Testing one's ability to survive unaided in the wilderness -- be it in moors, mountains, deserts, forests, or at sea -- is becoming an increasingly popular pursuit. "The Outdoor Survival Handbook" approaches the subject for the everyday reader who has an interest in adventure travel, becoming self-sufficient, and pitting himself against Nature.

The book explains how to prepare for a trip into the wilderness anywhere in the world, be safe once there, and make it back in one piece. Illustrated with superb photographs, step-by-step diagrams, and detailed graphics, it covers such topics as orienteering and navigation skills, respect for wildlife (from ants to bears), meeting essential water and food requirements, building a shelter, and surviving life-threatening situations.

From packing the right gear to developing skills that were second nature to our ancestors, this safety-conscious and environmentally friendly reference is perfect for trekkers, backpackers, and all such adventure travelers.
