This book was obviously written especially for survivalists and retreaters in the typical Ragnar Benson style. It offers very practical views on survival and living in the wild. Ragnar Benson makes a very important distinction between "Realist Survivalists" (like most of us) and "Purist survivalists" (who will mostly die off). Being a purist is fine for camping and short weekends, but when TSHTF, you want EVERY advantage you can muster on your side... enter realism! This books gives the "how-to's" and lessons learned from old Indian secrets and even advice on survival medicine, caching, firearms, preserving food, diesel power generation and LOTS more. Interesting stories and ancedotes about the wildman of the clearwater, and the Nez Perce Indians story make this book entertaining as well as informative.
