Review:

"The Complete Guide to Camping and Wilderness Survival is just that - complete - as well as a must have for those who spend time in the outdoors whether you are a beginner or a seasoned pro.  I always enjoy and appreciate a Vin Sparano Guidebook because they are full of useful and necessary information.  I never pick one up without learning something new. Why don't you pick one up today?"
—Oudoor Blogger Network

"[This book is] a treasure trove of information for anyone who spends time in the outdoors. It is chock full of great tips for fishermen and hunters, as well as for campers and hikers. It contains great information about fishing and outdoor cooking that is as complete as you’ll find in any book. Its section on first aid was enlightening and easy to understand. Its section on weather was highly informative. I definitely recommend Vin T. Sparano’s Complete Guide to Camping and Wilderness Survival to anyone who enjoys the outdoors."
—Northwest Herald

"If you do any kind of camping, you will be well served by reading the Complete Guide to Camping and Wilderness Survival. . . Want to know how to set up a backpack? It's in there. How about tying a Bimini knot? It's in there. Hopefully you will never need the survival information, but if you do, you will know how to build a shelter, find safe food to eat and build a good fire." 
—Cape Gazette

"You will find Vin Sparano’s Complete Guide to Camping and Wilderness Survival another useful reference book in his Complete Guide series. This volume gathers timely information and up-to-date advice on camping (including boat camping), winter and summer survival in a variety of terrains, and first aid for minor and major contingencies. As Sparano notes in the introduction, this is the kind of knowledge that helps forestall panic and missteps in the field during emergencies."
Gray’s Sporting Journal
