You can buy the gear with a few mouse clicks, but once it's loaded onto your back and holstered around your paracord belt, will you know how to put it to good use? In his Bushcraft 101: A Field Guide to the Art of Wilderness Survival outdoor conqueror Dave Canterbury doesn't just tell you what to horde in your bug out bag and backwoods pack, but also provides detailed instructions and illustrations on how to apply it. You know, when the 3-day hike turns from idyllic trek through fall foliage to lost in the pouring rain, no trail in sight, and what's that enormous patch of black fur rustling amidst the trees over there?

Bushcraft 101 focuses on the 5 Cs of survival: cutting tools; covering; combustion devices; containers; and cordages. Using both items brought and those from the surrounding environment, Canterbury teaches readers to utilize and craft key resources that will make alone time with nature more enjoyable, and help travelers out of sticky situations. Topics covered include:

  • Choosing the right items for your kit.
  • Manufacturing needed tools and supplies.
  • Collecting and cooking food.
  • Protecting yourself from the elements.

Bushcraft 101: A Field Guide to the Art of Wilderness Survival is a top Dude Gift for a Man pick.
