Medicine for the outdoors

Paul Auerbach MD

This smaller manual sized book by Dr Auerbach is geared toward the backpacker or hiker and covers a wide variety of Wilderness conditions in its 497 pages. The average reader can read it but even seasoned clinicians may learn a few new facts. It may be carried in the field as a portable reference. For those who already very knowledgably about wilderness travel and safety this may a interesting but they may choose the more encyclopaedic Wilderness Medicine text edited by Dr Auerbach.
