Should be required reading for everyone!
Make sure that you, your friends and family have this important and useful knowledge so that life is a little easier, a little safer, and perhaps even a little longer.
The verdict? The other day he walks up to my wife while were on a walk and says "Mom, I need a button". A button? "Yea, a button, the book says when you are thirsty and don't have any water if you suck on a button it will quench your thirst". Rock on!
Which prompted me to flip through the book. This thing is incredible. While it is a kids book, it has some seriously advanced techniques and great ideas. I have done tons of wilderness classes but it broke down even the more advanced topics (like navigating out of a swamp) down into easily digestible points and, I will admit, I even learned a few things. Like if you are in a swamp, drop a large leaf into the water, it will gradually float downstream and toward the coast. That way lies (most likely) your best exit. Seriously cool. Perfect 7-12 year old gift.
P.S. If your kid asks for a syringe and alcohol - say no. There is one page on needle decompression. :)
