ABOUT THE BOOK: Magic and mystery of plants; identifying and using 100 wild plants as food, medicine and craft; the lore of survival; primitive shelter, water purification, tools, cooking, cordage, insect repellents, traps and snares. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Mark Warren lives with his wife Susan in the mountains of north Georgia at his school, Medicine Bow. He has been teaching survival skills and nature classes for 45 years. In 1980 he was named Georgia's Conservation Educator of the Year by the National Wildlife Federation. He is author of Two Winters in a Tipi, published by Lyons Press, 2012. Is This Book for You? * If you are a student of nature on the quest to master the ancient survival skills of the Native Americans, this series of books is your step-by-step guide. * If you are a teacher who understands the value of experiential education for your students or scouts or outing club, your lesson plans lie within these covers. * If you are a hiker who wants to carry less gear and become more self-reliant by using what the forest has to offer, these pages will lighten your load. * If you are an employee at an outdoor venue (private, state or national park; summer camp; nature center; river, trail, or hunting guide) and you crave more knowledge of your natural surroundings for the sake of teaching clients, your schooling begins here. * If you yearn for that intimate relationship that the Native Americans enjoyed with nature - to transcend from visitor to participant in the forest, that life-changing journey begins here. * And especially if you are a parent who seeks the practical and spiritual grounding for your child that comes from time spent in the workshop of Nature, these pages are stepping stones on a pathway of adventures that you and your child can walk together. Quality family time, being at home in nature, learning the most fundamental skills that humans were meant to use on this planet … you'll find that here.
