AUTHOR: World-renowned wilderness medicine pioneer and physician Frank Hubbell, compiling his 40 years of wilderness, disaster, travel, and front-country medical research, care-giving and SOLO teaching experience. "Dr. Frank is a walking encyclopedia; talk with him for 5 minutes and it's like you've learned a whole book of information!" - MEDIC Instructor Matt Rosefsky

CONTENT: A teaching text and a reference book. Includes all Wilderness First Responder course topics, and *more.* Used as the SOLO Wilderness First Responder and Wilderness EMT course textbook.

TESTIMONIAL: On 12/6/2014, MEDIC Instructor Matt Rosefsky wrote to the author and his team:
"I just completed a thorough, cover-to-cover read of WILDCARE. What an astounding achievement! Go team!
> Awesome content, something for *everyone* at *all* levels to learn
> Great injections of humor
> Great sidebar factoids
> Awesome photo backdrops, graphics, images, colors, variation in font styles, colors, and orientation
> Spectacular editing job
All of the above perfectly blended to create a highly-enjoyable, visually-pleasing, always-interesting, never-tiring learning experience!

-- If you're CURIOUS TO LEARN about wilderness / travel / disaster first aid ("outside the Golden Hour" first aid applications -- though much of the book content applies directly to front-country emergencies as well, especially in the critical first 5 or 10 minutes before the ambulance arrives), then this should serve as an awesome one-stop resource. Pair it with a hands-on SOLO course such as what's offered at or and then the two together – great textbook, plus hands-on know-how – will serve you well.
-- If you've TAKEN A FIRST AID COURSE -- whatever level, from basic through instructor -- this will be an excellent must-have reference manual for you, delving into greater depth in many of the topics you've learned, plus more topics you most likely have not learned.
-- If you're ABOUT TO TAKE A FIRST AID COURSE, and have the time to read through before class, you'll be able to soak in so much more during class with this outstanding foundation.
> If you're about to take the full SOLO WFResponder course (typically 8 or 9 days, not the 2-day class), this textbook comes free with your tuition, so don't buy it here – you'll receive it in class.
> If you're about to recertify your WFR, you most likely will *not* receive this in class, so consider ordering it here.
> If you're about to take the 2-day SOLO WFAid course, this is not your course textbook – yours has only 100 pages. Participants of the MEDIC SOLO dWFA course need to decide if you want your 100-page textbook sent to you in advance for $5 as noted on the course registration web page, or if you have time to delve in much more deeply and order this incredibly-far-more-comprehensive 330-page book (not only more pages, but much more content on each page).
