Synopsis

This is the ultimate guide to life-saving techniques. It helps you stay alive and healthy in the wilderness. It is a practical handbook on how to cope with all kinds of survival scenarios, with detailed visual instruction and step-by-step sequences for every situation. It features expert, easy-to-follow step-by-step advice on key life-preserving skills and techniques with 1001 tips and over 650 photographs and illustrations. It offers professional tuition from someone who has endured these situations, toughed it out mentally and physically, and can explain all you need to know to help you survive. It contains everything you need to know about survival, building shelters, wilderness navigation and rescue strategies, making fire, sourcing water, flint-napping, tracking and hunting for animals, foraging for food and much more. This ground-breaking guide to survival in the wild covers all the essential skills required to cope with whatever nature has to throw at you - from steamy jungle to frozen tundra and from barren mountainsides to dehydrating deserts. This is the ultimate instruction manual for mastering the art of mental and physical survival.

It explains every aspect of the four fundamental physical survival requirements of shelter, water, fire and food. Traditional wilderness skills are fully illustrated: making hunting tools and natural cordage, flint-napping, essential pottery and basketry, primitive and modern trapping and fishing techniques, plus practical wild food cooking. With over 650 illustrations, and 75 practical projects, this is the visual manual to surviving the wilderness and will appeal to the general public as well as more experienced explorers and adventurers.

Anthonio Akkermans runs Wild-Live, which teaches people how to live naturally and in harmony with nature and connect to the wilderness surrounding them. He has studied bushcraft from childhood and learnt native skills with Tom Brown's Tracker school in New Jersey.
