Mors Kochanski’s enthusiasm for wilderness recreation, his extensive knowledge of the field, and his desire to learn everything there is to know about the wilderness has made him one of the foremost authorities on wilderness skills in the world.
In a time when much of today’s literature is a regurgitation of skills and repackaging of methodology, The Grand Syllabus is as original as Kochanski’s highly acclaimed book, Bushcraft. An “all inclusive” syllabus of topics once taught now and again by Mors Kochanski at the University level and in his Extended Summer and Winter Courses and the Survival Instructor Trainee Program.
The Grand Syllabus is a compilation derived from the four courses (The Introduction of Outdoor Education, Cold Weather Outdoor Living Skills, Warm Weather Outdoor Living Skills and Primitive Pioneering and Natural Crafting) he taught for the Faculty of Physical Education, The University of Alberta, Edmonton for 23 years.
Truly complimentary to the informative material he has already produced, this syllabus is what Mors would say is a list of specific skills you would need to become a well-rounded instructor. As a whole, it is a compilation of wilderness knowledge and skills of special interest to instructors would be instructors and serious students. While not intended for the beginner, should they decide to purchase, they will have a longtime reference in which to grow.
