Reviews for Backpacker: The Survival Hacker’s Handbook
This bright-orange book really does highlight all the dangers nature can throw our way when we’re backpacking through all sorts of environments, in all sorts of weather. You might think it is irrelevant to shooting, but you would be wrong. Let’s take stalking — it brings just as many dangers as backpacking, perhaps even more. It’s really worth knowing how to build a shelter when you find yourself stuck and unable to return to the safety of civilisation. Definitely a book worth having if you’re an adventurous person.
