Basic Safe Travel and Boreal Survival Handbook: Gems from Wilderness Arts and Recreation Magazine, door Mors Kochanski. Een klein deel van het boek zal bekend voorkomen, maar de rest vormt een uitstekende aanvulling op “Bushcraft”, dat een minimum aan verwijzingen wijdt aan daadwerkelijk overleven, terwijl “Basic Safe Travel and Boreal Survival Handbook” (beide door Mors Kochanski) voornamelijk survival is.
“Basic Safe Travel and Boreal Survival Handbook” was compiled for outdoor educators and the Junior Forest Warden movement mostly from articles originally published in “Wilderness Arts and Recreation Magazine” that had become out of print but much sought after. Some of the articles were the basis for Kochanski's “Bushcraft.” A small fraction of the book will seem familiar but the rest makes an excellent complement to “Bushcraft” which devotes a minimum of references to actual survival while “Basic Safe Travel and Boreal Survival Handbook” is mostly survival.
Mors Kochanski is known throughout North America for his extensive work in outdoor education, survival and wilderness living. His enthusiasm for wilderness recreation, his extensive knowledge of the field, and his desire to learn everything there is to know about the wilderness has made him one of the foremost authorities on wilderness skills. Mors Kochanski has been an outdoor educator and survival instructor for over 40 years, twenty three of which as a sessional professor for the University of Alberta; a few months of which were at the Canadian Department of National Defense Survival School at Jarvis Lake, Alberta. For many years Mors instructed courses at the Blue Lake Centre run by the Alberta Department of Culture Youth and Recreation, and finally 17 years for the School District 59, at Dawson Creek, British Columbia to the benefit of thousands of elementary school children. All the while, this tireless scholar did copious research, freelanced as an instructor, and wrote numerous magazine articles for Alberta Wilderness Arts and Recreation Magazine, various popular aid-memoir booklets and the instant classic “Northern Bushcraft” (now known as Bushcraft). This is just a handful of Mors' outdoor education accomplishments to preface his new book that is published by Karamat Wilderness Ways. Today, if a course or instructor has any solid foundation in modern survival skills or Bushcraft, the odds are that they are likely based on a teaching, a skill or idea that Mors had some input in developing – whether they know it or not.
