      Pack this book if you're going to be away from medical aid for more than 24Hrs. Medicine for Mountaineering is a guide written by doctors who are all mountaineers or are involved in wilderness activities. It gives excellent advice and clear procedures for all ailments and injuries you are likely to come across in the great outdoors. The chapters on tropical diseases and Acute Mountain Sickness are particularly good. The book is aimed at those who are unable to get assistance for long periods, so it's good for those travelling in the developing world as well as the more adventurous. It is published by a non-profit US group called "The Mountaineers" In the UK their excellent guides are published by Cordee. I consider this book essential kit when travelling or on expeditions.
