A clearly written short text on the diagnosis and management of common problems arising from environmental conditions and agents: burns, smoke and gas inhalation, caustic skin burns, cold injuries and hypothermia, radiation, altitude exposure, bites and stings, poisonous plants, electrical injury, sunburn, and water-recreation problems. A closing chapter focuses on emergencies in wilderness settings. Has a good balance between relevant basic science and practical clinical matters. (EJH)
