I ordered this book on 7/2 from Amazon.com through one of their affiliates. I paid $26.78 with shipping and handling for a like new condition book, but I see there are cheaper choices. I was pleased with the condition of the book as it appeared to be new and in excellent condition.
The book arrived 7/20, and I was pleasantly surprised as to the size of the book.
It has 1080 pages and is jam packed with color images and information on all sorts of topics on the outdoors. This book is a great resource for learning about all types of things, from tying knots to building fires, selecting knives, cold weather survival and many other topics.
While this book is more like an encyclopedia than an in depth study on any given topic, it is very nicely done. There is so much information in it that it will take a long time to read through just the parts that interest me the most!
In reviewing the Customer reviews on Amazon, I see there is a mixed reception to this book, depending on the skill and knowledge of the person doing the review. For the most part it has good solid reviews with the negatives being a small minority.
Not having read through the whole book yet, I can only say WOW! I would recommend this book if you are at all interested in the out of doors. You are bound to learn something new even if you are a seasoned veteran of the wilds!
