The skills of survival cannot be learned by trail and error -- there are some mistakes you might get to make only once."The Outward Bound Wilderness Survival Handbook" details everything you need to know to stay alive in the wild. Topics covered include: building fires; essential survival gear -- from knives to medical supplies; constructing different types of shelters; finding and filtering water; finding common edible plants; hunting and fishing; keeping warm in cold weather; and much more.Len McDougall, a professional outdoorsman, has used these techniques in real, life-threatening situations. He blends time-honored methods of survival with modern tools, thus giving readers numerous options, whether they're well equipped or empty-handed. Clear and comprehensive, "The Outward Bound Wilderness Survival Handbook" provides an education no outdoorsman (or woman) should be without.show more
