Shows like Man vs. Wild and Survivor are popular for a reason - we all love adventure. Whether you are an outdoor enthusiast or a first-time hiker, many potential dangers lurk in the wilderness. By reading A Complete Guide to Surviving in the Wilderness, you are taking the first step toward making it out of any potentially harmful wilderness situation alive. We've gathered information from the best survival manuals and have spoken to numerous experts to give you the tools you will need to become a real-life survivor. Because an emergency in the wilderness presents its own set of unique circumstances and challenges, it's imperative you know how to help yourself and others. You will learn how to assess your surroundings, stay calm, develop a plan of action, and ultimately do what it takes to make it through whatever situation you may find yourself in. You will take an in-depth look into building shelter, foraging and identifying food that is safe to eat, purifying water, avoiding poisonous plants, animals, and other potential hazards, and many more valuable skills that might just save your life. There is also detailed information on first aid, climate-specific conditions to know and look out for, navigation, and much more.
