Maybe you’ll never have to fight off a wild pig or find water in the wild. Maybe you’ll never need to survive Hawaii’s tropical jungle and shoreline. But you never know. The Hawaiian Survival Handbook is a just-in-case bush guide for when things go wrong—from flash floods to shark attacks, from rip tides to box jellyfish.
Celebrated Hawaiian musician Brother Noland sees music as just one way to connect with his heritage and the ‘aina. A steward of the land and Hawaiian culture, Noland is also a dedicated tracker. “We are and have always been hunters, trackers, and fishermen,” he says. In The Hawaiian Survival Handbook, he shares the outdoor skills he has developed over a lifetime spent in Hawaii’s forests and waters. These essential tips and tricks will prove handy for the casual day-hiker, intrepid seashore adventurer and hardcore overnight camper alike.
