How fast can the average Grizzly Bear run and what can you do to avoid an encounter with one?
Author and full-time journalist Timothy Sprinkle wants you to be safe if you are “Lost and Stranded” alone in the wilderness and you’ll want to read his book to learn the answer to my Grizzly Bear question.
Sprinkle offers 247 pages of vital information about how you can overcome obstacles if you’re by yourself in the face of danger. If you’ve planned a day hiking who knows what you’ll encounter along the way? What are some circumstances that can turn the peace and quiet in the woods into a nightmare?
“Expert Advice on How to Survive Being Alone in the Wilderness” highlights the common and not-so-common threats from stinging insects, weather events, hazardous terrain, and injury and illness. You might think you know how to treat a spider or snake bite or fend off a territorial animal that feels threatened by your presence but chances are you won’t remember those basic survival tips you learned in scouting years ago. Perhaps, you’re new to outdoor travel and reading Sprinkle’s book could help to save your life. Lost and Stranded is both a refresher and a Wilderness 101 course.
Sprinkle addresses questions readers might have related to more than two dozen scenarios and he utilizes advice from experts in a variety of fields from medical doctors to first responders. Test your skills and knowledge by answering the following questions.
Is a Mountain Lion perched on the side of a mountain a threat?
What’s the most dangerous wild animal you’ll find in the woods?
Why should you avoid crossing a stream that’s above your knee?
What are some symptoms of tick-borne diseases?
Each hazard is presented with (real-life) examples that are based on actual events.
Sprinkle is a full-time journalist and author with expertise in sports, business, travel, and lifestyle. Lost and Stranded was published by Skyhorse Publishing, New York, NY.
