IMG_1372Extreme Survival Meat: A Guide for Safe Scavenging, Pemmican Making, and Roadkill
by Tamarack Song

Whether you are faced with an extreme survival situation, or you’re simply wanting to obtain animals without hunting or trapping, this book will show you how to find, process, and preserve meat without anything but a knife. You’ll learn how to safely assess an animal carcass to determine whether it’s safe to eat – a vital skill that could save your life. There are also special sections on roadkill and making pemmican – the most nourishing and long-lasting survival food.

The instructions contained within this book are well tested, and easy to follow, as Tamarack and his family have lived for over forty years almost exclusively on scavenged meat and hand-caught fish. In an extreme survival situation, this is one book you don’t want to be without. It belongs in every backpack, glove compartment, and survival kit, so it will be there when you need it.

Available at in paperback and on Kindle.

Native Life Way Booklets
Author: Tamarack Song

From practical crafts and skills to child rearing and the quest for self-knowing, Tamarack’s writings span the spectrum of Native lifeway. He has nearly 30 books worth of material, which are now being prepared for publication. In the meantime, people are asking for guidance on vital topics. In order to meet the need, we are making some of Tamarack’s unpublished materials available as self-published booklets, in both hand-bound printed versions and e-books. When the material appears in published book form, the booklets will be discontinued.
