Review:

From planning to search and rescue procedures, Collins Gem Hillwalker's Survival Guide is a fantastic pocket-sized resource for anyone planning to hillwalk.

Mistaking hillwalking for gentle strolls, many people venture onto the fells ill equipped to deal with sudden changes in the weather or route. Read this book first and you need never be unprepared again.

An introductory planning chapter is followed by a comprehensive guide to the complicated rules and regulations governing UK rights of way. Sections on clothing and equipment and navigation cover the essentials, while a camping out chapter provides the more adventurous walker with clear guidelines on overnight treks. Food, water, weather and medical questions are answered and a special section on winter walking complements the basic guidelines. A section on what to do in an emergency is the part everybody hopes they will never need to read, but is precisely the section everyone should! An appendix of useful addresses completes a well-produced, colourful guide which is small enough to carry in every rucksack.
