He just handed me his favorite survival book- The Survival Handbook, Essential Skills for Outdoor Adventure by the Dorling Kindersley company. It explains both the stick and the watch method in it. Even though it’s a book for young adults/teens, it is packed with great info and good diagrams/pictures. He has several survival books, including several military manuals. He tells me this one explains things simply but thoroughly and the illustrations are great for beginners. Probably aren’t many “beginners” on this site, but I found the navigation instructions really helpful.
