The Survival Handbook

Title The Survival Handbook: Essential Skills for Outdoor Adventure
Auther DK Publishing (Author), Colin Towell (Contributor)

This is a very comprehensive book that covers equipment, techniques, and mental attitudes needed for survival. It contains practical advice for almost any situation that you might encounter outdoors. In addition to “normal” preparedness topics it includes sections for kayaks, canoes river crossings, making snow shoes, improvised camps, hygiene, fire, reading terrain and weather, and a host of other topics. I recommend this book as a good reference for survival topics and for exception situations.


From planning an expedition, to packing essential kits, to discovering what to do on a trail, The Survival Handbook is an invaluable tool when you’re in the great outdoors.
Among a myriad of outdoor skills, it teaches readers how to make shelters, find water, and spot, catch, and cook wild food. And if there’s an emergency, it shows which essential first-aid techniques to use when, how to mount a rescue, and even how to get yourself found. Now in Paperback!
