The books below are warnings to all who wish to be enlightened on wilderness skills and reality. Come all clumsy, clueless and naive. Outdoorsman, weekend campers or highway stranded motorists. Learn from true stories on disappearances.

City folks beware, hundreds of people go missing, vanish or die every year in the wild lands of this country. Most disappear inside popular National Parks and numerous State Parks.

If you are indeed interested to discover how easy it is for people to get lost, fall off of a cliff, get injured or attacked, drown, be kidnapped or die in the mountains – then these books may be good reading material.

On foot, by truck or by car, the stories are long and ever detailed, often ending with more questions than answers.
