Product description

Too often travel to out-of-the-way places ends in difficulties, and most are avoidable. The key to avoiding accidents and illness is proper planning and preparation, and this book shows how that should be done. It also sets out what to do if things go wrong. This book is written by world-class experts and is full of practical tips and advice, as well as extensive details about first-aid kits, emergency procedures, and evacuation routines. There are sections on every type of travel, from desert to mountain, canoeing to diving, and off-road driving to walking. Vaccinations, medicines, and hygiene are all covered. It would be foolish for those who travel or work in remote and challenging environments not to study this book before starting off.
