Several of those people tragically do not make it out alive, and the reason why is because they because they made seemingly insignificant mistakes that ended up costing them their lives.<br /><br />These mistakes spawned from their belief that they knew true survival skills, but in reality, they only knew false survival skills… A.K.A, survival myths.<br /><br />This book will dispel twelve of the biggest survival myths of all time so you will not make the same critical mistakes should you ever find yourself in a life-or-death survival situation. <br /><br />The specific myths we are going to cover in this book include the following:<br /><br />•A Shelter Means Four Walls and a Roof <br />•You Can Suck Poison Out Of A Snakebite <br />•Drinking Your Urine Will Keep You Hydrated<br />•Eating Snow Will Keep You Hydrated<br />•Food Should Be Your Top Priority <br />•Moss Only Grows On The North Side Of A Tree<br />•Rub Two Sticks Together To Create Fire<br />•You Can Run Away From A Bear<br />•You Can Drink Water From Cactus<br />•Boiling Water Always Makes It Safe To Drink<br />•You Need Water Right Now To Survive In The Desert<br />•You Don’t Need To Bring Survival Gear With You On A Short Hike <br /><br />By the end of this book, you will not only know why each of these myths are actual myths, you will know solutions that will enable you to evade each of them as well. <br />

When people think about the game of golf, the first thing that comes to mind are the cool-looking golf clubs and the (sometimes-tacky) clothing lines. However, they forget to notice one of the most important pieces of equipment in the sport, the humble golf bag.<br />What is it to learn about the golf bag? It is just an odd bag that is used to carry golf clubs, right? However, if you think about it, the iconic golf bag is more than just a fancy carrying case for your golf clubs. In fact, it plays a larger role in the game in the sense that it makes it possible for golfers to play an entire eighteen rounds with relative ease.<br />In this book, you will learn about the quite colorful history of the golf bag and its continuous evolution. You will learn just how much the golf bag changed over the years and the kinds of technologies that are in the modern versions of it. There is also a brief, but comprehensive guide that will teach you what to look for when you are buying your very first golf bag.<br />At first glance, there seems to be nothing of interest about these items, but as you continue reading through the chapters of this book, you will find out that it is actually quite fascinating and make you want to learn more about the game and its history in general.<br />Thank you again for reading. Hopefully, by the end of this book, you will gain a better appreciation of the game of golf while also inspiring you to get better at the sport.<br />

If you're an ordinary weekend walker who has ever dreamed of setting up a tent and spending the night in the wild, rather than trailing regretfully back down the hill to luxuriate in a bed, then this book might strike a chord with you. You might also enjoy it if you've already been there. In 2004 Shirley Worrall decided to spend her precious summer holiday carrying a tent along the Pennine Way, and over the course of the next few years she went on to complete Wainwright's famous Coast to Coast route, several trips across Scotland as part of the TGO Challenge and an epic journey from one end of Corsica to the other on the GR20 long distance trail. Read on if you'd like to learn how to contend with haunted bothies, knots of malignant bullocks and recurrent navigational disasters, as well as exciting times spent walking alone, and with friends, in some of the most breathtakingly beautiful parts of the UK and abroad.
