Should you feel adventurous, desperately wanting to escape the suburbia and head to unspoiled nature, leaving anything to do with civilization behind, we would advise you to first learn something about the skills you would need to survive in the backcountry. And here is a book that will teach you all you need to know about feeling comfortable and safe in the wilderness – Bushcraft 101: A Field Guide to the Art of Wilderness Survival.
We have featured a couple of survival books so far but what sets Bushcraft 101 apart is the fact that it is as comprehensive as it gets (it has an incredible 256 pages), it is beautifully and meticulously illustrated, and written by the man who really knows what he is talking about – Dave Cantebury. He is the co-owner at one of the top survival schools in the U.S. called the Pathfinder School in Ohio. Cantebury’s YouTube channel has over 200,000 subscribers while his video clips have been seen by over 34 million people so far.
The book – Bushcraft 101: A Field Guide to the Art of Wilderness Survival – is considered the ultimate guide for the great outdoors. It is based on 5C’s of survivability – covering, cutting tools, containers, cordages and combustion devices. Inside the book, you will find a wealth of information about collecting and preparing food, shielding yourself from the elements, making required tools and supplies, choosing the right items for your survival kit, and generally anything and everything you should know about bushcraft.
