The Lost Ways by Claude Davis - Review

In today’s technologically hyper-charged day and age, we have forgotten ancient secrets that our ancestors relied upon in order to survive.

Many of the techniques and survival methods they used are pure genius, but only a fraction of our planet still utilize them or are even aware they exist.

Amusingly, a lot of medicinal plants are often right under our noses, but virtually all of us are oblivious to them!

This article will take an in-depth look at one of the most popular survivalist products out there – The Lost Ways, by Claude Davis.

As we always aim to at TheSurvivalSpirit.com, we’ll set forward an honest review, showing what you’re going to get and to help you decide if the product is a good fit for you.

What is The Lost Ways?

The Lost Ways is an encyclopedia of hidden survival techniques, recipes and inventions that could save your family during a natural disaster, or even just allow you to explore your passionate survivalist personality!

These techniques cover an enormous spectrum, ranging from how to preserve clean water for huge periods of time, right the way through to building spacious underground houses.

The book comes in both printed and digital formats and truly contains a plethora of wisdom.

After looking through the material ourselves, we felt like we were looking inside the mind of an old, ancient wizard who had all of nature’s elements at his command!

The Lost Ways spans over 350 pages, so you get plenty of information for your money, here. It’s well structured, visually stimulating and most importantly, clear and informative.

Who is Claude Davis?

Claude Davis is a popular survivalist and prepper who brings you over 30 years of hands on experience in the field.

Our gross disconnection with the roots of our ancient ancestors and what they stood for deeply troubled Claude.

Therefore, he decided to create this wonderful guide in the hope of inspiring others to re-connect with our core spirituality and deepest instincts.

Claude realises that not only is our general inability to survive alarming, (should the worst happen), but is also aware that our mental health and well being is at an all time low, due to our highly stressful, modern way of living.

Davis really strips everything back in his book to bring to right back to roots of makes us tick as human beings.

What am I Going to Get?

The Lost Ways really does overdeliver in the wealth of information that it provides, which we always love to see!

The breadth of survivalist knowledge is varied and tasteful, as well as entertaining. Here’s a brief list of some of the topics that the book will cover…


Learn how to collect and store water for FREE. During natural disasters and wars, clean water is a rarity, so being able to harness this key building block of life is of paramount importance.

The Lost Ways is worth all the money (plus more!) just for this chapter alone.


Who says being a survivalist is boring when it comes to the kitchen?

Prepare the delicious, nutritional food that our ancestors ate! With Claude’s recipes, you will find a joy in simplicity; gathering readily available ingredients and cooking practical food to eat on a daily basis or in the height of a pandemic.

Shelter and Protection

Ever wanted to build an underground bunker or storage cellar? Well, now you can!

Claude teaches the principals utilized by the old masters of our past, particularly the native Americans and sets forward clear step by step instruction on building shelter designed to stand up in the toughest of all conditions.

He also provides information on how to preserve your bullet supply during a crisis, as well as supplying practical solutions if the worst happens, and you run out.


At the beginning of this article, we touched upon the fact that a variety of medicinal plants are often right under our noses!

The Lost Ways will teach you how to harness the power of these plants and create your own poultices.

Often, we find that survivalists are great on the prepping and food storage front, but lack the life-saving know how in the case of a medical emergency or illness.

People are often surprised to find how simple it actually is to create your own poultices.

Claude will walk you by the hand in creating these old, lost remedies – you’ll feel like one of the ancient Egyptians is beside you, guiding you to a new medicinal haven!


This section won’t be to everyone’s tastes, but setting up animal traps during periods of food shortages could be the difference between life and death.

The Lost Ways will walk you through setting up your very first trap, lead you through a variety of capture techniques and teach you how to properly deal with your catch.

Of course, we’d need almost a whole website to give you the full list of what’s on offer in this book! This should, however, get you excited about what’s in store. We think you’re going to love it!

Downsides to The Lost Ways

It seems only fitting that this book retains its traditional elements and is only available in written formats!

Unfortunately, for those that love video, this is an opportunity missed by Claude, as the content isn’t available via this medium.

We may suggest this to Mr Davis, however, as we feel it would appeal to a greater audience.

The product still over-delivers as a book though – everything is there you need to know and it is still very well presented.

How Much is it?

The Lost Ways costs just $37, which is an exceptional price for the wealth of information available.

If you choose the digital delivery option, you’ll be emailed the download link immediately after your purchase and will have instant access to the product.

The transaction is handled by Clickbank, one of the world’s leading payment processors, so you can have confident in your purchase.

The product owner also gives a generous 60-day money back guarantee, so if you are not absolutely happy with your purchase, you will receive a full refund.

After speaking to the product owner, we found out that The Lost Ways does have very low refund rates, which speaks volumes about the quality of the book.

Overall Rating - 9/10

Our reliance on mainstream technology is a great cause for concern and we should all reflect upon how long we could survive without it.

Claude Davis really strips our humanity back to its rawest form in The Lost Ways, providing lifesaving survival instruction, suitable for both in preparation of and during a disaster of any kind.

To be honest, it’s just so darn interesting!

I’ll bet even those who have no interest in survivalism or the great outdoors would find it a fascinating read too!

Overall, we decided to rate The Lost Ways at 9/10 for our review.

Not only did it contain a lifetime’s worth of wisdom, but it was thoroughly entertaining and engaging.

If you’re looking for a “go to” encyclopedia for all of your survival needs, then look no further!
