Bushcraft 101: A Field Guide to the Art of Wilderness Survival by Dave Canterbury

Posted at — Nov 2, 2019

A lot of tips about all things bushcraft, from picking your backpack to making traps. Some of them pretty US-specific but that’s expected (e.g. in the overview of plants to use as medicine or brands of knives).

I was lucky to have someone who practiced bushcraft to answer my questions about the stuff I was reading. While a lot of general principles were confirmed, on a lot of details I got either different or better information. Still, I think this book is a good high-level introduction to the topic, and it reads very easily.
