How to Stay Alive in the Woods: A complete guide to food, shelter, and self-preservation that makes starvation in the wilderness next to impossible. Written by Bradford Angier; illustrated by Vena Angier. Basics covered in this book: Sustenance, Warmth, Orientation, and Safety. This is the ultimate guide to wilderness survival.
For over thirty years, sportsmen, hunters, and camping families have been carrying this book with them every time they venture into the woods. It is a life-saving tool that details all of nature's resources and shows—in twenty-six clearly written, illustrated chapters—how to find food, water, warmth, and shelter when lost or stranded.
The book is full of secrets that can help save time, energy, and even lives. It tells how to: spark a fire by using a drop of water as a lens; find you direction without a compass; obtain meat and fish by primitive means; and protect yourself against natural hazards. Using these tips and hints and natural ingenuity, Angier contends, it is possible for anyone to stay alive in the wilderness indefinitely.
