Review quote

"By far the best book on the subject.""--Field & Stream" "If a doctor isn't with you on your wilderness wanderings, this splendid book should be in your pack."--Nelson Bryant, "The New York Times" "I treasure my copy, and can recommend it to backpackers, mountaineers, backcountry skiers, ski patrollers, rafters, cavers, members of search and rescue groups, and all others who visit the wild places of the world."--Warren D. Bowman, Jr., M.D., Medical Adviser, National Ski Patrol; Chairman, Emergency Medical Committee, National Association for Search and Rescue "[Over the years] other excellent books on the subject have appeared, but you sure can't do any better than Dr. Auerbach has done; in terms of scope and clarity Medicine for the Outdoors remains invaluable."--" Field & Streamshow more
