Note that I am not claiming to be qualified as an instructor of wilderness or survival skills or farming or anything else that is mentioned on this website (or anywhere). I myself am nothing but a (hopefully) humble student of these skills.

This website is meant as a description of what I am learning, of what I am intending to learn, and of why I am interested in learning it.

Note also that none of the information given constitutes financial advice. If you require financial advice, please see a registered financial advisor.

Any use to which you put this material is entirely at your own risk.


All of the information on this website is offered with the assumption that you and others will exercise proper caution and care in doing any of the things that are presented on this site. YOU, and ONLY YOU, are responsible for the use to which you put this material.

Some activities related to wilderness survival and self sufficiency can be dangerous if done without proper care and attention. Please be careful and attentive when engaging in any of these activities. Use common sense. Take proper precautions.

Some of the techniques shown on this website are meant solely for use in wilderness survival situations. Please note that in most places it is illegal to use these methods to capture animals unless you are actually in a survival situation. It is similarly illegal to "harvest" or otherwise disturb native plants in many locations, including within the boundaries of national parks.

Warning - Edible Weeds WARNING: Never eat plants that are growing in an area where they may have been sprayed with pesticides or herbicides (weed killers), or where the water supply to the area could be polluted, such as from urban or industrial run-off. Never eat any part of any wild growing plant unless you are certain you can identify it. Being certain means you have developed a maturity of skill in identifying plants. It does not mean you are pretty sure it looks just like "that plant you saw once on some website".

Financial Support

If you find this site helpful like a book you might have had to buy, or a workshop or course you may have had to take, please consider helping me to continue helping everyone.

It has taken me many years of unpaid time to put together the information contained in this website. If you have enjoyed and/or learned something from this website, and you would like to contribute, your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

You can view the sellers I get affiliate commissions from here.

Book Purchases

I get a percentage (I think it is about 4%) of the price of books purchased from Amazon.com via this website. I think it works for any books (or products) that they sell provided you get there from a link on this website, not just the ones I have mentioned. So (as I understand it) if you get to Amazon.com via any of the links on this website, and you search for and buy anything at all from them, some of that will go towards this website. The price to you (the buyer) is the same as otherwise. I am not expecting to make a lot of money from this (from 2006 to September 2009 it has been about $30 so far), but hopefully it will offest somewhat the hosting costs for this site.

This website is intended to be a chronicle of my own learning, my own education in sustainable living and wildnerness survival skills. My teachers, the native elders of my lineage, are the people who I have quoted throughout the site, and listed in the resources section. It is to them that the credit for the material presented on this site belongs.
