Overview

The wilderness is all around us and even when we immerse ourselves in the stuff of civilization-computers, cell phones, restaurants, malls, video games, and so on-we don't have to wander far to meet the wilderness. The people in this book faced wilderness survival situations when they went for a hike and ran into unexpected trouble, when they went skiing and encountered bad weather, or when their plane crashed in the mountains.
