Bushcraft The Ultimate Guide to Survival in the Wilderness by Richard Graves. Addresses all areas of survival and camping including: making ropes and cords; building huts and camp craft; finding food and water; mapmaking; starting fires; fashioning hunting and trapping gear; and much more. More than 400 diagrams, drawings, and photographs. 344 page softcover.

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.
