimes warranted.
* How to locate and trap small animals and why the notion of tracking and hunting large game is largely a pipe dream.

“Whether seasoned in the outdoor arts or new to adventuring, all readers will learn something from Survive!. Stroud’s many colorful anecdotes and cut-to-the-chase philosophy not only make for an entertaining read, but also enhance anyone’s ability to focus on the main goal when everything else has gone wrong—survival.”
