Wilderness survival author Gary L. Benton releases his new Survival Guide. This guide is not just for hunters, fishermen, or hikers, but for the whole family.
ÂThis book has taken me years to write. It is primarily a collection of articlesÂmany have been published previously in some of North AmericaÂs best outdoors publications (Modern Survival Magazine, Buck Masters, Big Game Hunt, Wonderful West Virginia Magazine, Back Home Magazine, Family Camping Magazine and others). In these articles, you will discover some great general family camping information.
ÂThis survival and outdoors guide is for your enjoyment (and to get you thinking about nature). I have over forty years of wilderness outdoors experience and I have camped in various states and many different countries, as well as under some very extreme weather conditions. I have slept in the jungles in the Philippines Islands, the frozen arctic north of Alaska, and the blistering deserts of Arizona and New Mexico, so I feel my knowledge base is extensive.
ÂSome of my writing is just plain camping (even with the kids)Âfun, fishing, hiking, or hunting information. We have added these articles to make the guide more enjoyable for those folks who may be looking for general wilderness information and want to share what they learn with a child.
ÂSimple Survival is for those families and individuals who wish to improve or learn emergency survival skills. I do not support radical survivalist movements in any way.Â

ÂI consider myself very lucky to have had Gary Benton as my egress/ejection and survival instructor when I was in the United States Air Force in the mid 1970is. I personally know of at least four people who survived to fly another day due to his training. The sign of a true survival professional is one who keeps you alive and this man does it! Gary is no armchair survival expert, but a real hands on individual and this guide can make a serious difference in a life and death situation.Â
