Notes:
A backpack-sized guide to getting started, equipment, getting around, camping, and emergencies. Color photos and illustrations. It is intended for world-wide use, so while it identifies some edible plants and dangerous animals, the few species included are from so many areas that those sections are not useful except as a general warning. Other sections, on survival and equipment for instance, are more generally useful. 160p.
