Audio Book Summary

Gather around for campfire stories with the MeatEater crew as they share sixteen harrowing true tales of survival, grit, and misfortune in the great outdoors—an immersive audio experience from the host of the long-running Netflix series and top-ranked wilderness podcast. 
In Campfire Stories: Close Calls, Steven Rinella invites seasoned hunters, anglers, adventurers, and outdoor professionals to share their tales of perilous adventures in the natural world, from run-ins with black bears and grizzlies to bad falls and severe hypothermia.

Whether set in urban forests or atop remote Alaskan peaks, the tales in Campfire Stories: Close Calls are rich with lessons on how to stay safe in nature, delivered in a conversational tone that conjures the feeling of sitting around a campfire sharing adventure stories with friends.
