Whether you are looking to brush up on your outdoor skills, are preparing for a thrilling and adventurous ecotour or excursion, or are an experienced hiker, camper, or otherwise, this book is for you. Outdoor survival techniques for each of the earth's ecosystems are covered and each environment provides its own set of skills, observations, and steps to not only survive, but also enjoy that environment. A basic set of skills (shelter, food, defense, and first aid) and how tos (fire starting, rope making, trapping, and more) are also included that can be used anywhere from the local park to a multi-day hike in Asia. A must for any seasoned excursionist or beginner gearing up for the outdoors.
