Do you know what to do when a mountain lion attacks? How to build a fire in the wilderness? How to fend off an armed attacker? With a little help from the survival experts at Outdoor Life magazine and expert author Joseph Pred, you can learn how to handle whatever curve balls life throws you. Fun, helpful, highly descriptive, and occasionally downright wacky, this visual guide demystifies everything from the essential (how to perform CPR) to the unusual (how to fight a shark) to the downright bizarre (how to survive the fall of civilization), each explained in nearly wordless step-by-step illustrations.
