When it comes to survival, the only things you’re qualified for right now are the office and the always looming zombie attack. Sooner or later we all have to come to the realization that we’ll never be Les Stroud (or even Bear Grylls) and pick up some skills so we’re ready when it all goes to shit. Colin Towell’s Survival Handbook will teach you how to survive in a jungle filled with bears instead of the one filled with douchebags that you’ve become accustomed to – and it does it with specially commissioned, step-by-step illustrations so you don’t even have to worry about the fine print.

 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.
