Summary

Summary

Willow Creek Guides provide destination solutions for traveling sportsmen and women who number in the millions. They represent a market with dollar volume measured by the billions. Long on dollars and short on quality time, these sportsmen require objective, reliable and timely information to make their sporting travel decisions. The growing line of Willow Creek Guides fills that need, purely and simply.The author distills his extensive experience and training into basic survival skills information that all outdoorspeople should know before they head down a trail. Using true stories to illustrate his advice, Keller addresses finding safe drinking water, using a map and compass, determining direction by the stars, building a fire in windy or wet conditions, recognizing and dealing with hypothermia, selecting shelter, and much more. This book helps readers put the trust back in themselves rather than their cell phones or GPS by making them aware of their environments, their mental and physical limits, and their creativity and resourcefulness. Keller's advice on learning basic survival skills will greatly increase a person's ability to survive when an outdoor excursion turns into a battle for life.
