A refreshing look at death in the great outdoors – no, really. This book is a series of fictionalized accounts of death or near-death experiences from common outdoor causes, compiled from many actual cases. Each tale is accompanied by a detailed physiological description of what’s happening in the body at each stage. While it provides information that could be crucial for preventing or managing dangerous outdoor situations, it is also a kind of meditation on mortality that may help move us from denial to acceptance of the inevitable.
