Product Information

Nothing soothes the soul like a great escape into the wilderness for a hiking or camping adventure, but what about your physical health? Without the proper awareness of the protozoa and parasites that await you, outdoor adventures can quickly become a nightmare of viruses and infections. Add animal-borne diseases like tick fever rabies, and trichinosis and many would-be adventurers might never leave their homes...unless, of course, they have this book. This valuable resources describes food- and waterborne diseases and explains how to prevent them; how to keep a clean camp; how to choose the best water filter; how to select, manage, handle, and prepare foods; how to dispose of human waste and solid waste; and how to use the Leave-No-Trace ethics of backcountry living and travel.
