The book will show the you how to get food, water, shelter in areas you did not consider before. It will teach you about weather patterns, electricity, trap food, start a fire, and water shed. Don’t think you need to know about this stuff, well try lapping up some of the “mystery water” on the street in NYC and see how far you get before vomiting or worse. Then tell me the information is not valuable. There is even a chapter on edible plants. Did you know that many wild plants even in a suburban or urban environment provide MORE nutritional value than store bought vegetables?
This book takes into account the basic human need to survive. You can live three days without water, wouldn’t it be nice to know how to distill it on the streets so that you can survive longer than three days without it?
I personally believe this book is a great resource. I keep a copy of it in my backpack for business travel now so that I have a quick reference in the event something happens and I am in my own SHTF situation…
Tom Brown runs his Tracker School here in NJ. I first heard of him while reading Neil Strauss’s Emergency: This Book Can Save Your Life.
