This book is the most complete survival book I have ever seen. It contains information about how to survive in any climate, from deserts, mountains, and forests, to the ocean and tropical islands. However the information isn't limited to just survival techniques it also describes many handy skills one could use at a camp or anytime you find yourself in the wilderness. Even if you never have to use it, which I hope you don't, it is a great read. I'd recommend this book to anyone.
Good book, great read for casual or serious hiker or camping enthusiast
