"There is a reason a book makes it to a sixth edition. This is the definitive book on wilderness medicine. It is an excellent, thorough book on critical and exciting concepts in this still expanding realm. The topics are concise yet cover a broad spectrum of environments and clinical situations not commonly seen. A number of the subjects are not exclusive to wilderness situations and are applicable to everyday life in the emergency room and hospital. Although the book is large and heavy, possibly limiting its use in the field, the online version (access is provided with the purchase of the book) may be a viable option for those with portable devices." - Michael D. Zwank, MD, RDMS, FACEP(University of Minnesota Medical School) Doody 4 stars!
"When on vacation, who knows when you might need to treat a Gila-monster bite or use dental floss to close scalp lacerations? 'Wilderness Medicine,' edited by Paul S. Auerbach, professor of surgery at Stanford University School of Medicine's emergency division, has the answers." - Laura Landro, Wall Street Journal

It is hard to be too positive on the content of this book but the online access won't do you much good unless you are sitting in your comfortable office. I would probably buy this if I could get a full content CD. As it is since I have access to the book online it won't help me much to own a copy.
I am new to Kindle but that format doesn't seem to be useful for a reference text.
Interestingly at this time (12/20/2011) you can get the book cheaper at the ELSEVIer site than on Amazon ( not the usual case).
However, be aware that the Kindle edition is not a digital version of the textbook, it is an e-reader edition, meaning that it has more than 168,000 pages and is not searchable; it is great for just reading for fun, but not good for reference. If you want a true digital edition you need to purchase the hardcover book and either digitize it yourself or send it to a company to do—either way digitizing will destroy the book. Also, the e-reader version is included for free if you buy the hardcover book anyway, so you may just want to fork out the extra $25 and buy that. The attached picture shows part of the first content page of the textbook (I think that is around physical page 10), it is page 2,287 of the ebook.
