Hawke's Green Beret Survival Manual
#1
[Image: 6-Hawkes-Green-Beret-Survival-Manual.jpg]


I really like Myke Hawke (and his wife) and have enjoyed his Survival shows.  He has a very good way of teaching and I like his style.  I just purchased his book in Kindle format and I'm reading it now.  I'll do a 'running' review as I go through it.

From his introduction you can tell he's walked the walk from his youth up.  One of the things in his introduction is worth passing on and I'll do a quick synopsis of it:

  • Fire - Know how to make fire in at least one way with sticks only.
  • Shelter - Know how to make one type of shelter from scratch without tools.
  • Water - Know how to get water with no tools in at least one way in your A.O.
  • Food - Know how to make at least one simple trap.
  • Plants - Know at least three edible plants in your area.

That's something to work on.

Yeah, I agree on Hawke. I like his style and he seems to be a good guy. I wish the show with his wife was still on, it was the one show of that type that my wife liked.

Look for/at Ragnar Benson's books.'08.
If you look like food,you will be eaten.


I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

I've actually traded some emails with him on Facebook. Cool guy. I got my GF to watch 'man woman wild' with me, and we were both really amused by how he dotes on his wife (in a good way).. My gf has been requesting to watch more of them Wink

You can also watch them both on 'Lost Survivors' on youtube.  Too me it was basically MWW season 3 and I enjoyed it quite bit.  I'd love to see them on a survival show again.  He's got a lawsuit on Discovery for all of their shenganigans.
