Alone In The Wilderness
This is the story of Dick Proenneke. To live in a pristine land unchanged by man... to roam a wilderness through which few other humans have passed... to choose an idyllic site, cut trees and build a log cabin... to be a self-sufficient craftsman, making what is needed from materials available... to be not at odds with the world, but content with one's own thoughts and company... Thousands have had such dreams, but Dick Proenneke lived them. He found a place, built a cabin, and stayed to become part of the country. This video "Alone in the Wilderness" is a simple account of the day-to-day explorations and activities he carried out alone, and the constant chain of nature's events that kept him company.

Naked Into The Wilderness: Brain Tan Buckskin
This is the video companion to Chapter One of John & Geri McPherson's book Primitive Wilderness Living and Survival Skills. In this video the McPherson's detail the tanning process from raw skin to finished Buckskins. They explored many methods of tanning and adopted the most simple, time efficient processes they ever encountered. As with every skill they do, they look for function before art. If stuck in a real primitive situation, they want the easiest, most efficient (both for time and energy) method. 80 minutes.

Naked Into The Wilderness: Primitive Fire and Cordage
This is the video companion to Chapter Two of John & Geri McPherson's book Primitive Wilderness Living and Survival Skills. The video covers the hand drill and bow drill, plus cordage, and the bamboo fire saw. The McPherson's prefer the handdrill technique. It was the most common method of fire making by aboriginal peoples throughout the world because it is so simple. There are only two components--the drill and the hearth, sometimes from the same wood source. Under the harshest conditions, when you need fire the most, then the bowdrill is easier--assuming all the necessary materials are available. That's why cordage making is included in this video, to show you how to make functional bowdrill strings from natural materials. 100 minutes.

Naked Into The Wilderness: The Primitive Bow and Arrow
This is the video companion to Chapter Three of John & Geri McPherson's book Primitive Wilderness Living and Survival Skills. In this video John McPherson details every step of the process to make a primitive bow and arrow. The critical part of the process is understanding the basic physics of bow-making, so McPherson spends much of the video in front of the chalkboard, making diagrams that illustrate how to shape a piece of wood so that it will bend efficiently to make a bow. Once you understand these rules then you can make a bow from just about any piece of wood. Then you need an arrow. McPherson outlines the essential rules of making good arrows, and shows you how to make your own from start to finish. 115 minutes.

Naked Into The Wilderness: Deer from Field to Freezer
This is the video companion to Chapter Six of John & Geri McPherson's book Primitive Wilderness Living and Survival Skills. Using only common knives found in most kitchens, John McPherson demonstrates how to butcher a deer-sized animal from the moment of the kill all the way until the meat is wrapped and ready to put in the freezer. (Since a deer was not available at the time of filming, they used a goat instead, but the process is the same.) They show you how to skin, how to remove the sinews, and how to "debone" the animal, taking the meat off with a knife, rather than cutting through the bones with a meat saw. With this video you will see how easy it is to transform a fresh carcass into many months worth of good eating. 65 minutes.

Naked Into The Wilderness: Primitive Semi-Permanent Shelters
This is the video companion to Chapter Ten of John & Geri McPherson's book Primitive Wilderness Living and Survival Skills. Along with fire, shelter is one of the most important survival that you will need in any primitive living and/or survival situation. In this video, John spends plenty of time explaining the rules, concepts and materials of good shelter building. Then he and Geri (+ one friend) head out and make four different styles of semi-permanent homes from a variety of natural materials. Note that these are not quick, survival-type shelters you could build in a hurry, but rather these are long-term shelters, the kind that take a little more effort to construct up front to establish a quality primitive dwelling for an extended wilderness living situation. 90 minutes.

Naked Into The Wilderness: How To Construct The Asiatic Bow
By Jeff Schmidt and John McPherson. Centuries ago the Asiatic Composite Bow was used to kick butt. These were short and powerful bows that could be used with a long, heavy arrow. The bows were made with horn and sinew glued to a wooden core to make a bow capable of casting an arrow over half a mile. Jeff Schmidt has built more than two dozen of these bows. In this video he demonstrates his favorite construction techniques. The concept is so simple it will surprise you. 90 minutes.

Naked Into The Wilderness: Breaking Rock Part One
Many flintknappers can make excellent stone tools, but few can clearly explain the process. In this two hour video, the first hour is spent "in the classroom", covering the physics behind flake removal. McPherson has gone to great time and effort to demonstrate with models that explain the process of flake removal. From a visual perspective picture is worth a thousand words. He clearly illustrates how all the rules (the very basic core of flintknapping) are derived from only one basic principle of physics. Once the viewer sees how all this is tied together, he/she will advance their flintknapping techniques by light years. The second hour is spent removing flaks from a core and making a bifacial preform. Flake-by-flake you will see John McPherson unravel the secrets of flintknapping. He included in the video everything he wish he knew many years ago, when he first started flintknapping. 118 minutes.

Naked Into The Wilderness: Breaking Rock Part Two - Let's Make An Arrowhead
In the first Breaking Rock video, John McPherson demonstrates how to make a bifacial preform. In this sequel video he takes flintknapping to the next step, teaching you how to make an arrowhead from a bifacial preform. Step-by-step and flake-by-flake, McPherson takes away the mystery of flintknapping as he makes two arrowheads and shows how to overcome various obstacles. McPherson works with abo hammerstones and antlers for most of his work, plus he explains the use of copper tools for the difficult parts. The emphasis is on being able to produce functional arrowheads, not artistic points that are for show only. 60 minutes.

The Modern Survival Retreat: A New and Vital Approach to Retreat Theory and Practice
By Ragnar Benson
"A retreat is a place you go to live, not die," Benson writes. "The best defense (for the family retreat) is obscurity, unobtrusiveness and silence." Now, a fresh approach to retreat defense -- the concealed, low-profile survival retreat aimed at winning battles by avoiding them.

Modern retreaters have a new enemy to fear - our own government. In this companion to the classic book The Survival Retreat, Ragnar answers such vital questions as how to identify exactly who threatens your freedom, when to occupy your retreat and how to fight the government when it goes hard-core against you.

Cresson Kearny - Nuclear War Survival Skills
The purpose of this book is to provide Americans and other unprepared people with information and self-help instructions that will significantly increase their chances of surviving a nuclear attack. It brings together field- tested instructions that, if followed by a large fraction of Americans during a crisis that precedes an attack, could save millions of lives. The author is convinced that the vulnerability especially of Americans to nuclear threat or attack must be reduced and that the wide dissemination of the information contained in this book will help preserve peace with freedom. Underlying the advocacy of Americans learning these down-to-earth survival skills is the belief that if one prepares for the worst, the worst is less likely to happen. Effective American civil defense preparations would reduce the probability of nuclear blackmail and war. Yet in our world of increasing dangers, it is significant that the United States spends much less per capita on civil defense than many other countries. The United States' annual funding is about 50 cents per capita, and only a few cents of this is spent on war-related civil defense. Unless U.S. civil defense policies are improved, you are unlikely to receive from official sources much of the survival information given in this book.
