Getting Ready for “Stay Alive!”: Book Giveaway

The design of a new survival book from John D. McCann is in full swing. While we eagerly await the Fall 2011 release of Stay Alive! Survival Skills You Need, we thought we’d give away a couple of copies of John’s previous book, Build the Perfect Survival Kit.

For your chance to win one of the books (it’s a random drawing – no merit for style, but we love to read a good story), tell us in the comments below about a time something went wrong and you wished you had an extra candy bar or bottle of water stashed nearby. Or, just say that you’d like to win a free copy of the book!

And, as always, if you can’t bear to wait or risk the randomness of the drawing, visit the Gun Digest book store and order one for yourself today.

Then, keep an eye out for Stay Alive! Survival Skills You Need, which begins by detailing the basic mindset (the “survivor mentality”) required to survive when things go awry during adventure, sport and travel, then goes on to explain the skills you need to stay alive.

John D. McCann is author of Build the Perfect Survival Kit and founder of Survival Resources, a specialized firm offering custom survival kits and survival skills courses.

Good luck in the drawing! We’ll announce the winner on Monday (June 20).

    this isn’t very gripping, but I went to work the other day and wished I had something extra, for sustenance. it was a 3 hour job that stretched into a 12-hour gig, with non stops for food!!

    I have put together a ‘bug out bag’ and also an airplane survival kit for my boss, I’d like to see if I did it correctly or what I didn’t think of.
