Surviving in the Wild by John Townsend

With all our modern day creature comforts, it is easy to forget just how treacherous it can be in the great outdoors. 'Surviving in the Wild' looks at extreme situations where survival is at the top of the agenda and maggots are on the menu! Meet a man who amputated his own arm to survive a mountain accident, and a girl who fell from the sky and emerged alive from the rain forest. This book is packed with tips on foraging for food, building fires, making shelters, identifying dangerous animals and avoiding certain plants, as well as those that can be lifesavers. So if you’re off on a leisurely hike or an extreme desert expedition, you will know what to pack, what to do if danger strikes, and how to brave the elements.
