The Rough Guide to Travel Survival is the essential field manual for every adventurous traveller, or those that just want to feel a little safe while away. This book is arranged into easy-to-read chapters covering preparation, basic travel, survival strategies, environment-specific situations (arctic and mountain, sea, political hotspots, natural disaster, desert, jungle) with easy-to-follow diagrams throughout. Each of the main chapters has step-by-step, practical advice for all situations, in all environments, from surviving an avalanche or navigating in the desert to coping with an ambush or a hostage situation. The book concludes with a set of comprehensive and indispensable appendices packed with instructions, from first aid to making a fire.

From page 98:

FINDING FOOD - INSECTS Bugs don’t look nice to eat, but they’re a survivalist’s most reliable energy source (insects are 65-80 percent protein, compared to the 20 percent in beef). There are 1462 recorded species of edible insects; when choosing, avoid caterpillars and spiders as well as all insects that are hariy, brightly colored or have a pungent odor.
