John & Geri McPherson are leaders in the field of primitive technology. They are not "arm chair" primitives but daily practitioners.

John & Geri McPherson are leaders in the field of primitive technology. they live it. This vast experience is reflected in their teachings. A book titled 'Naked Into The Wilderness' shouldn't require a damned refrigeration unit to use. Also, the pictures are incredibly grainy (yes, considering that it's 2018 I do expect such a popular book to remaster the photos) and they spend too much time on charming little anecdotes which amounts to extra weight in my inch bag.

These are tried and true methods of primitive wilderness living and survival skills. deals with taking flat nothing into boondocks and staying for a long period of time.

I have been interested in learning primitive living/survival skills and decided to give this book a shot. I was happy with the "how to" aspect of the individual chapters. Each chapter has Information and pictures that detail various skills needed. I would buy this book for the first 5 chapters alone. The next 5 are a bonus, and have excellent information as well. I have used the information in these chapters to tan a deer hide, learned to build (and have used) traps, learned to make cordage! I am not a big fan of the authors writing style, but that's just me. I am used to book like the SAS survival guide.
Over all, if you give the techniques shown here a try, you will learn a few things about primitive living yourself. Today I am working on knaping some obsidian with the info in this book.

Everything about this book from the description to the title to the cover photo screams "this is how you survive if dropped off in the wilderness and have to build up from the stone age. I've only skimmed the first section and have already found mentions of sand paper and refrigeration, neither of which are readily available in the middle of the woods.

Don't get me wrong, there is obviously a lot of worthwhile information in here and I plan on supplementing it with my own research . . . but I shouldn't have to. A book titled 'Naked Into The Wilderness' shouldn't require a damned refrigeration unit to use. Also, the pictures are incredibly grainy (yes, considering that it's 2018 I do expect such a popular book to remaster the photos) and they spend too much time on charming little anecdotes which amounts to extra weight in my inch bag.

I found this book really good - for me, it was better than the military SAS survival books, because it gave more details, in a context and format that made better sense. I'm no expert - hence my purchase of the book - but after reading it and following along as I tried things in it, I find I am better able to perform many of the skills it covers - and thus, more confident in my ability to survive, which can help give an edge.

This is a fantastic book. Clear pictures of what is happening to help you out. I've always heard of "brain tanning". Never seen it done until now. Also has explanations of what you are doing followed by why and what will happen if you don't say manage to work all the brain oil into the leather or whatever

Good book, good ideas, very practical. He practices what he preaches. Some of the ideas are goofy like smashing a mouse in a trap then grilling it whole on the coals and eating it. Yuck. Mostly starts from ground zero which is cool but not really practical in most situations. This combines a series of books into one, which is good. Pretty well written, with a primitive twist.

Only having begun to glance through it, although i am a fast reader, this book seems to be a wealth of practical and essential knowledge about surviving, living, more of the old way. Their section on making a bow is very thorough, and the writing style is nice.

This book is an excellent beginners guide for the inexperienced outdoorsman.
The book contains 10 well developed chapters that will get you well on your way to being able to "live off the land." The topics covered in this book are as follows: tanning deer skins, making fire, cordage, making a bow and arrows, making traps, meat preservation, primitive cooking methods, field dressing and butchering a deer, container making (baskets and pottery), making tools, and making shelters.
Most of these topics are covered in amazing detail with plenty of photographs. The McPhersons do an excellent job of explaining the topics so that even people with no outdoor experience could perform the task almost immediately. The only exception I found was the chapter on making baskets. Even though I read the chapter several times, I do not feel I could not weave a basket (in all do fairness, it may be easier when I actually attempt the task).
I can not stress enough how easy this book makes a seemingly impossible task for people who lack the basic knowledge of wilderness survival skills. The McPhersons don't just give you the instructions, they also explain the physics or logic behind what they are writing about. I recommend this book to anyone who needs/wants a firm foundation in basic survival skills.
I like this book, just wish for larger layout and larger / clearer photos
