Beyond Mere Survival:

     This book is not about how to merely survive — it about accessing great abundance, and is written by a 62-year-old Cherokee/Lakota/Northern Cheyenne elder who has LIVED these skills since he was a young boy and who grew up to teach at several universities and people of all ages.  He instructed U.S. Armed Forces units for many years, and this is his first full-length, pack-ready  outdoor textbook.

     More Valuable Than Gold features over 175 thick quality pages and 225 vibrant color photos showing step-by-step, in-depth instructions for a plethora of historical edible, utility, and medicinal uses for over 50 common plants, shrubs, trees, & vines — many which grow coast to coast all throughout North America, Europe, The Middle East, & temperate zone Asia.  Photos and introduction written by longtime student Alex “Distance” Wilson, founder of Wild Willpower, who produces the publication.
