If you are wanting to learn the everyday skills that are required to live for an extended period in the wilderness, this is the book for you. With over 700 photos in 408 pages, Naked into the Wilderness is truly a training guide for real primitive living skills. This book was written for the express purpose of teaching the audience "how-to" accomplish the task at hand. The authors know of what they write. This is not a compilation of other author's works nor a rehashing and perpetuation of myths. The McPhersons not only know their stuff but also how to present it.
