Recommends it for: backpackers, hikers and just anyone who is out in wilderness area for any reason
Great Book. This book tells it like it is and without fluff. It can be read in order or by subject. It is a book I'll keep and refer to many times in the future. This book covers snow hiking, creek crossing and other topics in details beyond what other books do -- in ways that may save your life. THIS BOOK is a KEEPER!
