Survivor Kid: A Practical Guide to Wilderness Survival


Survivor Kid: A Practical Guide to Wilderness Survival Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Counteracting the panic and fear associated with getting lost in the wild, this handbook equips children with practical tools for overcoming adverse wilderness experiences, even if they are endured alone. Compiled by a search-and-rescue professional, straightforward advice is offered on building shelters and fires, signaling for help, finding water and food, dealing with dangerous animals, learning how to navigate, and avoiding injuries. Practice projects are included to hone survival skills—such as starting a fire with a reflective surface, casting animal tracks, or using a treasure hunt to test navigational aptitude. Making a strong argument for danger prevention, each lesson is coupled with simple instructions and diagrams that will reassure and empower young adventurers.
