Wilderness Survival. Generally speaking, "survival" falls into one of two broad categories: Staying alive until help arrives and you're rescued Living in the wilderness as a way of life The emphasis here is mostly on the second approach, although the two overlap, of course.

Wilderness Survival

The first approach would include, for example, how to utilize your vehicle for helping you to stay alive, advice on whether you should try to hike out back to civilization or not, and so on. There's very little of that kind of material here (at least so far). The focus here is on living in the wilderness in a primitive fashion. That means without guns, axes, other manufactured items, log cabins, and so on. Of course, all the material presented here can aid you in both staying alive until help arrives, as well as in living in the wilds in a primitive or semi-primitive fashion, whether it be as a hobby or in a conscious effort to live close to the land.

Survival Seeds - Advice from an Avid Gardener, by Mrs. W

Advertisements abound for survival garden seed buckets that cost upwards of $100 and promise a years supply of food for a family. Since most Americans have never grown more than a few tomato plants they are unaware that many of these claims are overblown. Anyone who has tried to produce most of their own food will tell you that things never go perfectly. There is always some blight, freak weather, or insect invasion that knocks out at least one of your main crops.
