Description

Learn the ancient skill sets our forebears used to survive and thrive in the wild—complete with step-by-step illustrations and easy-to-follow diagrams.

The act of bushcraft is the revival of skills widely known and practiced for centuries that use the resources found in the natural environment to survive. Although traditional bushcraft is mainly about wilderness survival, its focus on using the tools that already surround us can be applied to urban or suburban settings to serve as a practice for self-sufficiency and decreasing your footprint on Earth.
 
Learn these basic bushcraft survival skills and more:
  • Foraging
  • Tools (knives, axes, rope, etc.)
  • Trapping and Hunting Game
  • Water Purification
  • Shelter Building
  • Fire Building
