Survive in the Mountains

Stranded on a mountain? Don’t sweat it. This guide in the Survival Zone series is equipped with tips and practical advice for staying safe should this very situation occur. It begins dramatically with the true story of a plane-crash survivor and then transitions into more likely scenarios that readers could encounter while hiking, skiing, or rock climbing. Small text boxes appear against photographic backgrounds, containing general tips on packing proper dress and gear, fending off animal attacks, building shelters, finding food and water, building a fire, and creating emergency-rescue signals. More detailed information is required to make this book truly useful, and in a few instances, the streamlined content could result in dangerous situations—particularly regarding fire safety and interactions with animals. Even so, the sensational topic will make this popular.— Julia Smith Stranded on a mountain? Don’t sweat it.
