Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Craig Caudill's teaching style and practicality transfer into his writing ability quite well in his debut book. The subject matter, while not new, is well outlined, easily navigable, and manages to clearly articulate his thoughts without piously talking above his readers or dumbing down the subject matter for those with previous knowledge or experience. Extreme Wilderness Survival is unique in the sense of being a well-designed book intended to be carried and used as a reference manual, with it's stay-open spine design. It lays flat and open on any page, allowing the reader to follow the guide while using both hands to practice the various techniques. One of the strongest takeaways from this book is the focus on teamwork and team building, which is a welcome reprise from the typical "lone-wolf" approach to many previously written survival manuals. My only complaint is one that has been mentioned by several other reviewers and that is the difficulty to read the black text on the chapter heading pages featuring the forest background image. Overall, this is both a worthy introduction a great refresher on survival. I highly recommend Caudill's book and encourage anyone who purchases it to read it, heed it, and take it with you as you practice the many featured skills in this worthy resource.
