      Comments about Outdoor Survival - How to Stay Alive in the Woods:

      I'm a normal old grandmother with a cell phone, computer and other gadgets, but I can't clean a chicken/bird/fish like my Mother. One of these days, technology will cease, at least for a few days, and Americans will be stuck, not knowing how to survive. I want this book in my purse!

        I bought this for my boyfriend who is an advid outdoors man, and he loves this book! He has learned a few new thing and also already knew some things, but loves it all the same. He is very impressed with the texture and sturdiness of the cover.

                Comments about Outdoor Survival - How to Stay Alive in the Woods:

                So simplistic it is almost of no value. Some of his "tips" are absurd.
                A total waste of money. The ONLY good thing about this book is its almost indestructable cover - but then, after reading it, I wanted to destroy it.
                It went in the trash.

                The rubber cover is cool.
                It's informative as to what needs to be done for survival but not so great with actual
                "How to".

                      Great reference book. What would you do if you were without food, shelter, warmth, and much much more! This book is packed full of information that I will hopefully never need!!
