McCann has two popular books on the market, Stay Alive! and Build the Perfect Survival Kit, which is his perennial bestseller. In this video, he explains and shows his technique of “grabbing it when you can,” meaning stocking up on useful items found in the woods ahead of time instead of right when you need them.
