"If you breathe and have a pulse, you NEED this book."
Cody Lundin, director of the Aboriginal Living Skills School in Prescott, Arizona, shares his own brand of wilderness wisdom in this highly anticipated new book on commonsense, modern survival skills for the backcountry, the backyard, or the highway. It is the ultimate book on how to stay alive-based on the principal of keeping the body's core temperature at a lively 98.6 degrees. In his entertaining and informative style, Cody stresses that a human can live without food for weeks, and without water for about three days or so. But if the body's core temperature dips much below or above the 98.6 degree mark, a person can literally die within hours. It is a concept that many don't take seriously or even consider, but knowing what to do to maintain a safe core temperature when lost in a blizzard or in the desert could save your life. Lundin delivers the message with wit, rebellious humor, and plenty of backcountry expertise.
Cody Lundin and his Aboriginal Living Skills School have been featured in dozens of national and international media sources, including Dateline NBC, CBS News, USA Today, The Donny and Marie Show, and CBC Radio One in Canada, as well as on the cover of Backpacker magazine. When not teaching for his own school, he is an adjunct faculty member at Yavapai College and a faculty member at the Ecosa Institute. Cody is the only person in Arizona licensed to catch fish with his hands, and lives in a passive solar earth home sixty miles from Prescott, Arizona.
Great book! This is a thousand times better than any other survival guide / book in the store. I highly recommend anyone looking to be better prepared, read this book first and then read the other book by the same author called "when all hell breaks loose". Book #2 provides even more information and updates from this book (recommend reading both to get a really good concept of self resilience.)
Being in emergency preparedness management, I truly can't express how important this information should be to everyone!
Good book worth a read
It's a very enlightening book that teaches you a lot on what to prepare before you go on any day trip
I liked this book. I live in Alaska and am an avid hunter, so I am always looking for survival info. I have read a few books on the subject including the sas survival guide. This is basically the same thing broke down into common sense and humor, with very good facts. It really all comes down to being prepared and having a plan. I highly recommend this book.
