Scouting Guide to Wilderness First Aid

The Scouting program (formerly Boy Scouts) had decades of first aid experience. This survival first aid guide can really come in handy. It contains medical and natural remedies and treatments for many of the common ailments and injuries you might encounter. 

Stop bleeding, avoid infection, fix breaks, and much more. The book was written by an organization that has invested tremendously in training youth and leaders to survive any disaster.

Survival Purpose

Whether you're a novice or expert physician surviving without medical facilities and modern medicine can be a huge challenge. This book organizes some of the common topics you may encounter along with solutions to repair bodies and minds of those in your group.

We've read this book cover to cover and even though we've been involved in Scouts for years we learned a TON. I found the part about pet medications simply being unregulated versions of restricted human medications to be very fascinating. Learn the basics like new Scouts do or gain education in advanced First Aid techniques.

What We Like

  • Layman Dialog - You don't have to be a medical pro to follow along.
  • Survival Mindset - The authors assume resources are limited and give advice on how to make the best with what you have.
  • Quick Read - This is not a medical encyclopedia, it's straight forward and quick to digest.

Tips and Recommendations

  • Get trained - Hopefully this book isn't your first take on first aid. Get some CPR and first aid training in addition to this book.
  • Gear up - make sure you have first aid supplies on hand for an emergency.
