Meet the Author

When it comes to survival, Rich Johnson has decades of experience. In the military, he was a paratrooper and demolition sergeant for the US Army Special Forces. In civilian life, he served as a Coast Guard Auxiliary instructor, and was an EMT and a fire fighter for a volunteer fire and ambulance department. In his off hours, he has excelled as an advanced SCUBA diver, a sailor, and a backcountry skier. He specializes in urban survival, emergency preparedness, and primitive living techniques, and spent a year surviving in the desert wilderness with his wife and small children—part of which involved living in a cave and eating bugs (or anything else that moved). He’s written extensively on survival topics for Outdoor Life and is the author of Rich Johnson’s Guide to Wilderness Survival.

    This new book from the editors of Outdoor Life is really neat. As someone who likes to be prepared and the daughter of an Eagle Scout, it's a great little handbook of some of the most common disasters. I really liked the first couple of articles about BOBs ("bug-out" bag). They include a list of what you should have in your emergency bag. Then the book proceeds to go through a little bit of first aid, and here's where I have my one qualm. Obviously some situations are so bad that medical attention is required, for things like fourth degree burns, but the book could explicate a little more into how to deal with these injuries if medical attention is not available. The book also misses out with arterial bleeding here. And although we may never have to deal with such things, the knowledge may come in handy some day. Otherwise, the book is really informative with great diagrams. The rest of the book goes through common natural disasters and also some useful things to know, like how to siphon fuel if need be. And it is a nice size to store with your BOB bag for reference!
