Good book with practical tips for people who wish to learn how to survive on the short term in the wild. Lots of great info on how to identify edible plants and preserve food, ways to start fire from materials in your environment, and so on. Not so much a book about a long-term, sustainable relationship with the land, which I was hoping for a bit more of, but very good at what it does, which is essentially inform campers.
