Nope. Might be down at the bookstore here. Don't recall seeing it right now. Have to go to the Nature and the Sports sections to see if its there. Yes there are primitive skills, survival, etc. in the Sports section. I found out I was missing a lot of other books by just going in the Nature section. lol
I am sure there is probably other good stuff in the book and maybe its just the title, but I don't really need to know how to defecate in the woods. Been doing that since I was out of diapers. Nobody had to tell me how but maybe some folks do. Get some grape vine leaves or other wide non-toxic leaves like Maple, etc. or even bundles of grass (just make sure you shake all the bugs, spurs, burrs, ect. out and don't use sawgrass), dig a hole next to a tree with a stick, then cover when done.
The Romans used a sponge on a stick and running water in the public latrines. I read somewhere that before paper here in the US, folks used old corn cobs for wiping their backside in the outhouse. Ouch. Then came paper and the Sears catalog. lol Eventually the Englishmen John Harrington invented, Joseph Bramah patented the water closet, and then Thomas P. and George Crapper gave us the Crapper or updated version of what is known as the toilet but patent for the siphonic flush was Albert Giblin.
I can recall visiting the Biltmore mansion in Asheville, NC open to the public. There was an antique water closet rather than a toilet there in the old mansion in a small room by itself. It was a tall and thin upright unit built into the wall. It had a water hole for washing the backside and a hole in the bottom. It also had a chain at the top with the sign "DO NOT PULL". Every little kid that came along pulled it anyway. The parents were useless as parents. The water closet was disconnected and didn't work anyway but it was an antique they were trying to preserve. Maybe they should have put a cage around it. lol The old mansion also had an indoor swimming pool.
Modern conveniences back then I'm sure.
