Publisher's Summary

Remote desert locations, including the Chihuahuan Desert of northern Mexico, southern Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona, draw adventurers of all kinds, from the highly skilled and well prepared to urban cowboys who couldn't lead themselves (much less a horse!) to water. David Alloway's goal in this book is to help all of them survive when circumstances beyond their control strand them in the desert environment. In simple, friendly language, enlivened with humor and stories from his own extensive experience, Alloway here offers a practical, comprehensive handbook for both short-term and long-term survival in the Chihuahuan and other North American deserts.

The book is published by University of Texas Press.

Narration is completely off-putting

The narrathor's heavy New England accent and delivery make this a painful experience. This book is about surviving the Chihuahuan Desert of Texas. The content and recommendations are great. A neutral or West Texas accented reader would be appropriate - not this one. The word Javelina is pronounced Hav - a - leena, not Jav - e - lina.
