Author information

When it comes to survival, Rich Johnson's done a lot of it. He's worked as a demolition sergeant in the US Army Special Forces, a Coast Guard Auxiliary instructor, an EMT, a fire fighter, and a policeman. In his off hours, he's excelled as an advanced SCUBA diver, paratrooper, sailor, and skier, and survived in the desert wilderness for a year with his wife and small children--part of which involved living in a cave and eating bugs. He's written extensively for "Outdoor Life" and is the author of "Rich Johnson's Guide to Wilderness Survival."

Review quote

"Avoiding both the rigid "primitive skills" ideology and macho, military/survivalist posturing, Johnson focuses on proven, easily implemented methods to handle emergency situations in an easy, low-stress manner."----Wilderness Survival Guide
