About The Book

Water and Fire Survival Handbook  — Your Guide to Finding Safe Drinking Water and Creating Fire in Almost Any Survival Situation, from a New York Times Bestselling Author and Survival Expert

New York Times bestselling author and survival school founder Tim MacWelch shows us how to find and provide safe drinking water in survival situations, and how to start a camp fire with a wide range of techniques and materials. In Water and Fire Survival Handbook, MacWelch illustrates and guides readers through the common supplies needed for gathering water and the knowledge necessary to know where to look to obtain water.  Learn how to find, disinfect, avoid cross-contamination, and store water in a wide range of environments and survival situations, and also, learn how to get by with less than you might have imagined. And since water and fire are closely tied in survival, you’ll also learn how to start a fire with modern methods (like matches and lighters) as well as ancient methods (such as friction fire techniques and focusing sunlight). Throughout this detailed handbook you’ll find:

  • How to locate water on any landscape
  • Effective ways to collect precipitation
  • Traditional and modern water disinfection techniques
  • How to find the necessary fuels to start fires
  • The best ways to use modern fire ignition methods, like ferrocerium rods and lighters
  • Primitive fire starting methods like the bow drill, flint & steel and the bamboo fire saw
  • How to maintain a fire once it’s established and how to make sure it’s out when you are done  

Water and Fire Survival Handbook will give readers much more than just the knowledge to light a fire and provide safe drinking water; it provides tools to become a problem-solver and think outside the box in any situation.
