A Step-by-Step Guide to Building Life-saving Structures for Every Climate and Wilderness Situation

Let’s face it, you never really know when a survival situation is going to occur. That is why it is super important to be prepared for anything that might come up. One of the main things you are going to need in an emergency is some type of shelter. What if you have no clue of how to build a shelter? You need to have a copy of “The Complete Survival Shelters Handbook” on hand before anything happens.

This extremely useful book from author, Anthonio Akkermans, teaches the reader how to build life saving shelters for any climate imaginable. Each section includes step by step photos and easy to follow instructions. Shelters described vary vastly from the simple to more complex depending on the time frame and materials you have to complete them. I love how Akkermans goes into enough detail to explain why certain types of shelters are a better option in some environments. This is a great addition to your survival library.
