Written by an experienced woodsman, this is a great guide for learning how to spend time stranded in the wilderness without dying from starvation or exposure, but that's about it. While this topic fascinates me, it doesn't really apply to my current situation, and I had to give up reading the book in favor of others that speak directly to what it going on in my life now.
The most ancient and important skills, preserved for generations, are presented in a simple, easy-to-use format with clear illustrations and instructions. Tom Brown's an eloquent writer and I appreciate how he describes backcountry living in the book.
It is about learning the skills of our paleolithic ancestor: making bows and arrows, stalking deer, tanning hides with their brains, making pemmican, and so forth.

I really dig that he writes about 'survival' as a way of life (which is information I'm looking for) as opposed to something like Les Stroud's "Survive" which talks about survival from an emergency-"I need to be rescuded" stance. These skills are surely as difficult and time-consuming to learn for us as learning to navigate the internet would be for a cave man. The reason I rated them so highly is that Tom Brown's books contain knowledge that has practically vanished from the Earth.
There are some very basic but need to know skills along with the more risque type skills for people who are a bit more adventurous and wish to try something different. There's information on wild edibles, various shelter constructions, various types of animal traps and such.

Both the field guides and the biographical and autobiographical books deliver an understanding of nature that is missing from modern life.
