Survive almost anything nature throws at you with this collection of tested wilderness skills.
-Prevail against ice, cold, and hypothermia
-Scramble out of raging whitewater

Geared to the hunter or fisherman, but with something for almost everyone who loves the great outdoors, this is the book you want to be sure you throw in your backpack before heading out into any potentially sketchy situation.
