Like a seasoned outfitter for hire (at a fraction of the cost), Ragged Mountain Pocket Guides give beginners the straightforward, reassuring advice they need for a successful first foray in the field.

Because he understands the dynamics of outdoor injuries, Gill writes simply and directly in terms a layperson can understand. Practical, packable, and positive, Wilderness First Aid covers more than 100 common injuries, easily identified by symptom. Wilderness First Aid offers proven advice from a board-certified emergency medicine specialist. No other portable book is as thorough. As with other titles in the Ragged Mountain Pocket Guide series, Wilderness First Aid is designed to fit easily in backpack or pocket, and it presents information so readers can find it quickly. With a weather-resistant cover, it is a natural purchase for anyone who hikes, backpacks, kayaks or otherwise spends time outside.
