Pretty good introduction to bushcraft

Straightforward, relatively clear if you look at the PDF, and a personable writing style. Worth spending a credit on if you are looking for a quick 101 on bushcraft.

Good stuff!

Really enjoyed it. Good book for the beginner to novice. I would add more on what you can eat etc., gear choices and trap making but other then that it was very enjoyable.

As my title says, this book would be better if it’s on paper or on kindle.

great for the basics

I recently reviewed the second book Advanced Bushcraft and I love that one as well. I learned a lot more than I thought I would from reading a book by a guy I saw on Discovery Channel who was supposed to know a lot about survival. You never know what you're going to get. but it didn't take long to figure out this guy's the real deal. I've been reading survival books for 20 years and with good ones like this you always learn a few things you had never thought of which always helps to go into the storage data of the Mind.

very useful and easy to understand

the narration is clear, but you will still probably need the PDF of visuals. I didn't rate the story because there is none.

This book is not the art of wilderness survival, but the art of wilderness camping.

Just In Case...

Very detailed easy to follow and understand. Also definitely not to be taken lightly and taking notes is only going to help you to remember important steps.
