Life out at the edges can be rough, scary and, at times, dangerous. Campfire Tales From Hell is a collection of essays from people who have been there, done that -- some of whom had to fight for their title of ‘survivor.’ Some are professionals, calmly going to work knowing a bad day means someone dies -- and that ‘someone’ could be them. Others came through by being smarter, more aware, better trained or just having it more together than the other 'team.' Some of the authors looked into the abyss and spit in its eye when it looked back. Still others were normal people thrown into extraordinary circumstances.

Campfire Tales is not a collection of macho stories. It's a primer for what you'll need to know to make it out on the edge. It's what to remember when you're dealing with dangerous people and difficult situations. It's what attitudes, knowledge and perspectives you'll need to get through. It's 'what I wish someone had told me when I started.' It's how Hollywood and fiction can -- and will -- get you killed or thrown into prison. It's what you need to know to fill the holes in your self-defense or defensive tactics training. In a different direction, writers can learn from the people who actually do what they're writing about. But most of all, Campfire Tales From Hell is a collection of stories and wisdom that tells you, 'you too can get through.'
