Forget Bear Grylls. It’s author Neil Strauss who will teach you the survival skills required to navigate the 21st century. After the last few years of violence and terror, of ethnic and religious hatred, of tsunamis and hurricanes – and now of world financial meltdown – the author, like most of his generation, came to the sobering realization that, even in America, anything can happen. At its simplest, “Emergency” is the story of a dangerous world and how to stay alive in it.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
