Happy Holidays with...The Wilderness Survival Guide!

Like many men (and women...just not me!) my husband enjoys outdoor sporting.  He is really interested in hunting and fishing and all things "outdoorsy".  For his reading pleasure I have found a book that combines what he loves (the outdoors) with my natural tendency to worry...The Wilderness Survival Guide:  The Practical Skills You Need For The Great Outdoors by Joe O'Leary.

The Wilderness Survival Guide is a handy book that includes everything you need to stay safe (and alive!) in the great outdoors.  With chapters on being prepared, tools, hunting and trapping, making fire, finding water and much more, O'Leary provides  practical information before you head out on your next trek.   To me this book is just perfect.  It is interesting to my husband who has a great love of the outdoors and it makes me feel better to give him all the information he needs to stay safe out there.  I think this should be required reading for anyone heading out on an outdoor adventure.  If I ever decide to have a little foray into the wilderness (stop laughing...it could happen!!) I will read this book 5 times and then bring it along in my backpack!  I will be prepared.
