I have been excitedly awaiting the third edition of this text, and was not disappointed. Buck Tilton has taken what I believe was a classic textbook and updated it perfectly. Unlike other books which tend to reflect the author's bias, Mr. Tilton has updated the techniques mentioned, and removed some which have been disputed by the Wilderness Medical Society.
I feel anyone wishing to provide proper care in the wild should not only read this, but continually review the materials within. This edition will be one of the texts used in all of my company's courses...at least until the fourth edition comes out. Bravo, Mr. Tilton!
