Review quote

"A classic outdoor manual. ... Written by John Wiseman, former survival instructor for Britain's elite Special Air Service (an all-conditions strike force considered by some to be tougher than the U.S. Navy SEALs), the book addresses every conceivable disaster scenario. ... Don't leave home without it."--Outside magazine
