100 Tips and Techniques for Surviving and Thriving in the Wild

If there's one thing John Wayne admired, it was someone who could stand on their own two feet and take care of themselves no matter what the day might bring. As a lover of the outdoors, he understood the challenges that come with living in the wild. It was a point of pride with Duke to play so many pioneers and explorers in his films - people with the skills that enabled them to master a life on their own far from the edges of civilization.

The editors of The Official John Wayne Magazine are proud to publish The Official John Wayne Handy Book of Bushcraft - just the thing you need to prepare for a safe, satisfying backcountry trip.

The book includes 100 tips and techniques for surviving and thriving in the wild, from making your own tools out of found materials to hunting your own game without a weapon or fishing pole. You'll find detailed step by step guidelines for:

- Finding or building tools and supplies to help you face whatever the wild may throw your way
- How to capture, collect and cook food
- Protect yourself from harsh weather, extreme temperatures and unfriendly wildlife
- Navigate by the stars, the sun and the wind

Written by Billy Jensen, a former Green Beret, and Check Freedman, the Handy Book of Bushcraft provides the information you need to prepare for any wilderness situation and respond to the unexpected with confidence and skill.
