   I'm not sure that I've learned anything in the skill department but I do enjoy reading this to people to make them laugh
He also quipped that if you think dry humor is bad, you're wrong. I'm not sure that I've learned anything in the skill department, but I do enjoy reading this to people to make them laugh, Sasquatch said. Like the Beatles, Angier has a way with words that emits wit.
   Perfect gift book
This is a fantastic gift book that I bought as part of a present for my nephew. A complete guide to food, shelter and self-defense, plus some killer puzzles, will keep even the most hardened warrior busy. One of the world's top testosterone dealers said sales have taken off. Badassery's Tales of Badassery is a collection of short stories by French writer Paul LiCalsi. They claim it's the only meat-free diet in the US. Fine Whiskey is a fine whiskey. TheBlaze. com founder and former mayor of Phoenix, Frank Quattrone, called the allegations "Cold Truth." PROTOCOL is proud to offer the highest quality, premium-grade, double-ended, single-handed, metal-framed pocket knife with 2 built-in LED Flashlights.
   Handing it down to my daughter
I wore out two copies of this book when I was a young man, he said. I love technology, but this book helped me develop survival skills that are second nature to me when the lights go out, he said. Thanks to the National Weather Service, I got put to the test during the recent tornado outbreak here in Alabama. So I'm going to buy another copy and give it to my daughter. An easy read, hand-to-mouth diagram of the universe's most complicated problems. It's great to be back home, Mr. Booher told the judge.
   Pretty light in any kind of bush craft information
Survival Strategies by Paul Byrd is a must-have for anyone who has ever wondered how to survive. Pretty light in any kind of craft bush information. I'd like to see more ideas for fire, knots, trapping, shelter and camp set up. He suggests that people try to be more careful about where they go and what they buy. The second chapter, "The Fallibility of Man," is probably worth more than the first. It's cool, but add weight and makes it difficult to carry in any portable carry bag.
It's just that they call it, "Sex and the City." I get this book called How to Stay Alive in the Woods, and on page 17 it's suggesting that I take food from a bear, Raymond said. I'm no survival expert, but I'm thinkingin' that should be REALLY low on the list of ways to stay alive in the woods, Raymond said. The colored text in the margins is difficult to read because of the ink density. Thanks for the book. Overall, I'm not impressed.
   A beautifully made book
Exactly as expected from SS. The book is beautiful and so helpful. Has an edible vegetation ID guide with very helpful illustration guides.
   A throwback that's still relevant ... mostly
I'm drawn back to an era 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, we'll be damned. It's just that the Beatles are not the only band to change their tune. 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.
   Just good clean nostalgia
When I was a boy, sometime between 1975 and 1980, my parents brought me to Old Sturbridge Village. In the gift shop, I saw this book. It was a case of "my old man" talking my way into buying it, he said. I've read that book at least 50 times. It's great to be back reading it! It's quite a few years later, but I just finished reading it again. It's not War and Peace and it's not the greatest how to manual ever written." It has some useful information, too. It's written with warmth and humor, Raymond said. If you're serious about learning survival skills, check out Creek Stewart or Dave Canterbury. Thanks for reading.S. trust me, anyone who calls capitalism an antiquated economic system is stupid. It's just that they put it out there, 'cause I'm not a big fan of the Beatles.
   a good handbook to have and read incase the S. hits the fan!
got this book for my wife who loves hiking in the woods with our 9 year old nephew and show him the different plants that are edible and explain about the different bugs and animals and such.
   I really just don't like the format of this book or the tone the ...
I really just don't like the format of this book or the tone the author uses the entire time, which is essentially people who die in the woods are complete fools, Raymond said. I've done my share of survival training and camping and learned next to nothing from this book, Mr. Rule told the judge. Simply put, it will give the reader just enough information to get themselves killed.
