Description

Product Description

HOW TO STAY ALIVE IN THE WOODS is a practical, readable-and potentially indispensable-manual for anyone venturing into the great outdoors.

Broken down into four essential sections, Sustenance, Warmth, Orientation and Safety, this enlightening guide reveals how to catch game without a gun, what plants to eat (full-color illustrations of these make identification simple), how to build a warm shelter, make clothing, protect yourself and signal for help. Detailed illustrations and expanded instructions, newly commissioned for this deluxe edition, offer crucial information at a glance, making How to Stay Alive in the Woods truly a lifesaver.

About the Author

Bradford Angier (1910 - 1997) was a wilderness survivalist and the author of numerous bestselling books on nature, survival, and living off the land. His writing is supplemented by text from noted survivalist and naturalist writers including Gregory J. Davenport, Christopher Nyerges, Jon Young, and Tiffany Morgan.

If you grew up hunting, fishing, and camping this is worthless. If you don''t know how to hunt or fish, it will be worse for you. (Lots of one sentence 5 star reviews makes me doubt these are legitimate reviews.) Who feels strongly enough about a book to write a review and then can only muster up one sentence? This book simply does not have enough detail for anyone. Each section is a few paragraphs.Here is the full advice on how to catch game birds without a gun:

"grouse promise feasts for anybody lost in the wilderness, especially as a few stones or sticks are often the only weapons needed to catch one. If one misses the first time, such foul usually will afford a second or even third chance to be captured."

Now you know that you can apparently kill a grouse by throwing a stone at it. I grew up hunting grouse and you won''t see one until you flush it out and it is flying away. You could try 1000 times and still not hit one with a stone. Even if you could get within 10 feet of a stationary target like a rabbit, it''s unlikely you could throw a stone hard enough and accurately enough to hit it.

The section on snares is more useful, but again, lacking in useful detail.

When I was a boy, sometime around 1975 or so, my parents brought me to Old Sturbridge Village. Afterwards, in the gift shop I saw this book. Somehow talked my old man into buying it for me. I read that book at least 50 times. I loved it.
Well it’s quite a few years later, but I just finished reading it again. Look, it’s not War and Peace and it’s not the greatest how to manual ever written.
It’s very dated and pretty simple. But it’s got some useful information. And it’s written with warmth and humor. If you’re serious about learning survival skills, check out Creek Stewart or Dave Canterbury.
If you want a nice, nostalgic look at living simply in the outdoors in a simpler time-I think you’ll enjoy this. I have many times for many years.
Thanks for reading
P.S.: don’t trust a review from anyone stupid enough to refer to capitalism as an “antiquated economic system “.

I bought this in hope that it would be a good guide to how to survive in the woods. What I got is the stream of consciousness ramblings of a woodsman. Are there some nuggets of wisdom? For sure, but the book is mainly vague ideas shared conversationally of what one might do. There is little truly step by step practical help that is stated clearly and would be easy to follow. Reading this book feels like getting cornered on the back porch at Thanksgiving by an eccentric relative as he rambles on about the good old days in the back 40.

An example would be that the author goes on a tangent about how a person cannot survive without vitamin C in the woods but then fails to list any sources of vitamin C that could be found in the wilderness.

Half the book is focused on sustenance but there are only a handful of traps and snares mentions with a single illustration per if you are lucky and most are outdated and inefficient.

Speaking practicality, I would not choose to be stranded in the woods with this book.

I wouldn''t even suggest this book for beginners today because there is much better information available today even on the internet and in other books. I found the Air Force Survival Handbook to be a much better resource filled with invaluable information that is presented plainly and clearly.

Reading this book takes me back to an era - sometime in the 1950s - when men were the only ones expected to experience the great outdoors with any sort of skill. Most of the survival tactics are still relevant, but there is definitely a lot of "let''s get after it, shall we, old chap?" language in there that is humorous at best, and dated/bordering on misogynistic and racist, at worst. However. If you can get past all that - and you should try - there is a wealth of information on "staying found," or the art of navigating strange and large places. There is also a helpful guide on which plants can be consumed and which are fatal to humans, materials to have for triaging wounds (both man-made and found in nature), and which type of wood is best to create and sustain fires that will keep you warm as you sleep. Of course, just reading this isn''t sufficient, but thanks to the structure of the writing, putting these skills into practice seems less daunting than other guides I''ve read.

This bookstore Anyone who treks into deep forests, hunts, or may need to separate from all society for awhile. WELL beyond simple survival tips/techniques, this book shows the wealth experience many people used regularly to live well with minimal or no in,teraction outside the deep wooded regions they inhabit. Evey aspect of daily life and all human expectations addressed and answers described which may face someone lost or banished to living away from society. I grew up hunting & trekkimg Wyomings primitive areas taught by native american warrior cast in woodsmanship. I felt I was as good and.knowledgeable as many, better than most in skills of a woodsman. This book had more information than I thought possible. PORING over Evey page to find all those amazing skills and how to apply each bit of knowledge to bettering my quality of life when most would have been helpless in every way. I believe this book to be the best " Survival " book I''ve read. And that is outof a whole lot of books! If you can not buy it get a copy thru library, borrow from a friend or relative, but do read this book! I bought 2 copies from Amazon! We should all know the books contents

A great read if you are into bushcraft or survivalism. I''d agree with some of the other comments about this being written for a different age, it misses out on some of the more modern methods and techniques and the utilisation of modern equipment. It''s also aimed at the American wilderness and not European environments. That said a great deal of it is still relative and useful and it''s a great read in front of the fire, though if you need a reference manual to have with you in the bush and rely completely upon I''d suggest using a more modern guide.
