This is the best survival handbook for quick referance. If you want to take 5 minutes trying to look up one paragragh, The U.S. Army survival handbook is for you. Otherwise, this is an excellent training book. I plan to try to live in the woods for about a couple months. This really helped me prepare. I already tried when I was young. But I came back crying after a week and a half. Now I plan to stay longer, beacause of this. This book includes all the basics of survival. I'm sure there are more detailed ones, but they don't have the basics. This is not really good for a reading book, but it is good for reaserch, as well as training. If you want a good book to live off of the land,this is for you.

This book is written by someone who really knows how to survive. McManners gives detailed information on the most basic survival techniques and shows the reader how to live in the wild. Being compact, it will remain in my pack as I travel.

This book was a great souce of information including great illistrations on all sorts of important matters ranging from emergency first aid to what to wear and pack. I was humored but greatfull for the section on how to find, and eat insects in a survival situation. Besides being a good book for the camping family, it could be very resourcefull in the event that Y2K problems such as power and water loss occur.

This book is very good in that it shows exactly how to survive in the wild with illustrations, not just words. In fact, the book is full of illustrations covering everything from lashing to building shelters to catching fish--and more, showing exactly how it's done with illustrations and photographs along the way.
