“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!
