Alone in the Wild: The Essentials of Wilderness Survival

by Marcus Duke

You did not plan to get lost — no one ever does — but an unexpected weather event, an injury or poor navigation has lead you off the trail and caused you to become isolated, perhaps miles from civilization… are you prepared to save your own life?

“Alone in the Wild” by Marcus Duke is all about giving you the tools you’ll need to get yourself out of trouble when things go bad.

What happens if you find yourself stranded or lost, perhaps when your backpack contained only enough supplies for the few hours you expected to be gone? The wilderness can be a dangerous place and knowing the basics of wilderness survival is absolutely essential before heading out on any outdoors adventure!
