Description

An absorbing, fast-paced, and comprehensive guide to surviving in the wild, with a particular focus on the animals you might encounter–and want to avoid!–while you’re there. Whether you’re lost in the mountains, stranded the desert, or adrift at sea, if you’ve read this book, you might just have a fighting chance at staying alive. Vivid photos, maps and other colorful graphics provide plenty to inspire armchair explorers. Chapters cover survival at sea, on a Pacific island, in the Outback, the Sahara Desert, the Amazon Rain forest, Polar wilderness, and in the Rocky Mountains. Readers are provided with information on what to do first, the key rules for survival, the animals in each habitat, and how to signal for help. Feature pages highlight real-life survivors who escaped these harsh environments to inspire young explorers.
