It was a present for my son and he loves it. He finds it interesting and it is the king of book he is going to have with, when he goes camping.

my 13 year old son loves this. It's easy to read, with great pictures to explain things even better. A good stocking filler!

HASH(0x98fbd9cc) out of 5 stars Great guide to things everyone should know! 8 Jun. 2011
By Dale L. Larson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
From daily life to emergencies, around town to out in the backcountry, this book is filled with reminders and new information on all the things you should know to survive and thrive (and to help others to). Short and simple, more pictures than words, easy for anyone to digest and review. Beginners will find it a great place to start, and even experts will find it fun and useful (I'm trained in wilderness survival medicine, as a rescue diver, and more).
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.

HASH(0x98f8e198) out of 5 stars Perfect for a boy scout 26 Sept. 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My grandkids loved this book as they think they are learning how to survive. It contains how to survive in the modern word like what to do when threatened by a strange dog, how to tell time by the sun, etc. Grand daughter was the first to read it through and pointed out stuff to me.

By shechrissy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this book intended as a Christmas gift for my children's father and grandfather. After glancing through it, I ordered another copy for our 7 year old son. It might not be a realistic read for an avid outdoorsman who regularly watches Survivorman, but it's great for the average joe and his kids! I would definitely recommend it to city folk and youngsters, as it is very easy to read and understand. However, if you're a backwoods boy who already lives off the land, you might want to look elsewhere for new information. All in all, there was a lot of information or different tricks and techniques I wasn't aware of contained in this book.
HASH(0x9907fd14) out of 5 stars This is a SUPER COOL book! 14 July 2013
By MonkezUncle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
So we bought this for our 7 year old as he is starting to really enjoy the outdoors, boy things, etc. Thought it would be a cool resource that was fun and educational. As others have noted, it uses pictures, primarily to communicate the concepts. So even though he can read, it's easy to follow.

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. :)
