Melbourne, FL – June 17, 2014 – Each day we wake up from a good night’s sleep to be greeted each day with world where national and local news can scare the living bejesus out of us. I can only speculate that some of you think may think - how can I just get through this day and survive and what can I do if we really have a large scale catastrophe. Well I have good news for you. The editors of Outdoor Life and Tim Macwelch have put together 338 essential survival skills in an easy to read book titled the “Prepare for Anything Survival Manual.”

About the Author: According to Weldonowen, “TIM MACWELCH, founder and head instructor at Master Woodsman School has had a love of the outdoors from a young age, growing up on a farm in the rolling hills of Virginia. Eating wild berries, fishing for trout and learning about the animals of the forest were an everyday part of his country life. Tim has been an active practitioner of survival and outdoor skills for over twenty-four years; and he has been actively teaching survival skills for the past 16 years. Tim and his wilderness school have been on Good Morning America and National Geographic , and featured in several publications including Conde Nast Traveler Magazine and the Washington Post newspaper. Tim has written articles for Outdoor Life magazine, The Virginia Sportsman newspaper, and for several blogs and online survival sites. At the beginning of 2011, Tim became the head contributor for the Outdoor Life Survival website, and providing them with 3 articles per week, every week.”

This book is divided into 338 topics in three main sections, Gear, Skills and Survival. The first ten topics cover general information that is important for your survival. The remainder of the 328 topics is split between the three sections.

The manual is well thought out with great photos. Photos are used extensively to give the reader examples of what the author is explaining and to help the manual user visualize what the author is teaching in each survival skill.

The manual is a survivalist’s road map on how to endure when times get tough. You do not have to be a hardcore survivalist to use this manual. It has great ideas that you can use around the house or on your next camping or backpacking trip. The skill on how to make a raised-bed garden can be used at home and the first aide skills can come in handy anywhere – anytime.

After reviewing all 338 essential skills, there are many skills in this manual that you can use - that before you got the book - you had no idea on how to do. How about how to use your paracord shoe laces to cut through a zip tie used as a handcuff or how to dress a rabbit or how to make gunpowder.
