ITHACA, NY – At Ithaca Barnes & Noble on Saturday, December 19 at 4 p.m., local co-authors, Dave Hall and Jon Ulrich, will be reading and discussing their new book, “Winter in the Wilderness: A Field Guide To Primitive Survival Skills”, a handbook for those who want to explore cold-whether camping and those who might find themselves in need of this critical information during an unexpected winter’s night out.  Whether used for pleasure or for survival, “Winter in the Wilderness” emphasizes the benefits of enriching and deepening our connection with the outdoors.

As the founder of Primitive Pursuits, one of the most distinguished outdoor programs in the Northeast, Mr. Hall has been practicing nature awareness, conservation, and survival skills for more than twenty years. Through his desire to build proficiency in this field of study, Dave has amassed a comprehensive understanding of the often-neglected discipline of winter preparedness.
