The Department of Homeland Security advises all citizens to develop an Emergency Preparedness Plan, along with a Disaster Supply Kit . . . but who has the time? What will you do if Hurricane Bernadette blows ashore before you can stock up on K-rations and signal flares? Don't panic-it's Joey Green to the rescue! Last-Minute Survival Secrets contains more than a hundred ingenious survival tips that may sound quirky at first, but really do work. Green shows how to start a campfire with potato chips, open a locked suitcase with a ballpoint pen, and prevent heat stroke with a disposable diaper. Readers will learn to build a solar cooker using cardboard and aluminum foil, a flood alarm with aspirin and a clothespin, and a wi-fi antenna with a coffee can. The book is even helpful for life's everyday disasters-when a thunderstorm knocks out the power, the dog is sprayed by a skunk, or your car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. The book also includes interesting and goofy sidebars related to these survival tactics, fascinating trivia to keep you entertained until FEMA arrives, which may be a while. It's the perfect resource for armchair survivalists, budding MacGyvers, and adventurists on a budget. Joey Green is the author of more than 50 books, including Joey Green's Fix-It Magic, The Mad-Scientist Handbook, and Polish Your Furniture with Panty Hose.

The Wilderness First Aid Handbook is a handy, quick-reference guide easily accessible with basic wilderness first aid knowledge, but it does not require advanced degrees or experience with medicine and prehospital care. Recognizing that certain knowledge and procedures are outside the scope of a layperson’s training, Dr. Grant Lipman limits the use of technical terms and advanced techniques that may be unfamiliar to some readers or beyond their comfort zone. This system-based, easy-to-follow guide assists the first aid provider when encountering most wilderness emergencies, from cold and heat concerns and blister treatments to high altitude illness and lightning injury prevention—and much more. Typically the most challenging decision in the wilderness environment is when to evacuate a sick or potentially sick person, and as such, each section has detailed decision-making steps to inform you of when to be concerned and when to get out. This guidance is based upon the recent evidence-based consensus statement published by the Wilderness Medical Society on the scope of practice of wilderness first aid. Filled with original, full-color artwork illustrating the techniques and procedures described and with internal-spiral binding and waterproof pages handy for travel into extreme environments, The Wilderness First Aid Handbook is a must-have for every back pocket or backpack.
