How to Survive Outdoors: Teach Yourself
The adventurer’s guide to staying alive in the wild
By Jason Polley
A practical and to the point guide to outdoor survival from a military trained and highly experienced professional adventurer.
Every year, more than 40,000 people climb Mount Kilimanjaro. Millions head for the great
outdoors every weekend, and the concept of the Great Outdoors has never been more
popular. If you are one of them, would you know what to do if you got stranded or hurt?
"How to Survive Outdoors" gives essential, practical advice for situations
that aren't in any way implausible. It starts with ten life-saving tips, then outlines
the crucial components - water, food, shelter and so on. It covers scenarios any one of us
could encounter, including plane crashes and sinkings.
Jason Polley is an adventurer and writer based in the Scottish Highlands. He has travelled to over fifty countries taking in the Amazon, Arctic Circle, Sahara and Himalayas. He is trained in Survival Skills, Fiirst Aid, and was taught the art of tracking by Ray Mears.
