ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS 
 The greatest influence on my career as a student, instruc-tor and writer about wilderness living skills and survival,has been without question, Tom Roycraft of Hinton, whosemany years of experience and incisive insights have lentconsiderable force to my bush knowledge.Another important person is Don Bright of Edson, withwhom I published the W!derriess
Arts and Recreation 
magazine. The magazine motivated me to produce a work-ing volume of written material that forms the basis for thisand future books.I am grateful to the publisher Grant Kennedy, who pro-vided the encouragement that resulted in this book becom-ing available now rather than ten years from now.
