"Mark Warren is a true gift to the world of outdoor education. His lessons have sent myriads of educators into the world armed with real substance, a sense of meaningful connection, and a passion for sharing." --Nathan Roark, executive director of Buffalo Cove Outdoor Education Center, Deep Gap, North Carolina
"There is such an empowerment in having real, proven, self-tested survival skills. With Mark as your guide you feel less like you're traveling into the wilderness and more like you're coming home. The world needs this knowledge more than ever." --Cody Foor, professional martial arts instructor, Duluth, Georgia
"Mark's nature and survival skills teach the 'whole child.' Not every student loves sports or excels in academics, but those students might just find their true passion and talents hidden in nature." --Randi Schlosser, teacher/curriculum coordinator, St. Peter's Episcopal School, Red Bank, Tennessee
