You'll be ahead of the game if you read and carry Wilderness 911. Written by Backpacker medical editor and emergency room veteran Eric A. Weiss, M.D., it covers the injuries and incidents most likely to happen in the backcountry. Not only does this manual prepare you with straightforward instructions on assessing and treating injuries from minor to severe, it goes one step further and teaches the "tricks of the trade"--what to do when first-aid supplies are scarce or nonexistent. These improvisational techniques--from closing wounds with hair or tape to making airtight dressings with honey and slings with safety pins--will get you through when you have to make do.

Made in USA.
