Release Date: 1993-03
Genre: Cooking

For those who have been accustomed to reading books on wilderness skills that entertain but fall short of actually teaching you "how to" accomplish the tasks and skills at hand, this book is a pleasant surprise - written for those who wish to actually head into the wilderness and practice the skills of our ancestors. Primitive Wilderness Living and Survival Skills is a compilation of ten booklets written over the course of seven years each chapter a complete, concise "how-to" in itself. Unlike many who have written on this subject in the past, John and Geri McPherson have spent years daily practicing these skills, perfecting methods through trial and error - and documenting it. This vast knowledge is passed on to the reader. Illustrated with over 700 photographs crammed into 400 pages, this massive work is not a rehashing and perpetuation of myths. These are tried and true methods of primitive wilderness living and survival skills. Field and Stream says: "The McPherson's book....deals with taking flat nothing into boondocks and staying for a long period of time. If you'd like to know how to make a spear thrower, or pottery, or brain cure deer hides, or build a permanent shelter from what you find at and, here is the place to learn." And Sports Afield: "....Full of practical, tested advice for living off the land."

Living Through the End of Nature

Author: Paul Wapner
Publisher: MIT Press
ISBN: 9780262265706
Release Date: 2010-02-12
Genre: Nature

Environmentalists have always worked to protect the wildness of nature but now must find a new direction. We have so tamed, colonized, and contaminated the natural world that safeguarding it from humans is no longer an option. Humanity's imprint is now everywhere and all efforts to "preserve" nature require extensive human intervention. At the same time, we are repeatedly told that there is no such thing as nature itself -- only our own conceptions of it. One person's endangered species is another's dinner or source of income. In Living Through the End of Nature, Paul Wapner probes the meaning of environmentalism in a postnature age. Wapner argues that we can neither go back to a preindustrial Elysium nor forward to a technological utopia. He proposes a third way that takes seriously the breached boundary between humans and nature and charts a co-evolutionary path in which environmentalists exploit the tension between naturalism and mastery to build a more sustainable, ecologically vibrant, and socially just world. Beautifully written and thoughtfully argued, Living Through the End of Nature provides a powerful vision for environmentalism's future
