Extended Description

Welcome to an exciting adventure in learning. Everywhere, people are spending more and more time in a variety of wilderness settings. However, whether you are a sports enthusiast or adventurer, an outdoor educator or naturalist, there is some essential information that is necessary in order to be comfortable and safe in the outdoors.

Whether you are on a day hike or an extended trek, I am confident that this book will expand your knowledge of the outdoors!
