Description

How to survive in the wilderness with just a knife -- and this book.

Many have died in the Australian bush who might have lived had they known the appropriate survival skills. Bushcraft covers all areas of survival and camping activities: making ropes and cords, building huts, camp craft, finding food and water, making maps, starting fires, tying knots, and fashioning hunting and trapping gear - virtually every technique required to stay alive in the woods. With over 400 black-and-white illustrations and photographs, this book explains how to make use of natural materials found locally in any area, conserving instead of destroying native flora and fauna. It describes many of the skills used by primitive man, adding to these the skills necessary for modern man's survival, such as methods for determining time and direction.

This book addresses all areas of survival and camping activities including:

  • Making ropes and cords
  • Building huts and camp craft
  • Finding food and water
  • Map-making
  • Starting fires
  • Fashioning hunting and trapping gear

The author, who popularized the term "bushcraft," claims its practice has many unexpected results. By developing adaptability and honing the five senses, it will also improve your self-esteem and your ability to overcome difficulties in everyday tasks. The practice of bushcraft encourages self-confidence and counters the narrowing influence of modern living by broadening your horizons. Bushcraft is a clear, accurate, and reliable resource for anyone who wishes to face nature on its own terms with just a knife and this book.

    Every page was pure gold. If Jesus would have been a woodsman this guy would have been one of His apostles.

      Comments about Bushcraft: The Ultimate Guide To Survival In The Wilderness:

      Cool little book that has a bunch of good information and guides to topics useful in bushcrafting camping and outdoors survival scenarios.

      Small enough to put into a pack and forget about till you need. Inexpensive, I think well worth the money for the information it provides.
