It includes expert advice on:

  • Building a fire
  • Finding food and water
  • Using ropes and tying knots
  • Mountain survival
  • Concealment techniques

  • And much more

By outlining specific survival threats found at sea, in the desert, in mountain terrain, and in arctic conditions, and offering techniques on surviving them, this book is invaluable to both the casual outdoorsman and the extreme sports enthusiast, as well as anyone looking for insight into the training tactics of the U.S. Air Force.
