Geared towards the novice off-roader, the book introduces basic 4WD terminology, discusses off-road driving techniques, and includes basic information ranging from the history of 4WD to maintenance tips for off-road vehicles. Survival techniques for the weekend back country warrior are included to help plan and prepare for a day in the woods.
Written in an easy to understand format, this handbook explains what is untested hype and myths, and what techniques are questionable and potentially destructive. The author explains how things work, why they work, and what does, or does not, work, based on his experience in leading off-road expeditions.
