Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Remote desert locations, including the Chihuahuan Desert of northern Mexico, southern Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona, draw adventurers of all kinds, from the highly skilled and well prepared to urban cowboys who couldn't lead themselves (much less a horse!) to water. David Alloway's goal in this book is to help all of them survive when circumstances beyond their control strand them in the desert environment. In simple, friendly language, enlivened with humour and stories from his own extensive experience, Alloway here offers a practical, comprehensive handbook for both short-term and long-term survival in the Chihuahuan and other North American deserts. David Alloway is an interpretative naturalist at Big Bend Ranch State Park who has taught and practised arid land survival techniques in the United States, Mexico, and Australia for over twenty years.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 233-237) and index.
