9781493027835: How to Die in the Outdoors: 150 Wild Ways to Perish

The Book That Makes Dying by Heart Attack Seem Downright Boring

Simply by living a normal life, you have an excellent chance of becoming yet another statistic on the list of leading causes of death. But Buck Tilton prefers to ponder the alternatives. In How to Die in the Outdoors, he presents 150 more interesting and unique ways to perish, from snake bite, elephant foot, rhino horn, and more!
With witty prose, Tilton describes not only the details of how you can die—some intriguingly gory, yet all based on facts—but also ways to avoid death should a life-threatening situation arise before you’re ready to leave this world for whatever afterlife there may be.

From the Back Cover:

By living a normal, boring life, you have an excellent chance of becoming yet another statistic on the list of leading causes of death. Of course, the process can be accelerated a bit by forgoing exercise, eating lots of fat, smoking, drinking heavily (not water), and worrying. Buck Tilton prefers to ponder the alternatives. In How to Die in the Outdoors, he presents 110 far more interesting and unique ways to perish, from such intriguing scenarios as snake bite, elephant foot, walrus tusk, and rhino horn.
In a straightforward style, with easy-to-understand terms and all laced with his trademark wit, Tilton describes not only the details of how you can die—some intriguingly gory, yet all based (more or less) on facts—but also ways to avoid death should a life-threatening situation arise before you’re ready to leave this world for whatever afterlife there might be.
