Survival and Austere Medicine: An Introduction

I’ve been holding on to this .pdf for awhile.  I’ve skimmed through it, but it’s difficult to read if it’s not physically in my hands.  So I decided to print out the entire file.  If anything, a physical copy is likely more appropriate as a reference.  You know.  Just in case.
