If you’re headed out to the backcountry, take a look at Lost and Stranded by Timothy Sprinkle before you embark on your adventure. The purpose of this book is two-fold: 1. highlight potential dangers; and 2. provide practical advice for specific situations. Each chapter includes a story, sometimes tragic, followed by detailed facts and information about the situation, and lastly, important expert analysis and advice on how to avoid the situation and/or survive. Situations include predatory animals (i.e., bears, big cats, wolves, etc.); small animals and insects (i.e., snakes, spiders, scorpions, etc); weather issues (flash floods, lightening, blizzards, etc.); injury and illness (i.e., frostbite, altitude sickness, dehydration, etc.); and hazardous terrain (i.e., rockslides, avalanches, etc.). Sprinkle presents loads of critical and relevant information and data for those that venture into the wilderness and those that enjoy the outdoors. We hope you never need the information presented in this book, but just in case, Lost and Stranded is a valuable resource for the intrepid TrailblazerGirl.
