Mark SuterMark Suter
Wilderness Survival Instructor

Since childhood, Mark Suter has often found himself in the great outdoors—but fortunately that’s where he’s most comfortable. For more than two decades he’s studied primitive wilderness living with the Lipan Apache tribe of south Texas, bow making with expert Jim Hamm, and survivalist techniques while serving in the US Army. But Mark also has a degree in education from Texas A&M University, and that comes in handy when he’s teaching others about wilderness survival or writing books such as his self-published Edible Wild Plants of Texas (Non-woody Species).

Knowledgeable leader. Waited a bit too long to start the walk, but he was being courteous to pre paid audience. His book is good too. Good photos and info.
