I have always been fascinated with stories about survival.  I think part of it comes from many of the books I read growing up, where the heroes or heroines would find themselves in some unlikely situation where they had to survive in the wild.  Tom Corbet was stranded on Mars; The Swiss Family Robinson landed on a deserted island; The boy in Hatchet crashed in the wilderness; Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys, Trixie Belden, Meg, and The Boxcar Children all ran into situations constantly; and the Boy Scouts, Young Engineers, and Outdoor Chums series are about surviving as much as they are about the stories.  A lot of older craft books for young people also feature projects, like this tuna can burner, that are intended for camping, or keeping on hand for survival situations.  I think they are fun to make.   Continue Reading Tuna can burner…
