Testimonials

“Most people in modern society live their entire lives disconnected from our rich heritage as primitive beings, just as they are separated by the glass from artifacts on display in a museum. The more our world modernizes; men like Tony become ever-more valuable because they remain mankind’s final links to experiencing our true past, to which even the best books and museums cannot begin to compare. Always the pragmatist, Tony Nester is all about low-tech functionalism – the easiest and simplest way of getting the essential tasks done right. And while his knowledge stretches deep into mankind’s history and into different cultures around the world, Tony’s classes are about survival in the here and now, and he encourages his students to be completely hands-on and physically perform each skill. You couldn’t ask for a better guide to primitive survival than Tony Nester. The rarest kind of anthropologist, Tony is one of the few with the courage to live exactly as did the ancestral people he studies, with the same tools, challenges, and fears, to know first-hand how they survived and it is the wisdom from that experience that makes him among the finest and most sought-after survival instructors in the world.” ~ Tom Sotis, Founder of AMOK!

“I would like to thank you for the course. You are very knowledgeable and your skillset is impressive. The small size of the course was helpful since we were able to get instant answers from you. Although you are very skilled you did not present the “I am holier” attitude, this made it even more pleasant to be around you. Since we were able to pick your brain with having to wonder if it was a dumb question. It was very helpful when you explained things and added the historical uses and examples to help cement the validity of the techniques. I highly recommend your course.” ~ Ramon S.

“I wanted to share what a great course I attended this past week, Ancient Pathways Desert Survival Intensive Course near Flagstaff, Arizona. I have been to Special Forces school and learned a thing or two along my 60+ years as a backpacker, military member and mountaineer however, there was much I have never tried or experienced before attending Tony’s course. I highly recommend the courses at Ancient Pathways, very well done by a true expert in primitive living, survival and bushcraft. Cheers!” ~ Bill J., From the Equipped to Survive Forum
