    DescriptionCody Lundin, director of the Aboriginal Living Skills School in Prescott, Arizona, shares his own brand of wilderness wisdom in this highly anticipated new book on commonsense, modern survival skills for the backcountry, the backyard, or the highway. This is the ultimate book on how to stay alive-based on the principal of keeping the body's core temperature at a lively 98.6 degrees. In his entertaining and informative style, Cody stresses that a human can live without food for weeks and without water for about three days or so. But if the body's core temperature dips much below or above the 98.6 degree mark, a person can literally die within hours. It is a concept that many don't take seriously or even consider, but knowing what to do to maintain a safe core temperature when lost in a blizzard or in the desert could save your life. Lundin delivers the message with wit, rebellious humor, and plenty of backcountry expertise. Watch naturalist Cody Lundin on "Dual Survival" as he uses many of the same skills and techniques taught in his book: 98.6 Degrees: The Art of Keeping Your Ass Alive. As seen in the 10-part series "Dual Survival" on The Discovery Channel! Cody Lundin and his Aboriginal Living Skills School have been featured in dozens of national and international media sources, including Dateline NBC, CBS News, USA Today, The Donny and Marie Show, and CBC Radio One in Canada, as well as on the cover of Backpacker magazine. When not teaching for his own school, he is an adjunct faculty member at Yavapai College and a faculty member at the Ecosa Institute. Cody is the only person in Arizona licensed to catch fish with his hands, and lives in a passive solar earth home sixty miles from Prescott, Arizona.

  • Essential survival book4

    Nathanael Boehm The first half of this book is about survival psychology and physiology, mostly regarding regulating your core body temperature to avoid the detrimental and often fatal effects of exposure, specifically hyperthermia and hypothermia. Also goes into hydration and acclimatisation. Cody is clearly knowledgeable on the subject and comes across rather scientific and delves into the synthesis of ATP, storage of glycogen & insulating properties of nylon vs polyester but there are no citations so we just have to trust his credibility. More than you ever wanted to know on the subject, but it's what you need to know. by Nathanael Boehm
