Excellant book about two differnt men who get lost one in the BWCA and one in Quetico. The one was doing the Pow Wow trail in the BWCA and got lost and survived for about a week without food. The other was a guide for a canoeing group who became lost while looking for a portage.

I enjoyed it, too.  Glad to see some one else plugged it here.  A pleasant suprise was what I got out of reading the book.

Happy Trails,

RS

It does have a few learning moments to it. I enjoyed the point of view of what is going thru someones mind and causes them to do the things they do. In these cases they didn't really think it thru well.

To good case studies to learn from.  The cold case made me shiver just reading it.  I hate the cold in Minnesota.  Much prefer winter in the West.

I was shocked that the guy hiking left his gear and took so little with him when trying to get to his car.  The canoeing guide really did a great job of using some skills to know his direction of travel. Using the stick method and the North Star to find his directions.

Fun book. It was recommended to me to read the even chapters first and then the odd ones which was excellent advice.

Ya, I figured half the book would be one guys story and half the other, so was surprised how it was every other chapter for them.
