Ultimate Guide to Wilderness Living

Surviving with Nothing But Your Bare Hands and What You Find in the Woods

John & Geri McPherson


The Ultimate Guide to Wilderness Living provides in-depth instructions and step-by-step photos of real survival skills — exactly what one needs to stay alive in the woods.

The book first covers immediate needs like starting a fire, erecting temporary shelter, and finding edible plants. Then it goes beyond other survival books by explaining advanced techniques for long-term living in the wild — using only those things found in nature.

The authors show how to make tools by chipping stones, fashion a bow-and-arrow out of tree branches, weave baskets, fire primitive pots, build a semi-permanent shelter, and even tan hides. Finally, the authors explain how to bring all these skills together to live in the wilderness for days, weeks, months, or even years.
