About the author:
John" Arizona Bushman" Campbell is a former Desert Survival Instructor from Arizona. He has been into wilderness survival since the age of 8. He grew up in Oklahoma in a small town called Holsum Valley. During heavy rains and ice storms he and his family would be trapped for weeks at a time. Hunting, fishing, trapping, and gardening became a way of life. The family would even raise their own food animals for sustainment during these hard times.

At age 11 he joined the Boy Scouts. He was active with them for five years and moved onto the Explorer Scouts. There were always plenty of outings and opportunities to be outdoors. Learning Wilderness Survival Skills were always a key note on these outings. Growing up he also had a lot of Native American friends from the Cherokee and Choctaw Tribes. They would hike and camp for days on end practicing ancestral skills. Snakes, fish, bugs, and wild edibles were on the menu. Nights were spent in a natural shelter.

After graduating from high school in 1995 he traveled to Louisiana and Mississippi practicing Swamp Survival Skills, he practiced there for 6 months. He spent a year in Galveston and traveled to Gulf Shores, Alabama studying Coastal Survival Skills. In 1998 he moved to Arizona. In 2003 he took formal training from one of the countries top instructors. He has been practicing desert survival and primitive skills ever since.
