"In a critical situation, or in a situation that might become critical, choosing less-than-the-best action can result not only in wasted time but also in loss of comfort, loss of limb, even loss of life. That's what this little book is all about--choosing the best course of action in an outdoor emergency." --from the Introduction
Unlike Worst-Case Scenario-style books that focus on the most wildly improbable circumstances, Buck Tilton's Outdoor Safety Handbook is the real thing: a clear-cut, no-nonsense handbook from a veteran ourdoorsman and safety expert. What should you do if you encounter a bear in the wild? What if you fall through thin ice? Or run out of water? Or get sick on wild food? This handy guide provides no-nonsense information about what to do when something goes wrong in the outdoors--both emergency situations and annoying accidents--in a portable format that's easy to use in the field. Concise instruction explains exactly what to do when faced with outdoor trouble, with an emphasis on taking the best course of action right away.
