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.
An excellent gift for any age who enjoy the outdoors.

'Simply by living a normal life, you have an excellent chance of becoming yet another statistic on the list of leading causes of death. Tilton prefers to ponder the alternatives; he presents 150 more interesting and unique ways to perish, from snake bite to elephant foot, rhino horn, and more. This book describes the details of how you can die, in some cases in a gory manner. He also covers ways to avoid death, should a life-threatening situation arise before you! The morals are very amusing, a couple that had particular resonance with me were: – Always hike with someone who runs slower than you – In lion country travel in the middle of a group of slower, weaker human beings. It’s a fun book and it certainly offers food for thought, if you will pardon the pun. Recommended for light weekend reading, or as an excellent gift for anyone who enjoys the outdoors.' - BASC
