There's a lot of misconceptions out there about how urban survival and wilderness survival, camping do or do not fit together. Arguments range from saying wilderness survival skills and camping can help in urban survival situations to saying all you that's needed for long-term urban survival is your survival or camping gear. The truth does, however, lie in between.Regardless you level of experience or the amount of skill, this guide has some great stuff to share about outdoor and urban survival. In both urban and wilderness survival, the most crucial and common factor that determine whether you'll succeed or fail lies in your mindset. The fundamentals of survival are common to urban and wilderness scenarios: shelter, food, security, medical, water, and fire. However there some notable differences. In wilderness or outdoor survival scenarios, it will normally be you or group of people trying to survive off from the land or from what you've been able to carry along. In other words, you can think of a wilderness survival scenario as you vs. the world. A typical character you can identify such situations with is John Rambo where it's basically him vs. the world. Quite often, wilderness survival scenarios take place because there isn't anyone else around. Long-term urban survival, on the other hand, is a totally different situation to this regard. There will be people around you. After being able to keep yourself under control, a crucial factor that will determine your long-term urban survival will be how well you can interact with different people. Are you able to forge relationships and friends? Are you willing to exchange services and or goods with other people? Can you achieve this in such a way that you'll be able to get good deals and still maintain good relationships with those other people in the future? Have your actions been in such a way that people will look for you when they need help? These are some vital attributes and things to consider when looking to survive in an urban setup. Let's get started!

Bushcraft covers all areas of survival and camping activities: making ropes and cords, building huts, camp craft, finding food and water, making maps, starting fires, tying knots, and fashioning hunting and trapping gear—virtually every technique required to stay alive in the woods. With over 400 black-and-white illustrations and photographs, this book explains how to make use of natural materials found locally in any area, conserving instead of destroying native flora and fauna.
