If you live in the northern climes you are a fool not to get this book. If you live anywhere else it will still be invaluable! Really good thorough and easy to follow instructions on axemanship, knifecraft, fire-making, shelter building, cordage & rope, bark containers, working with birch, conifers, willows, moose and snow! A bestseller in Canada, with a cult following in the US.

Format: Paperback
After years of being an outdoor enthusiast, I have finally found a book that gives practical, well thought out, easy to follow explanations of techniques of survival and practical outdoor skills. All too often I have found that survival skills authors seem to simply lift a technique from a book written by someone else 20 years before. It doesn't seem to matter if it works or not, or whether the conditions have to be exactly right for it to work, they just paste it into their books. It has become obvious that most of the authors have never even tried many of the tecniques since the techniques they write about don't work or need such specific conditions to work that you never find the exact right conditions in which to use the techniques. This book is different.
Every single skill presented is detailed and clear. They have all worked for me in REAL conditions. It is obvious that the author has not only written about the skills, but has spent long hours LIVING the skills and perfecting them. There is advice and observations that I have found nowhere else, another good indication that the author has written from experience rather than from reading what other people have already written and regurgitating outdated or worthless knowledge (and knowledge that doesn't work becomes dangerous in the bush). His attention to detail (he even drew all the drawings in the book himself)and his great concern for safety in performance of the skills goes unmatched.
I would hardily recommend this book to anyone who wants to feel a little safer when they may be faced with an unexpected emergency, whether you are a backpacker, mountaineer, camper, outdoor enthusiast, or simply driving in your vehicle in a snow storm. This book could save your life one day, when you least expect it.

This is a great book for anyone wanting to learn bushcraft and survival skills. Mors Kochanski has broken the different aspects and skills down into simple stages, with easy to follow diagrams. I was particularly pleased to find that he uses non technical language to explain things. This book is full of useful information. A nice easy read and well worth the money.

i bought this book a year or two ago and ive read many a so-called book on wilderness survival but this one is definitely up there with the best. even though the illustrations are pencil drawings they easily get the point across. mors kochanski is reputed to be one of the finest bushcraft instructors in the northern hemisphere and this book does him proud. this book deals with skills that you really need like axe and knifecraft,shelter building and fire-lighting.this book doesnt teach you how to stay alive in jungle/desert which to be honest none of us are ever going to come in contact with during our lives! buy it now, you wont be disappointed!

Format: Paperback
I loved this book. I think there are several different kinds of bushcraft enthusiast. Some prefer hot climates, some broad leaf woods others pine forest. This book is ideal for people who prefer cold pine forest environments. A lot of the skills described can easily be transferred to other environments but it does cover some skills unique to pine forests. The only slight downside is that diagrams (although clearer in many ways) can lack a realism we expect from modern bushcraft manuals. Overall a good interesting reference to northern survival.

If you think Ray Mears has cornered the bushcraft market, think again. Ray knows his stuff and makes for good reading and practice, but Mors goes further. This book gets deeper into a wide range of essential bushcraft activities, and gives you more of the vital little details that make the difference between real success and a passable effort. His lovely little hand drawn diagrams are really valuable too. Read and enjoy.

The first reviewer has really said it all. I have also found that EVERYTHING in this book works. I have found myself in a few unexpected circumsatnces that have required the knowledge that this book taught me and I am here to write about it.
I hear the author of this book is writing another comprehensive and exhaustive book on the same subject. I will be first on line to pick it up if his first book is any indication of his knowledge, and I know it is.

A very sound book that teaches effectively if you read it carefully.

The illustrations are not a problem IMHO. I have learnt a huge amount from this book and am still doing so. I hope to go on learning for many more years. This summer I applied the lessons directly to my teaching at Scout camp.

I recommend this book as a way into Kochanski's teaching. Use it in conjunction with videos and YouTube and Google.
