U.S. soldiers are trained for battle against any enemy, but war sometimes leaves them in a fight for their lives against the harsh forces of nature as well. The U.S. Army Survival Manual is the one weapon they rely on to get out of the most treacherous situations. Designed to be simple and easy to use in times of extreme stress, this field manual is perfect for Army grunts and weekend outdoorsmen alike. While the average reader may not find themselves having to evade the enemy in hostile territory, this book provides the survival information every camper, hiker and hunter should have before le.painful cuts; seemingly harmless sponges and sea urchins can slip fine needles of lime or silica into your skin, which will break off and fester (fig. 232). 1. Piranha are small fishesthat live in the Amazon River and its tributaries in South America.
