With 400 strategies for engaging in the outdoors, and expert tips and tricks, The Great Outdoors: A User's Guide makes Mother Nature easier to understand than ever before. From mountain climbing, to skiing, sledding, and sailing, outdoor adventurer Brendan Leonard shows that you don't need to be a risk-taker to enjoy the outdoors. But if the reader does find himself at the point of man vs. nature, Leonard shares survival skills from how to bandage a wound and read a topographical map, to how to drive on sand and remove a tick from your skin. Organized thematically and written in short takeaway entries with line drawings, The Great Outdoors: A User's Guide is a friendly way into the outdoor lifestyle for those who want to dabble or go all in.
