Hey, all, I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted but I wanted to give you a heads up about a new book by our co-moderator, Kevin Estela, that’s being released soon! I met Kevin a long time ago right at the start of his wilderness skills journey. I’ve watched with pride as he quickly went from student to master of wilderness and survival skills. He always had an amazing natural talent for these skills, but he also has worked tirelessly to continually improve and perfect them out in the most austere conditions in every environment around the world. He’s truly the real deal as a survival expert! That’s why I’m really excited about his new book “101 Skills You Need to Survive in the Woods.” After years of very incomplete presentations in other books, even by some very skilled and renowned people, for the first time in wilderness book history, Kevin is the only one who has written a manual that can actually be immediately put to practice by readers. He doesn’t just show you the skills, but he teaches you how and where to find and recognize the natural materials you’ll need to survive, and he brilliantly demonstrates how to “marry” primitive skills with modern skills and gear. Plus, he beautifully keeps it all in context of the principles, priorities, and goals you’ll need to know as you expand your own skill sets — the critical factor in effectively surviving in the outdoors. In other words, he doesn’t just show you how to use these skills, but *why.* I eagerly await watching readers begin sharing their abilities to use and apply the skills that they learned from Kevin’s book. 5 stars out of 5!
