Today we will review The Lost Ways book by Claude Davis. As always, in this review we will try to provide you with all the information which we think you should know about this book, discuss the pros and cons that we personally found, and in the last section explain what you need to take into consideration when making your final decision about the guide.
First of all, here are the basics…
What Exactly Is The Lost Ways?
Created by Claude Davis, a prepper for more than 30 years, “The Lost Ways” is a 350-page survival guide that shares important knowledge from the forefathers of the modern Americans that can help you survive almost any disaster, like wars, economic downfalls, and natural disasters.
The Idea behind The Lost Ways
Claude Davis believes that America is changing. Unfortunately, it’s not for the better. He says that Americans have become too complacent because of the modern conveniences readily available today that make their lives easier and more comfortable. They simply lack knowledge on how to survive once they lost these things.
Claude explains that it would highly benefit Americans if they learn the long-forgotten ways of their great grandparents and ancestors. These people were able to survive and thrive without electricity, the Internet, electronic gadgets, refrigerators, and other modern amenities.
To help Americans achieve this goal, in The Lost Ways book Claude Davis talks about many different topics that he believes people these days really need to know, and more specifically, here’s a small sample of what you can expect to learn when purchasing his guide:
- How to master the art of making poultices using ingredients that the American forefathers used.
- What you can do when there are no more bullets available, as well as the reason a certain group of people who wandered the West never ran out of bullets.
- How you can effectively collect and preserve clean water for your loved ones without spending a dime.
- How to build foolproof animal traps and tips on catching different animals during winter.
- How Native Americans built their underground house, which can easily accommodate up to four families.
- How to prepare a certain nutritious food that Native American scouts invented using common ingredients, and much more…
In addition to The Lost Ways guide, you’ll also receive two time-limited exclusive reports from Claude Davis:
#1 The “What Every Survivalist Should Grow in His Backyard” report where you’ll discover the different types of nutrient-packed and sturdiest plants you should start growing to ensure you and your loved ones have a steady supply of food during a disaster.
#2 “A Step-by-Step Guide to Building Your Own Can Rotation System” report, which will show you how to build a can rotator that can hold a minimum of 700 cans of various sizes, so you don’t have to worry about expiration dates ever again…

Now, let’s continue with our review and talk about some of the most important pros and cons of Claude’s guide…
The Pros And Cons Of The Lost Ways
Prepares You For Any Disaster
If you’re not a prepper, The Lost Ways might probably make you one. It will give you time-proven information on how to deal with different natural or man-made disasters, like drought, EMP (Electro Magnetic Pulse) attack, and economic breakdown. This book really covers many things – from growing and preserving your own food to protecting your family.
Teaches You How to Be Self-Reliant
In one of his interviews on the Survivopedia site, Claude Davis said that there are two things which differentiate the way of life of the modern Americans and their grandparents or ancestors: attitudes and expectations. While modern men are consumers, their grandparents are independent and have the “get things done” attitude.
In The Lost Ways guide Mr. Davis explains you step-by-step how to be self-reliant and have the same attitude your grandparents and ancestors had.
You Can Use The Tips Any Time
You don’t need to wait for a disaster to happen in order to benefit from The Lost Ways book. You can use many of the things you will learn from this guide for your everyday life, so you can spend less money on food, electricity, medicine, and more.
It also helps that majority of the materials recommended in the guide are readily available from your local stores or are already found in your home.
We especially love the free report that teaches you how to build your own can rotator. It’s really a great idea.
Let us ask you this question: How many canned foods have you thrown away just because you forgot about them and they passed their expiration date?
According to The Statistics Portal, the average price per unit of canned vegetables is $1.03 and $1.83 for canned fruits in 2014. A dollar may not seem much, but if you multiply that to the number of canned goods you have to throw away, you’ll probably think otherwise.
Claude Davis’ Refund Deal
If you’re not happy with The Lost Ways book, it’s good to know you can still recover your initial investment. Just send Claude and his team an email within sixty days of your purchase, and ask for a refund.
Mr. Davis promises that usually you will get your money back within 24-48 hours after you sent your request….
Application Of Knowledge
It’s nice to know how to prepare for any disaster. However, it would be better if you put what you learned into action. Don’t wait for any news of disaster to do this, because that would be too late.
What we try to say is that reading The Lost Ways guide and not taking any action won’t help you at all. You need to dedicate the required time not only to read the guide but also to apply what Claude Davis teaches you inside.
100% Digital Survival Guide
The Lost Ways guide is available only in a digital book format (eBook) for now. While this is usually not a deal breaker for most people, if you really prefer a physical book, you will need to get this printed by yourself…
The Bottom Line
Overall, we believe that The Lost Ways is a very interesting book that many modern Americans can benefit from. This is especially true if you are one of the people who are interesting to know how the Americans of the past were able to survive and thrive despite the lack of modern amenities, like electricity, gadgets, the Internet, clean water supply, home appliances, and so on.
Why should you get it?
Well, the first major reason we could think of is that it’s going to help prepare you for almost any possible disaster. The whole guide, including the bonuses, contains practical survival knowledge, and actually, you can apply what you learned from The Lost Ways on a daily basis. You absolutely don’t need to wait for any “end of the world” type of disasters.
In addition, Claude Davis is an experienced prepper himself, so we believe he’s a credible source. He actually has his own website called AskAPrepper.com, which is full of useful survival articles.
What are the main downsides of The Lost Ways book? Well, honestly, it’s quite hard to think of one. Probably the biggest con from some people will be that there’s no hard copy version of the book. We don’t really mind, but you might.
Of course, if you don’t plan to put into action what you learned, or if you’re unwilling to make adjustments in your current lifestyle, then The Lost Ways might not be for you.
On the other hand, if you are looking for a practical, useful, and cost-efficient guide that can help you to survive almost any disaster and to learn how you can have the same attitude your great grandparents and ancestors had, then The Lost Ways book can be a great choice for you.
Moreover, with Claude Davis’ full refund guarantee there is really nothing to lose…
Well, before we end this review, we’d like to leave you with this quote from Jackie Joyner-Kersee:
“It’s better to look ahead and prepare, than to look back and regret.”
If you believe in the meaning of this sentence, then you are probably going to love what you will learn in The Lost Ways guide.
That’s all for today guys. We really hope that this review was helpful for you and we wish you the best 🙂
