If there was one thing John Wayne admired, it was someone who could stand on their own two feet and take care of themselves no matter what the day might bring. He was also a lover of the outdoors, and understood the challenges that come with living in the wild. It was a point of pride with Duke to play so many pioneers and explorers in his films – people with the skills that enabled them to master a life on their own far from the edges of civilization.

With that in mind, the editors of The Official John Wayne Magazine are proud to publish The Official John Wayne Handy Book of Bushcraft – just the thing you need to prepare for a safe, satisfying backcountry trip. It features 100 tips and techniques for surviving in the wild. You'll find detailed step-by-step guidelines for:

- Finding or building tools and supplies to help you face whatever the wild may throw your way
- Capturing, collecting and cooking food
- Protecting yourself from harsh weather, extreme temperatures and unfriendly wildlife
- Navigating by the stars, the sun and the wind

Written by Billy Jensen, a former Green Beret, and Check Freedman, coauthor (with Jensen) of Survival Ready, the Handy Book of Bushcraft provides the information you need to prepare for any wilderness situation and respond to the unexpected with confidence and skill.
