  1. This is a concise first aid book. yet, for me, I didn’t think it had too much to do with wilderness first aid. There wasn’t anything on evacuation (improvised litter, going for help, moving a victim over difficult terrain, for example). The illustrations were good. There are a number of books on the same subject that are more complete. Price is right.

  2. We teach wilderness medicine courses and one thing that folks always are worried about is “what if I forget the information that I learned in class?”. Well, this book should fix that! It’s small and compact and is packed full of useful how-to tips and treatment options for most commonly encountered medical and trauma illnesses and injuries encountered in ‘wilderness’ and remote settings. Also a great addition to your first aid kit if you’re a weekend warrior and like to go out into the woods for a day hike on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. You just never know when it’ll come in handy!
