New TRAIL SAFE Copies Now Available!

The new TRAIL SAFE books are now available for $19.95 plus S&H!!! Click on the link on the right-hand side of the page to go to the Flying Dragon sales site. If you're an NRA member, we've got an even better deal for you.

TRAIL SAFE was a fascinating project for me, the first time I applied the lessons I'd learned from a decade in very high risk sports to what I knew about personal defense training. Working with Wilderness Press I wanted to put together a book aimed at people — especially women — who spend time hiking, camping, fishing, hunting...anything that takes people into the backcountry.

The most important parts of the book are the tools for understanding risks and awareness, avoiding escalation and understanding the fundamentals of a "decision tree." Those elements are independent of where they're exercised and form the basis for my hit television series, THE BEST DEFENSE.

TRAIL SAFE received spectacular reviews (I've included some in this edition). I was even more honored with some of the calls I received after the book had been published, including one from a top military trainer who said the book was "the best description of how the mind functions under potentially lethal stress" he'd ever read. So much so that it was now required reading for his students.

When TRAIL SAFE went out-of-print, copies sold for as much as $60+ on the auction sites, and as recently as a month ago Amazon was quoting almost $50 for a used copy. This edition includes an all new introduction from me, plus I went through and cleaned up some issues I had with the Wilderness Press, including the nitwit disclaimer from WP that they didn't believe in guns...I, of course, do believe in guns. It took a while to clear up ownership issues and get the book back in print (with a more descriptive title, TRAIL SAFE: How to Avoid Danger in the Backcountry, and a much, much better looking cover!).

I would strongly recommend this book as a gift to a friend, Spousal Unit or anyone who feels a little uncertain about defending themselves or needs a good basic grounding in what we believe. If you've been watching TBD, TRAIL SAFE is a good companion book.

You can read an excerpt from TRAIL SAFE here

Coming up in late summer this year, a companion TRAIL SAFE DVD on choosing, training with and carrying firearms in the backcountry — a major expansion of THE BEST Defense episode with lots of specific and useful information.

And thank you all for your support!

Thanks Michael!
One of my biggest regrets at missing the NRA Convention this year, was getting a chance at a signed copy of the book.
Now you made my day!

I have the original copy (though I didn't pay through the nose for it). Is there enough new that I should spring for this?
