Everyone who ventures into the backcountry goes equipped with tips for preventing or treating the injuries and maladies that can arise there . . . don’t they?
This deck of 48 Knowledge Cards will see that you do, at least. It’s compact enough to go anywhere in a pocket; its Q&A quiz format means that you’ll be entertained while you learn; and its contents deal with most of the nasties that the outback can inflict on a visitor. Each card poses a question on the frontÑHow might you retrieve a lost companion? Treat frostbite, snakebite, heat stroke? What could you do in a mountain lion encounter?Ñwith a knowledgeable, succinct answer on the back.
These cards are the work of a lifelong outdoorsman and river guide. They’re excellent company, at home or on a wilderness trip. Text by J. Baldwin.
