Review

This is the most advanced and up-to-date guide of its kind in North
America. Written at a level that is understandable to those outside the
medical profession, the manual covers every type of illness or injury
imaginable and features dozens of drawings describing how to deal with
every emergency, from childbirth to compound fractures. Each section is
coherently organized and provides information that will enable the
caregiver to make a reasonable diagnosis of minor as well as deadly
conditions.

Safety is an often overlooked part of the outdoor experience. This
first-aid guide will broaden the margin of safety for those who read it
carefully.
