Meet the Author

John McCann founded Survival Resources™ with the goal of offering the best survival products available. After the publication of his book Build the Perfect Survival Kit, John realized there was an absence of businesses that specialized in providing survival products and equipment, especially survival kit components, so he started selling them. Customers starting asking if John would design and build some ready made survival kits. At first, he declined, wanting people to build their own kits from the components he offered. However, after some more prompting, he started designing and offering ready-made kits and they became an instant success. Survival Resources also offers outdoor skills courses, and John is the Chief Instructor. McCann lives in Hyde Park, NY.
