School Library Journal
YA-- A handbook that covers eight major fields relevant to YAs seeking careers in the outdoors or in related areas. Included are where the jobs are, how to find the right one, descriptions, salary information, entry-level requirements, and employment outlook. Each chapter contains commentary by professionals involved in civil engineering, veterinary science, landscape architecture, commercial diving, etc. An accessible, well-organized guide for career collections.

According to Shenk, individuals choose outdoor careers because they like communing with nature and do not see income as their first priority. Her book is an excellent starting point for information and guidance. Profiles of men and women (in equal balance) in the various fields follow the job descriptions. Resources are found at the end of each section. Appendixes include job listings, sources of labor, market information, and government employment.
Internet Bookwatch
