Product Overview

Flash floods, avalanches, lightning strikes, cougar attacks--these wilderness dangers give a new meaning to the moniker Wild West. The true, and horrifying, tales recounting the misfortune of both tenderfooted tourists and seasoned adventurers will make anyone who is unprepared think twice before venturing out into the western landscape. Alluring as it is, the West is rife with vagaries that can turn a pleasant outing into a final outing for those ill equipped to face harsh conditions and rugged terrain. Even experienced wilderness experts fall victim to the West''s canyons, rivers, deserts, mountains, and wildlife. The price of foolish mistakes made in this forbidding landscape is not coming back alive. In this gripping book, the author goes beyond just telling the grisly tales of adventure gone wrong. A hindsight narrative offers insight into why these fun-seekers lost their lives and what measures could have been taken to prevent.Death in the West.
