Whether you're lost in the woods, facing an angry grizzly, or trapped in a blackout that takes down Toronto, the experts at Outdoor Life magazine are the people you want on your side. This top-selling book is now available in a special Canadian edition with content targeted to intrepid Canadians . . . at home and wherever they may travel.

When disaster strikes, time is of the essence. The people who survive are those who know what to do . . . they have their "bug out bags" packed, their travel essentials saved, their family prepared, and their cars gassed up and ready to go. Everyone wants to believe that they are that person--the one who would prevail whether they found themselves facing an angry bear, a killer snowstorm, or a revolution in a third-world country. Filled with clear, concise instructions, helpful diagrams, essential checklists, and inspirational first-person stories, this book is a fascinating armchair read that might just save the reader's life. Special content is targeted to situation Canadians might need to survive, including animal attacks, extreme weather, and wilderness conditions. Sprinkled throughout are real-life "extreme survival" stories that inform and entertain. Even if the most terrifying thing you've ever survived is a riot at a hockey game, this book is a must-read.

075 Heal with Bugs:
Typically you want to avoid bugs as much as possible, unless they can be of use to you.

A spiderweb can make a sterile bandage for a small cut or abrasion. Find a web and smear it over the injury to prevent infection.
