Forget the Boy Scout handbook... no other book comes close to giving you the tools you need not only to survive in the great outdoors, but to do it in style... chalk full of illustrations of everything from how to skin a rabbit to designing makeshift bed mattresses! I take this one with me EVERY time I go backcountry. Good to see it back in print.
