Synopsis: Essential survival advice from a former U.S. Army Intelligence Corps Officer and the world’s preeminent expert in preparedness.

For years, James Wesley, Rawles has lived a self-sufficient lifestyle along with his family on a property surrounded by National Forest. In his earlier bestselling nonfiction book, How to Survive the End of the World as We Know It, Rawles outlined the foundations for survivalist living. Now, he details the tools needed to survive anything from a short-term disruption to a long-term, grid-down scenario.

Here, Rawles covers tools for every aspect of self sufficient living, including:

• Food preservation and cooking
• Welding and blacksmithing
• Timber, firewood, and lumber
• Firefighting
• Archery and less-than-lethal defense tools
• And more...

Field-tested and comprehensive, Tools for Survival is a must-have reference for anyone who wants to know how to prepare for the worst.
