“Naked Into the Wilderness”
Primitive Wilderness Living & Survival Skills
by John and Geri McPherson
Over 700 photographs and a couple dozen line drawings crammed into 400 pages presents in detail for the first time all of the skills needed to not just survive, but to create a life in the wilderness. Tanning skins with brains, making stone and other primitive tools, bows, arrows, fire by friction, pottery, baskets, traps, shelters, cordage, cooking, And more. All primitively. The ten individual chapters were originally printed as booklets covering the various skills in detail with but one goal – to teach you, the reader, how to actually accomplish the task at hand. Lots of information gained from first hand experience in one spot for the reader who desires to go beyond just reading about “how-to”.
The authors, John & Geri McPherson, aka Prairie Wolf, know of what they write. This is not a compilation of other author’s works nor a rehashing and perpetuating of myths. The McPhersons not only know their stuff but also how to present it. They have perfected these skills over a lifetime of learning and decades of actual hands on experience. They have been training the U.S. Army Special Forces S.E.R.E. survival instructors in these skills in an ongoing program since 2004.
If you have been accustomed to reading books on wilderness skills that entertain you but fall short of actually teaching you how to accomplish the task at hand, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. 1993. 408 Pages.
*A note from Dave:
I’m quite pleased to offer these books for sale here. John and Geri McPherson are friends and neighbors of mine. I have learned much from John over the last 20 or so years and the majority of that information is presented in these books. With the Naked into the Wilderness series you will learn in detail how to accomplish many primitive and survival skills. These are the best books on the subject available in my opinion. John and Geri not only teach it, they live it.
