"It isn’t everyone who can step into the woods armed with nothing more than a pocket knife and their own wits and have the skills needed to survive. Chad Clifford is one of the few true remaining wilderness men – possessing the skills and knowledge to not only make primitive weapons and natural cordage, but also start a fire, track animals and build primitive shelters."
