Have you ever wondered if you have what it takes to survive in the wilderness? You aren't the only one. Shows like Man vs. Wild and Survivor are popular for a reason -- we all love adventure, and it's not difficult to imagine scenarios in which we can amaze ourselves and our companions with these life-saving skills. Even though these shows might glamorise the stranded-on-a-deserted-island fantasy we have all had, making it in the wild is no small feat. Whether you are an outdoor enthusiast or a first-time hiker, many potential dangers lurk in the wilderness, and visitors might find themselves facing unforeseen challenges. By reading this guide you are taking the first step toward making it out of any potentially harmful wilderness situation alive. We've gathered information from the best survival manuals and have spoken to numerous experts to give you the tools you will need to become a real-life survivor.

You must be aware of potential dangers ahead of time and plan appropriately. You will learn how to assess your surroundings, stay calm, develop a plan of action, and ultimately do what it takes to make it through whatever situation you may find yourself in. You will take an in-depth look into building shelter, foraging and identifying food that is safe to eat, purifying water so you do not become dehydrated, avoiding poisonous plants, animals, and other potential hazards, and many more valuable skills that might just save your life.
