Waterford Press sent us Dave Canterbury's series of pocket survival guides to check out recently. The eight different titles are:
Shelter, Fire, Water
Wilderness First Aid
Signaling For Rescue
Basic & Primitive Navigation
Improvised Hunting Weapons
Building a Survival Kit
The guides are constructed to be lightweight and waterproof. The emphasis is on surviving in the Eastern US, but much of the information is universal. Regardless of Dave's "resume embellishment" saga, I think he did a great job on these guides, as the information is sound, helpful and well written. Definitely worth consideration as something to throw in your pack "just in case."
