Detailed Product Description

1994. 192 pp, many color ills. A complete survival manual for all terrain and situations.  Whether the reader intends to walk through the rain forest or merely contemplate doing so, McManners' effort is a treat. Color photos and drawings clarify and embellish the text's points about where to look for drinking water in various wild locales, how to use invertebrates as food, etc. (The cooking section, with its instructions on such culinary endeavors as constructing a tepee smoker for preparing meats, might prove a suitable source of projects for casual campers and scout troops.)

<P>What's more, and more entertaining, the British import is more international in scope than some similar American works. McManners considers survival not only in familiar outdoor environments but also in such extreme places as serious deserts and jungles. Nor does he focus only on land survival, for there are sections on abandoning ship and surviving at sea during extreme weather. So although it has plenty in its rich store of information and advice for the weekend camper and nature lover, the book is fit reading for the hardcore survivalist as well. Meanwhile, the merely curious will revel in the lovely pictures.   Hardcover.
