#1 New Release in Earth Sciences, Natural Disasters, and Sports Reference
Prepare for all the worst case scenarios mother earth throws at you with Mother Nature is Not Trying to Kill You―the only survival kit you need to overcome wildlife, natural disasters, and everything else outdoors.
Survive the unexpected. Statistically, you’re more likely to die from a vending machine than a shark. But, Rob Nelson knows many shark survivors. His college girlfriend was attacked by a crocodile and his roommate, a grizzly bear. His wife was sucked by a wave down a blowhole, he was left stranded at sea after a storm sank his sailboat, and the list goes on and on. To Rob, these “improbable” altercations are “random acts of nature,” and he’s learned how to survive them.
On knots, poisonous plants, and natural disasters. Featuring 52 challenges you can encounter in the wilderness, this survival guide is your year-long crash course for ultimate disaster management. Whether you’re preparing for a moose attack or a nuclear fallout, Mother Nature is Not Trying to Kill You enables you to confront the natural world with skill and confidence. This wilderness survival guidebook also includes:
- Pop culture examples like Jaws and The Revenant
- Nature and science-packed stories and narratives
- Diagrams, survival tips, and more!
