It would be extremely naïve to think this way, as there are huge swathes of land, all over the planet that are uninhabited for many miles around.
We’ve built and colonized, concreted and tarmacked much of the world and we aren’t likely to stop, but that does not mean that the time will never come where survival skills might mean the difference between life and death.
Any number of conceivable scenarios might occur to you at some point in your life and being prepared for them can assist you in both surviving the ordeal and damage limitation.

If you remember anything from this book, remember a motto that is used by armed forces and survival experts across the globe:
