HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! It wasn’t knock-your-socks off awesome, and it wasn’t totally a waste. Purchased it for $0.99 as a Kindle book, so I was pretty satisfied. It has a pretty rough and ready, basic decription of multiple topics. I skipped the chapters on beading and stuff like that ’cause I’m just not interested in that. It did have a small section on making bows, among other weapons, which I was interested in. I also was interested in reading the section on making shelters, not only the stereotypical ‘tipi’…

Even at the price it was disappointing.
