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.Table of Contents:PrefaceChapter 1: IntroductionChapter 2: Psychology of SurvivalChapter 3: Survival Planning and Survival KitsChapter 4: Basic Survival MedicineChapter 5: SheltersChapter 6: Water ProcurementChapter 7: FirecraftChapter 8: Food ProcurementChapter 9: Survival Use of PlantsChapter 10: Poisonous PlantsChapter 11: Dangerous AnimalsChapter 12: Field-Expedient Weapons, Tools, and EquipmentChapter 13: Desert SurvivalChapter 14: Tropical SurvivalChapter 15: Cold Weather SurvivalChapter 16: Sea SurvivalChapter 17: Expedient Water CrossingsChapter 18: Field-Expedient Direction FindingChapter 19: Signaling TechniquesChapter 20: Survival Movement In Hostile AreasChapter 21: CamouflageChapter 22: Contact with PeopleChapter 23: Survival In Man-Made HazardsAppendix A: Survival KitsAppendix B: Edible and Medicinal PlantsAppendix C: Poisonous PlantsAppendix D: Dangerous Insects and ArachnidsAppendix E: Venomous Snakes and LizardsAppendix F: Dangerous Fish and MollusksAppendix G: Ropes and KnotsAppendix H: Clouds: Foretellers of WeatherGlossaryBibliography
