When it comes to survival preparation, there are a lot of books out there to choose from. So, why should you choose this one over the rest of the pack?
The Lost Way has become a staple for survivalists and preppers. It’s a collection of tips and best practices from survival experts, who were able to survive for months without the luxuries most of us take for granted. And although the book is popular in the “prepper” community. It’s really something that everyone can benefit from reading.
With that being said, what exactly can you expect from reading The Lost Ways?
The Lost Ways Book: Lessons For You
You’ll get tips on creating a hidden shelter, a temporary one or one that blocks certain elements such as a major wind, rain or snow storm. You can find out what sort of food you need to gather and keep in storage for an apocalyptic event. You will be able to create a bunker that will allow you to survive long after, most people have died of starvation or disease after an apocalypse.
Let’s dive a little deeper.
To start, the book includes tips from Patrick Shelley, who lived int he woods for years (while still earning a living). And he wasn’t surviving off of takeout. He had to learn how to hunt, and he shares his expertise on how to satisfy your hunger in desperate times. For instance, he included a chapter on how to trap a beaver or muskrat by setting up traps in nature.
This is a crucial skill to master because in times of despair the saying “you eat what you kill” becomes a reality.
Another important skill you’ll take away from The Lost Ways is water preservation. Most of us (particularly in developed countries like the U.S) take clean water for granted. When the water system shuts down and all the bottled water runs out, you need to know how to avoid dehydration.
If you think you can just go to the nearest lake or river with a bucket and drink up, you really need to read The Lost Ways. In the book, Shannon Azares shares water preservation technique. Old-time sailors used to get clean water that lasted for years.
Luckily we have some modern advancements that make the process a little easier. But the technique Azares gives in The Lost Ways will ensure you have a huge supply of water, that’s safe to drink for months or even years.
The Lost Ways is a Must Read For Survivalists & Everyone Else
The last interesting piece we want to share about this book is the section on medicine since this is usually something that gets overlooked even by seasoned survivalists. When resources are all tapped out in a crisis, medicine is often one of the first resources that gets depleted. Think of all the different antibiotics we take when we have any type of illness. What happens when those are all gone?
Well, in The Lost Ways, trained chemist Susan Morrow teaches The Art of Poultice. We won’t dive into the specifics of it (you really have to read about this for yourself in the book). But essentially it’s using resources found in nature to relieve inflammation, soreness, and other conditions. Trust us, this will come in handy if you ever find yourself injured in a crisis and don’t have access to modern medicine.
Overall, it’s not too difficult to see why The Lost Ways have been a staple in the survivalist world for so long. It’s essentially a handbook on how to survive in a crisis. Whether you choose to live off the grid or you just want to know how to survive in an emergency. The Lost Ways will teach you everything you need to know.
