Bushcraft 101 is a great book from the well known Survivalist and self reliance expert Dave Canterbury. Dave is the author of Bushcraft 101, Advanced Bushcraft, and The Bushcraft Guide to Trapping, Gathering, and Cooking in the Wild. There are those, such as Will Lord, who thrive on explorations of the most primitive skills such as flint-knapping, hide tanning and traditional fire lighting. If you already have a decent amount of experience in the woods, I would check out the sequel to this book; Advanced Bushcraft.Based on the 5Cs of Survivability, cutting tools, covering, combustion devices, containers, and cordages. Bushcraft 101 is exactly what it says it is starting with the basics and working through the essentials of bushcraft Dave Canterbury brings you everything you need to know in one book and a few that you probably didn't think you needed to know, well worth reading. Fire starting, packing your pack the correct way is important, as you do not want your pack, rucksack heavy at the bottom.

This book was a New York Times Best Seller when it published, showing the popularity of the subject and the book.

Written by survivalist expert Dave Canterbury, Bushcraft 101 gets you ready for your next backcountry trip with advice on making the most of your time outdoors. I work in multiple medias to include You Tube Video, Television, and Writing to help educate people in Wilderness Self Reliance and Pioneer Skills.Bushcraft 101 is an introduction to these personal principles on how to make the most of your time in the woods utilising traditional skills and equipment. Compared to the SAS book that can fit into a pocket, this is inferior in quality of information, but if it's the only book on this subject you have, it has the information that will aid a person that lacks these basic outdoor skills. Dave begins the book by laying out his unique approach to tools and equipment – the 5 Cs – the items that are difficult and/or time consuming to produce from natural resources on a trip.
