Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanna E. Henshon
What happens if you get lost in the great outdoors? While it can be wonderful to explore nature, hikers need to know what to do in the worst-case scenario. Tim O'Shei provides a detailed guide for nature lovers and hikers who yearn to explore their own backyards and nearby trails safely. The book is filled with colored illustrations of the outdoors. O'Shei also provides instructions detailing how to build a shelter, make a fire, find water, locate food, cross water, navigate, and send out rescue signals. There are also guidelines for what to do if you come across a bear, cougar, or snake. This book is concisely written and contains critical information for hikers and explorers of all ages. Whether you are going on a camping trip, climbing a small mountain, or just stepping into your backyard, this title contains a wealth of wisdom, great illustrations, and helpful hints. Readers will be drawn into this concise, well written book about survival in the wilderness; the photographs add suspense and excitement to the text. Reviewer: Suzanna E. Henshon, Ph.D.
