Description

Survival skills are techniques a person may use in a dangerous situation (e.g. natural disasters) to save themselves or others (see also bushcraft). Generally speaking, these techniques are meant to provide the basic necessities for human life: water, food, shelter, habitat, and the need to think straight, to signal for help, to navigate safely, to avoid unpleasant interactions with animals and plants, and for first aid. In addition, survival skills are often basic ideas and abilities that ancient humans had to use for thousands of years, so these skills are partially a reenactment of history. Many of these skills are the ways to enjoy extended periods of time in remote places, or a way to thrive in nature. Some people use these skills to better appreciate nature and for recreation, not just survival.

Customer Reviews

Everyone should have this!

As an experienced hunter and tracker, many things can happen in the wilderness. I was looking this app over for a friend and was impressed. Anyone that is not familiar with the great outdoors but would like to spend time there, needs to download this app. In this guide, there are basic skills that could be of great value to even an avid outdoorsman. Survival techniques for many different regions and conditions. Even if you're pure city, one bad skiing trip and this guide could help save your life! I'm not blowing smoke people! Everyone should know this stuff!

good read

I find this vary interesting in that it tells you what the military trains the army personnel in to staying alive they get real books because technology will most likely brake out in the wild but it's nice to know what I can do to stay alive also I'm using it for if something happens in the city or something

Survival Guide

This is a great resource to have in a emergency or tough time. The guide is comprehensive covering many aspects of what it takes to survive in a dire situation. One improvement that can be made is an enhancement so the text could be easier to read but besides that this application pretty much covers all bases.
