Wilderness Survival Handbook: Primitive Skills for Short-Term Survival and Long-Term Comfort
Author: Michael Pewtherer
International Marine/Ragged Mountain Press | 2010 | ISBN: 0071484671

An essential guide to everything you need to stay sheltered, fed, healthy, and safe in the backcountry
Organized around the six essentials of survival (shelter, water, food, fire, comfort and health, and navigation), Wilderness Survival Handbook covers 100 skills and techniques, including preserving fire, building pit shelters, toolmaking, stoneboiling cookery, and trapping and hunting animals with handmade tools and weapons. By mastering these skills, you will be able to survive with few tools or provisions in any wilderness setting--forest, plain, desert, or tundra--in nearly any part of the world.

Acorn Preparation Methods

Acorns can be prepared and eaten with a minimum of effort. With the right methods, acorns can be shelled, ground, rinsed of tannins, and cooked more easily than you would imagine. Not only the nut meat but also starch and oil can be extracted. Acorns can be used in soups, cereals, breads, as a binder in pies, and in other surprising and delicious ways. This book is the result of many months of experiments gathering and processing acorns. You will find information here that cannot be found in web sites about acorns. You can see the entire book for free by looking at the book preview, one page at a time.
