Woodsmaster Volume 13
Desert Survival - On Foot
Hot times a' foot!
In this volume of the Woodsmaster we traveled to deserts ranging from the California Mojave Desert to the Bruneau Desert of Idaho to the beautiful desert mesas of Utah's Moab. During the course of our travels we were able to capture the essential skills of on-the-ground desert survival.
