21cm x 13cm. 99 pages. Illustrated wrappers. Backwoods Surgery & Medicine, written a century ago, contains much relevant knowledge for how to treat the most common injuries, as well as more serious threats to life found in backcountry travel. Minor and compound fractures of limbs, bites from frost and snake, lions and tigers and bears, Moody describes the simplest methods of dealing with injuries in a clear, if archaic voice. Your great-grand-father probably read this book and saved your grandfather during a camping trip in the summer of 1923, thus resulting in your birth and the ability to read these pages now a century later.
