A Guide to Accident Response and First Aid Care.
By Jan Carline, Martha Lentz, Steve MacDonald; The Mountaineers, Seattle, 1996.
First aid skills are essential in the backcountry, where outside help may be hours or days away. This book covers the basics of first aid in wilderness and mountaineering situations. It is best used as a textbook in conjunction with a hands-on mountaineering-oriented first aid course. Everyone who travels in the backcountry should take such a course.
