Wonderful book and expanded over last edition. Auerbach and his contributors have created a superb reference with up-to-date topics and treatments.
Not only does it address just about every wilderness medicine topic conceivable, but also a few pages addressing search and rescue and survival. The book has a very complete index.

My only negative is that the thin pages are easy to damage (but lighter) and overall size (922 pages) might not be great for tossing in your pack for a hike.

Further, not the best reference for those who don't have medical training/ experience (it is written for medicine professionals).

Overall if you have an interest in wilderness medicine, get this book. If you travel outdoors, take a course that addresses wilderness medicine, and then get this book!

And the big book "Wilderness Medicine" by Auerbach is fantastic, as well!

I love my desk version, but the pages get soggy in high humidity. My tablet has a cute little waterproof baggie it lives in, with a silicone moisture-sucker, & now I can refer to my field guide without having to use a string of porters or pack mules to get my library to site with me. Invaluable book, this, whilst travelling. Take the course first, the book won't make a lay person an expert.
Very good! A thorough and concise review of bush medicine. A must have for self-reliant folks.

As a physcianI I found this book very well written and informative. I also own the yellow page size hardcover Wilderness Medicine 7th edition by the same author which is my major reference. This paperback and kindle versions are superub for taking with you on trips. Highly recommended
a very good handbook for the traveler and medically versatile, well written, detailed and in a handy format, I don't travel Africa or Asia without it
Gift for MD son-in-law. He enjoys it very much. Great guide to have for wilderness adventures. First saw it in Africa.
Great reference for outdoor medical issues
