In simple, friendly language, enlivened with humour and stories from his own extensive experience, Alloway here offers a practical, comprehensive handbook for both short-term and long-term survival in the Chihuahuan and other North American deserts.David Alloway is an interpretative naturalist at Big Bend Ranch State Park who has taught and practised arid land survival techniques in the United States, Mexico, and Australia for over twenty years.
