Free (Kindle) NOLS Winter Camping [DIY Outdoor Travel Survival Tips]

NOLS Winter Camping by Buck Tilton and John Gookin is a useful-looking cold-weather survival guide for outdoor enthusiasts, free courtesy of publisher Stackpole as part of their NOLS library series (should go nicely with the previous wilderness medicine one they gave us last year).

Currently free @ Amazon (not available to Canadians). Unlikely to show up in other stores, since Stackpole only does single-venue freebies, unfortunately.

Description
• The National Outdoor Leadership School's official guide to camping in extreme cold
• Comprehensive coverage of winter clothing and gear
• Proven techniques for traveling efficiently and safely across snow and ice and complete directions for building igloos and many other snow shelters

From the National Outdoor Leadership School, the leader in wilderness education, comes the definitive guide on winter camping--based on the official NOLS curriculum, it's the next best thing to taking a course with a qualified instructor. You'll learn how to layer clothing to stay warm and dry, how to maneuver a pack sled through heavy snow cover, and how to sleep comfortably in conditions of extreme cold. Additionally, sections on avalanche safety and first aid provide essential preparation should disaster strike. Illustrated throughout with detailed line drawings.
