Be prepared for your next group excursion into the wilds with Mark Harvey’s The National Outdoor Leadership School’s Wilderness Guide. This comprehensive guide includes valuable information about camping and hiking safety, first aid techniques and tips on equipment trends. You also learn how to create simple, affordable and no-nonsense meals and how to forecast weather conditions. Packed with photos and helpful illustrations, this practical volume includes a glossary of relevant hiking and camping terms.

The Wilderness Guide brings the savvy of the world's most famous and respected outdoor organization to everyone—from the sixteen million backpacking Americans to the more than 265 million people, tenderfeet and trail-hardened hikers, who visit our national parks annually. Some of the topics covered are:

  • Selecting equipment—including discussions of the advantages and disadvantages of products such as the internal frame pack, lighter-weight boots, and freestanding tents
  • The latest “leave no trace” camping techniques
  • Traveling safely and sensibly—including vital information on maps, compasses, and tips on crossing difficult terrain
  • Backcountry cooking, with tips on building fires and tricks for making gourmet meals
  • Search-and-rescue techniques, including how to organize a self-sufficient search group and when to call in professional rescue teams

Illustrated throughout with instructional drawings and photos and featuring lists of equipment, the Wilderness Guide is a must-have for anyone planning to explore the great outdoors.
