SHELTER, FIRE, WATER
Wilderness self-reliance skills from a seasoned survivalist. Well-known outdoor expert Dave Canterbury offers basic techniques and essential information for primitive wilderness survival in this new heavy-duty pocket guide series from Waterford Press. Perfect for throwing into an overnight pack or brushing up on skills before an expedition, these waterproof, rip-proof guides can be used on their own or in conjunction with one another, similar to the method used in Canterbury’s unprecedented Pathfinder System. Covering everything from what to include in a survival kit and improvised tracking techniques to signaling for rescue and building shelter, this collection is ideal for outdoor adventurers of any skill level and provides indispensable wilderness information for all situations. While in the wilderness, the three key elements needed for survival—specifically for mainting core body temperature necessary for life—are shelter, water, and fire. The most effective man-made and natural shelters for protection against the elements are included within, along with how to identify and utilize different fire types and, finally, how to collect and disinfect water sources in order to protect against waterborne viruses and pathogens.
