intriguing and informative
on 30 April 2002
While the only outdoor activity I'm ever likely to participate in is the occasional Glastonbury, I sleep easier in my tent knowing that at a push I could probably fend off wild animals, or capture them for dinner !
It's full of fascinating information with clear diagrams and, while reading it I did entertain thoughts of 'me versus nature', however I like my home-comforts and 'ping cuisine' too much so I probably won't be making full use of this book.
There are plenty of astoundingly clever tips, and ways of doing things that would not have occurred to me. I think this book would be appreciated by anyone as a gift as it's a useful and absorbing read, whether or not the recipient is about to dash off into the wilderness.
Personally, I like to know that, at a push, I could 'get by' and survive and this book enables me to maintain this delusion !
