For more than 25 years, Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader has helped readers learn amazing things. Now, Uncle John shows you how to do things you didn’t know how to do . . . and probably should never, never, never actually do, unless you’re in a survival situation and really, really, really need to. Uncle John’s How to Fight a Bear and Win is a new approach to survival guides and how-to books. This book provides step-by-step instructions for how to make-do in any rugged terrain. But if you’re expecting "how to start a fire," think again. This isn’t the kind of book that tells you how to make a fire by rubbing two sticks together — it tells you how to make a fire using a car battery.

It also tells you:
• How to swing from a vine like Tarzan
• How to land an airplane in an emergency
• How to fight a bear . . . and win
• How to perform emergency surgery in the woods
• How to identify what insects you can — and cannot — eat
And lots, lots more.

A steel knife is ideal, but you can also use a flat tin can or a sharpened belt buckle. You’ll also need a “flint rock” (a round rock with jagged edges) and something that will serve as a “char cloth.” This can be a flat bit of charcoal from an old fire, dried tree fungus, or even paper if you have any (such as

When taken orally in conjunction with garlic, it’s reportedly effective against parasites. St. John’s wort. This five-petaled yellow flower is native to Europe, but has been introduced all over the world, growing wild in some places as an invasive weed. It can be identified by the small oil glands that dot its leaves, giving them a windowed appearance. Crushing the flower buds or seed pods produces a purplish-red liquid with strong anti-inflammatory properties. St. John’s wort also boosts the

also have other toxic compounds, such as theobromine, which can be poisonous in large doses. While the nut of the kola tree produces caffeine, its leaves produce cocaine, which probably isn’t ideal. So this whole caffeine hunt has the potential to go sideways on you. (Caffeine itself exists in plants as a natural pesticide that kills predator insects, so its very genesis is to be toxic.) • Of course, you’re much more likely to stumble on a plant that is only toxic, and caffeine-free. If you

explained to them what had happened—in Spanish—they tended to Koepcke’s wounds, got her in the boat, and drove her six miles downriver to a mill. She was quickly flown to a hospital in Pucallpa by a local pilot. They may look laid-back, but these giants can be anything but gentle. Here’s what to do if you ever encounter one when it’s having a bad day. • A full-grown “bull male” moose weighs in at around 1,000 pounds and stands seven feet tall. Toss in a pair of heavy antlers and you’re looking

When you’ve mastered the bow and arrow to the point where you could survive a Hunger Games, give one of these less conventional wilderness weapons a try.
