A good way to prepare for potential emergencies is to read and learn from informative books with practical, usable information. “Camping’s Forgotten Skills: Backwoods Tips From a Boundary Waters Guide” by Cliff Jacobson is one of those literary resources that should be part of any survival or prepper library.
The book was first published in 1992. Author Jacobson is an Eagle Scout, a teacher and guide in the Boundary Waters. He has written 11 other wilderness-related books.
Jacobson writes that it’s important to have high tech equipment, and know how to use it.

How will you repair a large tear in your tarp or tent fly? Can you start a fire to prevent hypothermia?
