Have you thought about how you would deal with surviving out in the wild with nothing but the plants you could forage? Do you wonder how you would manage if you were lost and had to set up an improvised camp? Can you tie knots or make basic weather forecasts? All the above and much more are covered in SAS Survival, written by ex-SAS survival expert John 'Lofty' Wiseman.

Whether you are a camper, a hiker, a sailor or anyone else engaged in outdoor pursuits, this reference bible could actually save your life. Using clear line drawings and colour illustrations, survival techniques from the sea to the mountains and from the polar icecaps to the desert are described, complete with what to do in a whole range of medical and meteorological emergencies.The book is zipped inside tough camouflage fabric, making it perfect for carrying in a rucksack or pocket, and an inbuilt compass provides an essential tool for every walker or anyone in an emergency situation.
