The Ultimate Wilderness Survival Guide

"If you are serious about survival, this book is required reading." ―Alan Kay, winner of Alone, season 1 (History Channel) and coauthor of Decline and Decay: Strategies for Surviving the Coming Unpleasantness

#1 Bestseller in Caving & Spelunking and Hiking & Camping Instructional

Former Special Forces Operator and Instructor, Joshua Enyart, provides essential skills and a step-by-step wilderness survival strategy in his debut bushcraft book, Surviving the Wild.

A bushcraft survival and field guide. If you found yourself suddenly thrust into the wild without any modern conveniences like electricity, running water, wi-fi, or Google--would you know what to do? In a pandemic induced post-apocalypse, do you know what your first priority should be? If your caving, camping, or hiking adventure goes haywire, how would you ensure your survival? Written by a former Army Ranger and Green Beret, this survival book provides crucial information alongside a logical, systems-based approach to survival and preparedness.

Navigation, tools, first aid, and other survival strategies for the outdoors. Consider this your essential survival guidebook to making it in the wild. With it you'll learn how to outmaneuver immediate threats, find shelter and nutrition, and navigate to where you want to go. Part first aid book, part survival handbook, Surviving the Wild contains chapters of information on making the most of minimal supplies, finding safe water, and above all--survival!

Look inside and you'll find:

  • A foreword from bestselling bushcraft author Dave Canterbury
  • Survival medicine and edible plant identification
  • Instructions on how to build a fire, catch game, make a shelter, and more!


If you enjoyed survival books like Bushcraft 101, SAS Survival Handbook, How to Stay Alive in the Woods, or The Prepper's Medical Handbook, then you'll love Surviving the Wild.

"Survival instructors are akin to heart surgeons: you want the very best. Joshua Enyart is the best I know. He is truly a subject matter expert. If you are serious about survival, this book is required reading."
--Alan Kay, winner of Alone season 1 (History Channel), coauthor of Decline and Decay: Strategies for Surviving the Coming Unpleasantness

"Josh's diverse background and real-life experiences give this survival manual its extra edge. Josh covers the basics we all need to know, and then adds breadth and depth for each subject, giving the reader the option to learn what the experts know. The first aid chapter alone may save your or someone else's life. Excellent for everyone from novices to skilled instructors, this should be an active part of everyone's library."
--Nicole Apelian, PhD, veteran of two seasons of Alone on the History Channel, coauthor of A Reference Guide to Surviving Nature and The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies

"Training is important, be it for work or survival. The better your instructors, the better the training. Josh Enyart has the bona fides that prove his skills as one of the best in the business. With a background as a Green Beret, he has been there and done it under the most austere environments on Earth and survived it. That is the basis for real training. Take advantage of his mistakes and successes when it's easy, in class. Surviving the Wild is a great tool to do just that. It's a valuable addition to any survival library."
--Chris Weatherman (AKA Angry American), author of the USA Today bestselling Survivalist Series, primitive skills and modern survival techniques instructor with over thirty years experience
