Some say it's survival of the fittest. What it should be is survival of the prepared, and here's why...

Are you tired of living in a world where humans have lost all kinds of consideration to mother nature, having become infinitely indulged in the concepts of profit and greed?

Do you find attractive the idea of living on the edge with only the bare minimum, wanting to experience the ultimate satisfaction that comes from being creative and resourceful in the wild?

Are you fed up with being surrounded by concrete, buildings, and an ever-growing dependence on technology to manage your life, looking to escape the city and learn the many pieces of forgotten wisdom our great ancestors left behind?

If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, then look no further - bushcraft is precisely what you need.

Whether you want to build your own shelter, start your own fire with nothing but a spindle and board, or even set a trap to catch your own food, mastering the art of manufacturing everything you need can take you a long way to surviving on your own.

With so much uncertainty surrounding us in the world of today - economic crashes, global warming, and impending health crises - the urge to be prepared for a worst-case scenario is ever-growing.

It is no surprise then that as many as 3.7 million Americans consider themselves survivalists, and the numbers are only increasing exponentially worldwide.

It may finally be the time for you to go into the wilderness with nothing but your hands, and start exploring all the possibilities that nature has to offer you to become completely independent and stop relying on anything or anyone but yourself to survive and thrive.

Don't jump in just yet, though! 

You'll need proper guidance to help you understand exactly what you need and how you need to do it. You must prepare yourself for any challenge you may face out there to avoid much unnecessary time spent in the dark simply trying to figure things out.

In Essential Bushcraft, you will discover:

  • Why bushcraft is the answer you've been searching for to become completely independent and easily survive on your own in the wilderness 
  • Exactly how to begin your preparations to survive in nature, even if you've never been outside the city in your life 
  • Step-by-step guidance on how to acquire all the essentials with nothing but your wit and your hands 
  • What exactly your relationship to nature could be if you take the time to understand its endless secrets and hidden gems 
  • Straightforward techniques to build your own tools and finally become the engineer of your own life 
  • The empowering skills you will get once you master the knowledge and mysteries of all the wealth of the earth
  • And much more

Bushcraft is not just about surviving in nature; it is about adopting a new way of thinking. It means overcoming the needs and desires of a modern man and only relying on the essentials.

The practice goes beyond the simplicity of a vacation. It is a real immersion into the untamed wilderness that surrounds us on a different level - nature is not just a safe place to pitch a tent; nature also provides.

If others like Dave Canterbury, Les Stroud, and David Arama have been able to unlock the secrets of nature and master the art of survival and real independence, then there's no reason why you can't.
