    “Bradford Angier might well call himself ‘The Master Backwoodsman.’” -Field & Stream

    Basic Wilderness Survival Skills is a comprehensive handbook for people who want to live a little closer to nature—people who, if only for brief intervals, feel inclined to leave civilization behind and experience a simpler, less-pressured lifestyle. The skills described in this book are both practical and fun—they represent a relaxing hobby as well as potentially life-saving information for wilderness or disaster survival.

    Basic Wilderness Survival Skills comprises a broad section of field-tested skills, presented in easy-to-follow instructions. Both novice and expert outdoor enthusiasts can master Angier’s techniques—from choosing the appropriate camping gear to building a fire without matches, from identifying wild plants to paddling a canoe, and from determining direction by the sun to navigating with a compass. This useful guide covers essential survival skills such as staying warm in blizzard conditions, purifying drinking water, and building emergency shelters, as well as fascinating tidbits such as improvising sunglasses and cracking a coconut without a tool.

    Basic Wilderness Survival Skills is the perfect reference for the student who has just discovered an interest in primitive skills, the instructor searching for time-tested methods, the hunter or fisherman who enjoys all outdoor activities, or the hobbyist who prides himself on new discoveries. Whether you take day hikes on weekends or spend months in the woods, here is everything you need to know to enjoy—and survive—the great outdoors.

    ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Bradford Angier was one of America’s leading outdoorsmen. He was born in Boston and worked as a newspaperman, but he left the bustle of the East Coast behind in favor of a self-sufficient existence along the Peace River in British Columbia and, in later years, in the Arizona desert. The author of more than thirty books, Angier’s livelihood was sharing his secrets of successful outdoor living, camping, and hiking with hundreds of thousands of readers.
