Shelf Control is a weekly meme hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies where we explore the books we already own but just haven’t gotten around to reading yet.
I love the outdoors as equally as I love reading. I like to go hiking, backpacking, camping, Geocaching. You name the adventure and I am already packed and ready to go.

HOW TO STAY ALIVE IN THE WOODS is a practical, readable-and potentially indispensable-manual for anyone venturing into the great outdoors. Broken down into four essential sections, Sustenance, Warmth, Orientation and Safety, this enlightening guide reveals how to catch game without a gun, what plants to eat (full-color illustrations of these make identification simple), how to build a warm shelter, make clothing, protect yourself and signal for help. Detailed illustrations and expanded instructions, newly commissioned for this deluxe edition, offer crucial information at a glance, making How to Stay Alive in the Woods truly a lifesaver.

When I got it:

Why I want to read it:
