Unlike some safety books that focus on wildly improbable circumstances, this handbook is the real thing: a clear-cut, no-nonsense guide on what to do when faced with outdoor trouble. What should you do if you encounter a bear? What if you fall through thin ice? Or run out of water? Or get sick on wild food? This handy guide gives you the best course of action – for both emergency situations and annoying accidents – in a format that's easy to use in the field.
