  1. If you’ve ever had the opportunity to meet Tod, you’ll immediately realize that he really knows his stuff and is laid back & down to earth. That’s the way this book is written – for the rest of us. It’s easy to read, understand and comprehend the various ailments and injuries that are discussed in this book. The information provided also happens to follow the latest Wilderness Medical Society’s National Practice Guidelines for Wilderness Emergency Care, which is why so many folks use it as a text book for Wilderness First Aid and Wilderness First Responder courses.

    Fantastic (and fun) read!

  2. This is the book I carry on long expeditions. I carry a little tiny book by Tilton on short trips, but on longer trips I like this book because it covers just about everything I know how to manage (I’m a WFR and I’m the local SAR Commander.)

  3. This is an excellent reference book for anyone with minimal training, especially in situations where it may be more than the usual <30 min to a well-staffed and stocked hospital.

    Those in hurricane, tornado, wildfire, blizzard or earthquake prone areas should keep one of these near their First Aid kit. But they should read it a few times before they do.

  4. This book is an outstanding reference for back-country situations EMS, Rangers, Leaders, guides or other trained personnel might find themselves in. Great book, highly recommended.
