Outdoor Deaths

hiker

Winter is a time of darker days, shorter time outdoors, less sunlight, and brush clearing, burn piles and bon fires. Death is often associated with Autumn, but the feeling extends well through winter. Frozen, frosty, icy, stranded or gone. Just gone.

The books below are warnings to all who wish to be enlightened on wilderness skills. Come all clumsy, clueless and naive. Outdoorsman 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 interested to discover how easy it is for people to get lost, fall, get injured, get attacked, or die in the mountains. On foot or by car, the stories are long and ever detailed.
