Survival

Tools of Navigation [1]When you’re talking survival you’re talking many different things. Can you read a map? Can you use a compass? Could you find food in the woods? How about bears…do you know how to keep one from attacking you? You live in Indiana, do you know how to keep yourself safe during tornadoes? These books will show you all the skills you need to survive all kinds of anxious situations. You can even learn how to protect yourself from piranhas…not a likely attack…but good to know!
