"I am an assistant scoutmaster for a high-adventure scout troop in Texas. This is the best single-tape survival video I have seen. We have watched it several times in our scout meetings, and each time we come away with something new that we learned. Unless you are looking for a multi-tape detailed surval video series, this is the tape to have. Also it fits the scout survival merit badge curriculem exceedingly well."
A great place to start

"I enjoyed this DVD. It was simple but you need to watch it more than once to get everything down. The fire making processes were in my opinion the most informative. I only wish that they spent more time on food gathering practices. This is a great compliment to the wonderful book Field Guide to Edible Wild Plants : Eastern and central North America (Peterson Field Guides). It can be found here at Amazon as well. This DVD is helpful for the avid primitive camper or the paranoid traveler that fears crashing in a remote area. Learn and enjoy!"
A lot of great info, NOT boring

"I love learning, so wanted to see what people really do when in a pinch. This gives several ways to get shelter, make a fire, signal for help (mirrors work further distances then lights or smoke in daylight), some basics on injuries, sample of what foods to eat & which to avoid & more. They show you what you need in a kit or what to use in nature including some indigenous methods. I surprisingly wasn't bored at all & like another said, there's so much info, I will watch again to soak it in more."
Not that great

"I write this having some prior camping/adventure expieriences over the years and I got this dvd thinking it would be a good refresher "course". Although it covered all of the basic concerns of survival, it was not very organized and all topics left out details that could be important. I would like to see (or even make) a series of dvd's that show a survival expierience in detail involving different environments. Survivorman is a good concept (and is entertaining) but he could take that a step further in details. I think this dvd could be a good boy scout resource, but it was not for me. I will probably try to resell it."
