Why Primitive Skills?
Humanity lived by using these skills for hundreds of thousands of years. It is only in the relatively short past that they have been abandoned by most cultures, considering them primitive and inferior. I hope you’ll see that these skills are anything but inferior, but really quite ingenious. Modern people may scoff, siting the marvels of technology, but without technology where would we be? Most people have no idea how anything works or their knowledge is limited to one or two specialties. Most people could not survive if our modern tools were taken away. Primitive skills give you a freedom, whether you want to feel safer in your outdoor activities or whether you see there is real potential to need them to survive in the future.
