Overview

This illustrated edition contains full-color photographs, diagrams, and tables. This is the ultimate guide for survival preppers or those who just want to be prepared to handle any situation life might throw at them.

Have you ever wondered how you would survive getting lost in the wilderness or a plane crash at sea? Do you know which plants are edible and which are poisonous? Do you know how to purify water without having to build a fire? Can you construct a shelter for any environment, whether desert, mountain, or swamp? Do you know how to treat an infected wound without antibiotics? If a natural disaster took away your electricity, water, or even house, would you know how to protect and feed your family?

The sad truth is that many of us don’t know even the basics of how to survive without modern technology. With natural disasters like hurricanes, earthquakes, and tsunamis taking out power and water and displacing tens of thousands of people with each occurrence, survival skills are a necessity. We can’t rely on government and relief agencies to provide for all our needs when a big disaster strikes. It’s up to each of us to learn these skills so we can apply them when we need them most.

This completely illustrated survival guide was adapted from Army Field Manual 3-05.70 (FM 21-76). It provides you with valuable instructions on how to survive any type of emergency. You will learn the following valuable skills and information, plus much more:

- What to do when you first find yourself in a survival situation.
- How to plan for emergencies, and what to include in a survival kit.
- What you need to maintain basic health, including water, food, and personal hygiene.
- How to recognize and treat various medical emergencies with limited resources.
- How to avoid, recognize, and treat environmental injuries, such as frostbite and heatstroke.
- What to do if there is a concern about radiation.
- How to procure water and food in any area of the world.
- How to build a fire and shelter with natural objects.
- How to recognize dangerous plants and animals.
- How to create basic weapons.
- How to survive in any setting, including desert, tropical, cold, and sea.
- How to find your way by using the stars and other natural methods.
- How to signal for help by using different techniques, including smoke, panel signals, whistles, and natural materials.

    Important Book

    If you ever need to survive on youre own or with a group this a good book. Read it and you will learn important life skills. Sadly, most ovf us do not know how to use theese skills or do not know anything about surviving. If youre planning on being left in the wild take this book with you. It is essential and intresting. It will help you prepare for the worst case-senarrio situations. If you ever plan on running away to survive on youre own, this is youre book. This is absolutly a must read. It isnt really a natural disaster book, it just teaches you the most important things and shows you haw to prepare youtself physicaly, emotionaly, and mentaly and teaches you things like the importance of water, hoe to purify water without s fire, and how to make weaponds. It also tells you how to feed yourself from the earth. This book is absulutly, positivly a nessesity and I can tell you that I absuluttly love ut and highly recomend it.
