Book Review: The Outdoor Emergency Medical Handbook (Firefly Books)

Bella Thorne may have you covered for glamping but for heartier trips I’d recommend The Outdoor Medical Emergency Handbook: First Aid for Travelers, Backpackers & Adventurers by Dr. Spike Briggs and Dr. Campbell Mackenzie recently published by Firefly Books.

This title is an authoritative one stop for all your emergency needs, questions and queries while on any expedition with detailed resources. The book is not only fascinating but meticulously put together. I was impressed with the array of information provided for travelers and adventurers and the general readability of the text as well.

The guide is well organized and compact making it accessible to the reader without a medical background and convenient to travel with to many a hiking, wilderness camping or even glamping destination. Also well done were the illustrations and visuals accompanying charts and specific emergency situations that travelers will most likely encounter from minor issues to severe and serious injuries. 

There are comprehensive recommendations for what to pack for emergency situations that the average person would most likely encounter.

With the timeliness of this publication (it coincides with our National Park Service’s celebration of its centennial), the book will leave readers of any age or experience in a wilderness setting with sufficient confidence and knowledge to address and prevent emergencies in the outdoors for a day, week or more extended period of time.
