About the Instructor

Craig Perdue has a Master’s degree in natural resources management, and a Ph.D. in philosophy, motivated to discern the justification of actions as they affect the natural world. He is also concerned with the psychological and spiritual dimensions of wilderness experience. He has spent over 15 years teaching primitive skills and bushcraft to both children and adults. He has lived for two extended periods among some of the last persisting hunter/gatherer peoples of remote Amazonian Bolivia. He practices on an ongoing basis in Michigan.
