I'm torn on how to rate this book... The author is very intelligent, and the book is well thought out.. But to most people this book is not practical.

I think this book will only benefit the maybe .01% of people that might actually practice wilderness survival EXTREMELY hard core before the fact... 99.9% of the people who read this book WILL NOT be able to strap on a backpack and live off the land for months or years. (which is basically what this book is about).. Not only that,, most people that think they are going to survive like that will become part of the problem NOT part of the solution. Once the fantasy collapses temptation to try and take from others will be real....

Fantasyland Macgyver watching types that think they can watch re-runs 16 hours a day and then grab a knife and survive will love this book...
The ability to survive with one backback for months at a time with no resupply goes way beyond almost everyone's realistic abilities. I know right now there are lots of guys pissed off saying "yes I can" but let me ask those Kit Carson types- when is the last time you went out into the woods and survived off the land for 3 months with NO resupply? ..... If you are one of the .01% that has actually done this then my hats off to you... However to the overwhelming majority, this book will only fuel a completely unrealistic fantasy about putting on a coonskin cap and playing Daniel Boone..... If you want to prepare for real buy James Wesley Rawles book NOT this one..

Lots of Joe Sixpacks will try to bugout to a nearby National Forest to live off the land... The vast majority will become a problem when fantastyland and reality collide.... Don't be one of them... Prepare now to help yourself, your family, and those desperate people that will need your help.

With all that said, My hats off to the Author Scott Williams, I think Scott can actually pull off what he speaks of... however I think that vast majority of his readers never will...

- Just A "Missouri Prepper"

Preppers stay away!

Total "not what the blurb described." This is actually a travelogue for places to bug out to, and not a particularly good one either.

Not only is it useless, but further, it commits the unpardonable sin of being BORING!

OMG do I wish I had my credit back.
