For some, the dream is to drop out of regular life and go and live half way up a mountain somewhere. But you can’t just go off grid without any knowledge at all as you will either be back fairly shortly or have something happen to you. To minimise the nasty stuff happening though you would this handy pocket-sized guide.

The essentials of living outdoors are food, water, fire and shelter. This guide has got lots of practical advice for making campfires, making shelters including how to build a log cabin, finding safe water sources, hunting and fishing, map skills and a suggested kit list.

It was an interesting book with reasonable detail for the various subjects covered and is full of useful survival tactics for those wishing to head for the hills. If you are thinking of doing this I’d recommend reading this and several other books on the subject before turning your phone off and walking into the woods.
