Snow Shoes & Solitude - DVD
#1
Has anyone here seen the DVD:  Snow Shoes & Solitude:  A Year In The Wabakimi Wilderness?  It is about the year beginning in 1994 that Les Stroud & Sue Jamison spend in the Canadian wilderness with no modern tools or conveniences.

Copies are apparently very difficult to obtain and priced accordingly.  What I am asking is, is this DVD worth basically a "C Note?"

Wow a 100 bucks for dvd, is that new in the wrapper?.  Sure I've paid the same for some books but a used dvd, not going to happen.....maybe someone would be kind enough loan one out, maybe you can get a copy through an inter library loan....libraries still do that kind of thing....watch snippets on youtube??

Thanks for the Amazon link, randyt.  I probably would have ran a search there before making a purchase.  Yes mjh that was a new dvd.  

But if anyone has seen it I would still like to hear from you.  Not looking for a summary, but rather a critique of the value the dvd may hold in knowledge and/or skills, if any?

I have it, it came as a bonus in les' book, survive. The book was a good one, the DVD was a good video on long term bush living.

Thanks, for the information, WFW.  Most of the review on it were good, but there were a couple of reviews which made me question purchasing the dvd.

As it is on Youtube in several five, maybe six, 9.5 minute programs, no.
