Be Prepared! Time-tested advice on emergency preparedness. An official publication of the Boy Scouts of America!

Each year hundreds of outdoor enthusiasts find themselves in an unexpected outdoor emergency. They get lost, injured, or stranded. Cut off from the rest of the world, they have to depend upon their survival skills to survive.

For most people, thanks to modern communications such as cell phones, satellite messengers, and personal locator beacons (PLB), it is merely a sobering two- or three-hour adventure. However, for some who did not take the proper precautions before they left home or do not have survival skills, it can end in tragedy.

J. Wayne Fears uses his Army and Air Force training to make sure that everyone in the outdoors remembers the Boy Scout motto “Be Prepared.” His practical advice offers help with:

  • How to build a fire
  • How to purify water
  • How to identify common edible plants and mushrooms
  • How to signal for help
  • How to build simple shelters
  • Practical navigation skills
  • And so much more!

Since 1910, the Boy Scouts of America has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The BSA is committed to training youth in responsible citizenship, character development, and self-reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities.

Knife and Tomahawk Throwing by Harry K. McEvoy. 28 pages.

Learn how to navigate without a compass, even when it seems impossible!

Whether we are walking or driving, whether in the woods, on the water, or in the city, it&;s vital that we know where we are and are able to find our way around. But with society&;s current dependence on modern tools and technology, many persons would have no idea how to navigate without a compass or GPS. In an emergency situation, that lack of knowledge could easily prove fatal.

In The Ultimate Guide to Navigating without a Compass, survival expert Christopher Nyerges provides readers with all the skills that they may need to navigate naturally. The book begins by describing the meaning of natural navigation, and then moves on to describe, in detail, the methods of natural navigation, including using the sun, the stars, the moon, and shadows. Additional topics include:

  • How to read a map
  • How to make a sun dial
  • How to make a star dial
  • How to use clouds to predict weather patterns
  • How to track celestial changes
  • How to gauge time through natural observation
  • And much more!



With helpful diagrams, illustrations, and sidebars, The Ultimate Guide to Navigating without a Compass is the fundamental reference book for learning how to navigate by natural methods.

Now outdoorsman and survivalists can own the official US Army guide to edible plants. Whether you are a stranded soldier, a wilderness hiker, or you just want to know which plants growing in your backyard are edible, this is an invaluable resource.

Anyone who has spent serious time outdoors knows that in survival situations, wild plants are often the only sustenance available. The proper identification of these plants can mean the difference between survival and death.

This book describes habitat and distribution, physical characteristics, and edible parts of wild plants—the key elements of identification.

Hugely important to the book are its color photos. There are over one hundred of them, further simplifying the identification of poisonous and edible plants. No serious outdoors person should ever hit the trail without this book and the knowledge contained within it.
