Worth the price I paid.. Not bad at all. Not perfect but so far the very best one I’ve found. Is not the actual version rather a black and white reproduction. I give it 5 star mainly as again, best one I found yet. Color e-version is avail for free and can print these yourself but one I did was rather time consuming to piece together in book form with a decent binder to keep it together. E-version pics are a tiny bit clearer and many are in color. To sum it up, for under $15.00 it is worth it…..

A Basic Handbook for Survival/Bushcraft Information Ok… this hasn’t changed much since the last publication decades ago. If you were in the Military, you likely had one of these from either Basic or Advanced Infantry Training. Same how-to’s, same info… which is quite broad in scope. Much of what a new book written by a Bushcrafter or Survivalist about such topics will offer the same or similar content. Some of these writers, however, do have clever ideas to add, so if you’re interested in such stuff, don’t think this is the end-all. In fact it is a good handbook covering a broad range of topics, very often with useful and helpful illustrations and descriptions. And the price is right, too. Many more topics than even an older Boy Scout Handbook, which often covered a selection of such topics in similar fashion; the Boy Scout Handbook of today pales in comparison with respect to solid out-door topics.

An example is “how to suck venom out of a snake bite” This book is okay, but it has some outdated info that is very dangerous if followed. An example is “how to suck venom out of a snake bite”…Please dont EVER do this as you will contaminate yourself and now both you and the bitten person are in possible medical emergency. The plant pictures have something to be desired as detail is very important with plants.
