Survival Nurse: Running an Emergency Nursing Stati&hellip by Ragnar Benson
Actually, he's covered the info in at least two of his other books - Mostly in 'The Survivalist's Medicine Chest', and some the Survival Retreat (sections on Shelter, water, food, touches on medicine, etc). Basically, if you have both of these books, you basically have the 'Survival Nurse' info. Re-listed chapters, re-packaged info he's touched on in his other books, and then he's re-sold it.

Some of the well-known characters are not here in Loose Tails ( Portnoy the Gopher, Oliver W. Jones, Lola, etc.). Steve Dallas' char. is pretty much here, as well as… Read more
Staying Found: The Complete Map & Compass Book, 3r&hellip by June Fleming
traveling with a map and compass takes some skill (more then using a GPS that's accurate to what? Within feet now? Color LCD with uploadable maps, etc.)

Considering most compasses have two degree markings, being accurate with a compass is knowing how to set bearings, correct bearings after moving around an obstacle, landmarking, Triangulation, and so on. This book will show you how to do all this.

Most maps don't change declination that much every year. Usually it's only by a few minutes - and since there is 60 minutes in each degree, you don't really have to re-draw alot of lines. (e.g. My maps for Southern Alberta change 5.3 minutes decreasing annually. So that… Read more
