The book covers all you'd ever want to know about the essentials of surviving in climates such as: the polar region, mountains, seashores, islands, tropical regions, or even at sea. Here's few of the many topics the book covers:
-food, what you can and can't eat
-animal tracking with numerous pics
-color pics of edible plants
-pictures of traps and how to trap things
-how to handle animals you've killed for food
-how to make a camp and various shelters
-knot tying pics
-color pics of medicinal plants
-picures of dangerous/poisonous critters
-things to have in a survival kit
A very handy resource for anybody who enjoys outdoor/wilderness activities, it's just a darn good thing to have around in case of emergencies- or even just to look at the pictures! Also recommend Treat Your Own Rotator Cuff if you have a shoulder problem that is interfering with your outdoor activities.
It is cramed with information and clear diagrams on everything you could every possibly want to know, from building a shelter and what plants you can eat to what to do if there's a Volcanic erruption! There's a reason why this book has sold so many copies worldwide, the reason is that all the information is tried and tested and you know it works, being ex-military myself I have used this to expand my knowledge.
It is important that once you have read sections to go out and try the techniques, shelter buiding, fire making, collecting plants and tasting them. Take it wit you on a camping trip and try out some of the things in the book.
As a prepper I consider this a must have bit of kit in your BOB, but remember to read it, absorb the knowledge and practice it before you need it.
If you need a tiny book to carry around to remind you of some basics, this is perfect. If you actually need to survival short to medium term, buy a couple of bushcraft books, a wilderness medical guide, and a more comprehensive survival guide, and carry it on a kindle with a tiny solar charger.
