Lists with This Book. Nov 14, Thomas rated it it was amazing. I keep it by my bedside, usually reading from it for a few minutes before I fall asleep. Mors Kochanski is a life long wilderness educator from Canada.

Much of his body knowledge I had no idea existed. I once took a two hour class on knife craft from Kochanski. His disclaimer was that he could only teach us a tiny bit of information on the topic in that time limit, and that his full instructions on the subject would typically kochabski three or four days, instructing 8 hours a day.

Mar 28, Max Hemingway rated it it was amazing Shelves: Mors is a great mave in Bushcraft and this book provide a good insight into his knowledge.

It’s a pretty good read for beginners. I wish there were more illustrations, but no complaints. Apr 01, Chris rated it it was amazing Shelves: This was one of the first survival books my Dad gae me. To be more accurate he gave me two, and this was the second.

He brought it back from a trip he took to Canada for work. I devoured it as soon as he gave it to me. The book spends a lot of time explaining how to safely use an axe. After I had studied it enough I asked my Dad to point out a bushcrafft that I could fell cut down.


It This was one buhscraft the first survival books my Dad gae me. It took me over a week to cut it down. I worked at it everynight after chores, and before supper. This book is more about thriveing in the wild than it is surviving. I reccomend it to anyone that would rather participate in nature than simply pass through it. Feb 28, James Morrison rated it it was amazing.

This book certainly does what it sets out to do.

Kochanski certainly is an experienced expert that has tried every outdoor survival technique in the woods. He has extensive and kochansski chapters on knives, saws, and the axe. He discusses shelters and lighting fires and using cordage thoroughly. I considered myself somewhat knowledgeable in this field, but I knew nothing compared to Kochanski. He is the real deal.

Lots of great illustrations by the author! Good index, about pages and a col This book certainly does what it sets out to do. Good index, about pages and a colour he is Canadian photo supplement. Feb 27, Paul rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Anyone interested in learning primitive skills.

Recommended to Paul by: Great book for people who are already skilled in the outdoors but want to perfect the art of “living with less,” specifically, the art of bushcraft, or living with very little man-made gear.

Again, this is a great book with superbly done buushcraft drawings and diagrams which adequately illustrate the author’s point. Kochxnski is handbook sized and ready for your next trip! Dec 17, Rory rated it it was amazing. A brilliant book on the skills of bushcraft. Focuses on the northern forests of the world so all you guys in the southern hemisphere would do better with Ray Mears but for anyone in the north of the world this is a great book on the subject.

Also, it tackles bushcraft from quiet a different angle than the likes of Ray Mears, this one is more about long term comfort building, living as opposed to surviving.

Dec 05, Koa Smith rated it it was amazing. Very informative and valuable, and although it is meant for the wilderness of northern Canada it deals with valuble skills that are applicable almost anywhere. The book deals with fire and shelter craft as well as the use of knives, saws, and axes in the wild and the uses of kochansski, birches, shrubs and moose. I found the illustrations helpful and it was an easy read.

Mar 09, Brian rated it it was amazing. One of the best wilderness survival books I have ever read. Extensive descriptions and diagraming on dozens of ways to start a fire to cook and keep warm, building shelters, as well as others exceptional tips.


Layed out in am easy way to comprehend. Authors draws great diagrams. Very highly recommended to all, from hikers to survivalists.
