If it's basic survival techniques you need to survive a short-term crisis, read this book - then keep it close at hand. J. Wayne Fears is a search and rescue official trained in survival skills in the military, so his tips are backed by Army training.

J. Wayne Fears has some potential life-saving advice for anyone who finds himself lost in the woods: "Stop, sit down, think, remain calm, don't panic and plan to stay put." It's not as easy as it sounds, but after reading Fear's "The Pocket Survival Guide" you'll at least know what to do. This handy 128-page booklet is packed with information and tips on how to keep safe and relatively comfortable during an unexpected night in the woods. This is a bare bones pocket manual written on the premise that most people reported missing are found within 72 hours or less. So Fears, who once was stranded in the Alaskan backcountry when his fly-in outfitter failed to return, keeps each of his chapters short and direct. There's no flowery prose, no "this happened to me" survival stories. Just he basics, including: How to Assemble Your Own Survival Kit, Prepare Your Signals, Construct a Shelter and Build a Survival Fire, Avoid Hypothermia and, most important, Dealing With Fear. Fears is trained in search and rescue. -- Gary Garth, Courier Journal (Louisville, Kentucky), September 23, 2004
