Do you have what it takes to be a survivor? Are you mentally prepared for wilderness survival even when there are no million dollar pots of gold up for grabs like on television's "Survivor" program? If left in the desert with no water, would you be able to survive? If stranded on a tropical island, could you find food? If tired and injured in a jungle, would you know what plants to use for herbal treatments? If cold and shivering on a stormy mountainside, would you be able to start a fire without matches and build adequate shelter? If lost in the woods, would you be able to navigate your way out of danger? If pushed to the limits of physical endurance, do you have the strength, stamina and fitness to keep going? If you answered "no" to any of these questions, you need SurvivalIQ. As your personal survival handbook, SurvivalIQ provides information, resources, strategies and techniques you need to know whether you're preparing for a back country camping trip or the Green Berets.

Land Navigation
Cartography is the art and science of expressing the known physical features of the earth graphically by maps and charts. No one knows who drew, molded, laced together, or scratched out in the dirt the first map. We do know that map reading and land navigation skills are critical to survival in a wilderness environment. Whether you're preparing to be an Army Ranger or a backpacker through the Australian outback, this handbook is filled with information you need for safety and survival in wilderness.
