Creek Stewart balances the appeal, insight, intelligence, and demonstration skills of outdoorsmen like Steve Irwin and Jeff Corwin in his Weather Channel series, SOS: How to Survive. Much more than the typical reality show, Stewart takes viewers on a real outdoor how-to adventure in each hour of the series. It’s like scouting for adults (and kids, too). Eagle Scout, survival instructor, and author of more than six non-fiction survival guides, Stewart brings science into the survival discussion, often demonstrating in the simplest terms how anyone can get out of tough trials. SOS: How to Survive is now in its second season on the Weather Channel with new episodes airing Sundays at 7 p.m. Central.
And it’s not just about life-saving measures. Some of what you learn on the show may just help you get your car out of the mud in town, or get the fire going at your vacation spot when someone forgot to bring the matches. For those fans of post-apocalypse science fiction, you’ll have more knowledge after watching a few episodes of the series to challenge the next plot of your favorite TV show. Focusing on a real-life, true story tragedy including interviews with the survivors, Stewart demonstrates what was a success about the survival and what the victims could have done along the way that they didn’t think of to improve their circumstances.
Stewart has published more than a few survival guides, including pocket field guides to Survival Trees, Survival Knots, Survival Tarp Shelters, Mastering the Bow Drill, Wilderness Survival Drinks, Survival Food, and How to Survive Being Stranded in Your Vehicle. Plus he’s created a book on Survival Hacks, 365 Essential Survival Skills, a how-to Survival Kit, and he even wrote The Unofficial Hunger Games Wilderness Survival Guide.
