Survival Kits

Several years ago I was listening to the Field and Stream radio show.   John D. McCann was interviewed about building a survival kit that would fit into an Altoids can.  I then learned about his book Build The Perfect Survival Kit.

I was a bit dubious at first but by the end of the interview I went on line and bought the book.

This is a super book.

The front half goes through different items that can be put into a survival kit.  McCann then evaluates each item.  The last half he provides templates for different types of kits based on activity.  For example, the kit a day hiker would use is completely different from what a SAR team member might carry.

This book belongs in your personal library.
