National Geographic Complete Survival Manual -- Weathering Natural Disasters
You just never know what awaits around the corner in this world. Upon relocation to sunny Florida, we experienced 3 hurricanes within a year, after a *dry spell* of decades -- two within 3 weeks, both direct hits. A relative recently took a dream trip to New Zealand and experienced the 6.3 earthquake within 5 hours of arriving in Christchurch.
If you suddenly found yourself in a natural disaster or survival situation, would you know what steps to take to save yourself and your loved ones? The National Geographic Complete Survival Manual by Michael Sweeney offers essential instructions for weathering eight different natural disasters, from hurricanes and tornadoes to earthquakes and forest fires, including an entire chapter on home-based survival.
It focuses on how to survive in six of the world's most hazardous environments--from building a snow fort if you're lost in a blizzard, to surviving a rattlesnake bite in the desert, to navigating safely through the dense rainforest. Ten National Geographic explorers, photographers, and scientists, candidly share their own near-death stories and how they lived to tell them.
The manual includes 200 color photographs and maps, how-to's, bulleted lists, a glossary, cross-referencing, an appendix, and an index.
