How To Stay Alive in the Woods

August 30, 2013

This handsome reprint of Bradford Angiers’ 1965 classic How to Stay Alive in the Woods has been popping up on shop shelves lately and it’s caught our eye, too. The guide is full of straightforward, earnest, and practical advice for folks who might just find themselves lost in the woods.

In case you think he’s talking about someone else, he isn’t.

The tone and language in the book is at times charmingly out of date, but the advice has stood the test of time. Angiers is encouraging:  “The wilderness is too big to fight. Yet for those of us who’ll take advantage of the offerings, nature will furnish every necessity.” 

Above: How to Stay Alive in the Woods is available for $19.95 from Terrain.

Among those necessities, food. Above: colorful illustrations of edible vegetation.

For another wilderness classic, see Required Reading: Wilderness Route Finder.
