Description
"If you pursue any form of outdoor recreation for any length of time in primitive surroundings, you are likely to become lost or stranded at some time. What stands between you and ultimate disaster is a knowledge of the basic elements of survival, your common sense, and your own ingenuity." "Nature is never hostile, only indifferent. Odds are that you will not be torn apart by wild animals, you will not starve to death, you will not freeze to death, and you will not suffer undue hardship unless you are both careless and stupid." "Life's necessities are all around you, but they are not prepackaged with detailed, useful instructions. A Handbook for Wilderness Survival provides the how-to manual to tip the scales toward life in any survival situation. The single biggest threat is fear itself and all such fears are baseless." "A Handbook for Wilderness Survival tells you how, in any situation, you can build a fire and keep it going; construct a weatherproofed shelter out of available materials; find and prepare food and water; avoid hypothermia and dehydration; deal with severe distress signals; and make basic workable tools." "It tells you what to include in your emergency kit, without which you will soon learn to feel naked." "It encourages you to experiment in your back yard and make each and every trip into the field an imaginary survival test." "Your life is important only to you in a survival situation and you alone will decide by the actions you take how well you will live."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
