Product description

"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. The author, who popularized the term "bushcraft," claims its practice has many unexpected results. "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.

With his fellow soldiers, he conducted over 300 rescues, all of which were completed successful and without losses. After the war, Graves ran a bushcraft school for over twenty years. He was an Irish-born Australian poet and novelist who wrote over ten classic books on the topic, including The Bushcraft Handbooks. He died in 1971.
