Post crash wilderness survival techniques specifically for pilots in a variety of conditions including desert, arctic, mountain, and water environments.

From the Introduction:
Post crash survival, in terms of coping with the environment and immediate physical needs is usually thought of as a problem encountered only by pilots who fly long distances over unsettled unfamiliar areas deserts, open water, mountains, etc. This is not always the case. Numerous accidents have occurred within sight and sound of civilization. Many survivors who were unable to make their distress location known to others, suffered severely or died before rescuers could find them. An emergency preparedness kit on board the aircraft plus survival knowledge will often make the difference between life and death.
