Synopsis: Recipient of the Library Association's Outstanding Reference Work Award, this complete and comprehensive guide is the ultimate one-volume library for anyone interested in the outdoors. This monumental work features extensive coverage of:
Fishing * Hunting * Firearms and shooting sports * Camping * Boating * First Aid * Archery and bowhunting * Sporting dogs * Fish species * Big game * Small game * Upland game and waterfowl * A complete listing of private organizations * Government information sources
To broaden the scope of this established reference work, Vin T. Sparano, Editor Emeritus and Senior Field Editor of Outdoor Life, has compiled brand-new chapters and sections on survival, all-terrain vehicles, and watersports (including kayaking, water skiing, and personal watercraft). He also included new information on GPS (Global Positioning System) and increased focus on such sections as fly fishing, sporting clays, backpacking, nutrition, and new first-aid breakthroughs in outdoor emergencies. With nearly 400 new photographs and 100 drawings added to the already more than 1,300 illustrations, The Complete Outdoors Encyclopedia illustrates the newest technology and the latest trends in the outdoors.
Representing decades of research and authoritative writing by Vin T. Sparano, this is the definitive guide that bridges all aspects of the outdoors today. It is a must-buy for anyone and everyone venturing outdoors.

"What a tremendous reference! There is no comparable source of so much valuable and practical information anywhere else-nor by a more competent authority." --Ken Schultz, contributing editor, FIELD & STREAM
