  1. Ahah! Finally a book that keeps me from trouble before I get into it. I saw Johnson’s name and picked up the book right away. He lives up to his Outdoor Life popularity. This will be the new guide for this ramblin’ man. It’s light enough to put in a backpact. Very up to date. A great find.

  2. The emphasis in this book in on prevention, followed by the do’s and don’t’s of staying alive if something does go wrong. Given the recent history of disasters in this country, the book is a must read. It’s not a book about how to live in the woods. It’s about prevention, staying alive and getting rescued. He does go into some recent events that could have had better results, if the victims had followed the rules of survival. There’s lots of great photos, nice sketches and wonderful advice on staying safe until your searchers find you. Johnson isn’t preachy or pedantic, he writes in a breezy style with a bit of humor. I’m really interested in that hot rock bed!

  4. Gosh, it’s good to see Rich Johnson’s knowledge packaged so nicely and so easy to carry around. As a forever camper, I can really use it on every trip, whether it’s a long trek by car or by foot into the woods. Makes a nice gift book too.

  5. “Outdoor,” the previous negative reviewer, is completely off-base. This is not a book about how to camp. It’s a book that tells you what not to do in the wilderness should something go wrong and what you can do to survive. As such, it is a tremendous resource. Rich Johnson’s writing style is also very engaging! (He reminds me of a character in a Rick Bass short story, esp. the tale of hot rock bed.) I now carry a small survival kit with me in my car when I travel, esp. in snowy conditions, and know what to do should I become lost or should my car break down miles from help. I’m not really an “outdoor” person, yet I found this book fascinating. RJ seems like quite a character, and he knows what he’s talking about!
