"Around you in the bush are food and materials for shelter and the wherewithal for many emergencies."... The first sentence in this book gives a clue to the amazing collection of information on every aspect of bushcraft which it contains. The opening section deals with huts and shelters which can be made in the bush from bush materials; it tells also how to make ropes and cords from bark, fibres, and vines, and how to knot and lash ropes and cords. The second section deals with traps and snares, It's amazing how many ways there are to catch animals for food! Then, there's information on how to catch fish and other sea food without the usual lines and nets. The third section tells how to find water; this is an art in itself. There are secrets that enable aboriginals and experienced bushmen to live in arid regions, where city-bred men would die. The next section deals with the food that can be found in the bush. There is a section dealing with the business of preparing food; how to make fire places, how to light fires without matches; how to make camp beds and tables. Can you make a canoe or a coracle in the bush? This book tells you how. How about finding your direction and telling the time without a compass or watch? All this fascinating information is illustrated with detailed drawings. It is an invaluable book for campers and hikers, bushmen, soldiers and airmen, members of the Volunteer Defence Corps and Boy Scouts--All who would like to know how "to live off Nature."

"The 10 Bushcraft Books" is, as the title suggests, literally all ten of Richard Graves' "Bushcraft Handbooks" bound together as a convenient single volume, perfect for slipping into your rucksack. A true classic of the genre and out of print for more than forty years, "The 10 Bushcraft Books" is back! This edition is a perfect replica of the First Edition, with the same size, formatting, layout, page count and illustrations, but in a softcover format. Unlike the poorly-OCR'd, abridged, censored and dumbed down modern US market reprint edition titled "Bushcraft : The Ultimate Guide to Survival in the Wilderness", this edition of Graves' "The 10 Bushcraft Books" is the REAL DEAL, presented exactly as the author intended, with no deletions or omissions. It is the ONLY COMPLETE volume of Richard Graves' work available today. Remember: If it doesn't have the orange and black cover, it's incomplete and dumbed down. Don't waste your money buying anything else. The term "Bushcraft" describes the activity of how to make use of natural materials found locally in any area. It includes many primitive skills, and to these are added modern skills necessary for survival such as time and direction and the provision of more modern camp comforts and equipment. The practice of bushcraft develops in an individual a remarkable ability to adapt quickly to a changing environment. Because this is so, the activity is a valuable counter to today's specialisation, and it is particularly significant in youth training work. The author of "The 10 Bushcraft Books", Richard Graves, is a member of the Irish literary family of that name. He is also the author of: "Bushcraft: How to live in Jungle and Bush" "Survival Hints", a pamphlet which was included in all Allied jungle survival kits in the Pacific during WWII The Bushcraft Handbook "Ropes and Cords" The Bushcraft Handbook "Huts and Thatching" The Bushcraft Handbook "Bush Campcraft" The Bushcraft Handbook "Food and Water" The Bushcraft Handbook "Fire Making" The Bushcraft Handbook "Knots and Lashings" The Bushcraft Handbook "Traps and Tracking" The Bushcraft Handbook "Snares and Traps" The Bushcraft Handbook "Travel and Gear" The Bushcraft Handbook "Time and Direction" ...all authoritative works on bushcraft and the art of bush and jungle survival. An enthusiastic bushwalker, skier and pioneer of white-water canoeing, Richard Graves foresaw how a knowledge of bushcraft could save lives in the Second World War. To achieve this end, he initiated and led the Australian Jungle Rescue Detachment, assigned to the American Far East Air Force. This detachment of 60 specially selected A.I.F. soldiers successfully effected more than 300 rescue missions, most of which were in enemy-held territory, without failure of a mission or loss of a man. An essential preliminary for rescue is survival, and it was for this purpose that the notes for these books were written. These notes were later revised and prepared for a School in Bushcraft which was conducted for nearly 20 years. As far as is known, "The 10 Bushcraft Books" are unique. There is nothing quite like them, nor is any collection of bushcraft knowledge under one cover as comprehensive.

Tourism is becoming one of the world's most important economic activities. There is hardly a place on earth, no matter how inaccessible, that has not been visited by some traveler seeking adventure, enlightenment, or simply change from the familiar world back home. In this pathfinding book, David Zurick explores the fastest-growing segment of the travel industry—adventure travel. He raises important questions about what constitutes the travel experience and shows how the modern adventure industry has commercialized the very notion of adventure by packaging it as tours. Drawing on two decades of personal travel, as well as the writings of others, Zurick unravels the paradox of adventure travel—that the very act of visiting remote places untouched by Western culture introduces that culture and begins irreversible changes. This first in-depth look at adventure travel opens new insights into the physical, philosophical, and spiritual attributes of the travel experience. Written in a lively style, the book is intended for everyone interested in travel and its effects on both travelers and the people and places they visit.

The 1st Battalion, The Rhodesian Light Infantry, was one of the most innovative and successful counter-insurgency units in modern history. Formed as a commando battalion in 1964 after the dissolution of the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland, the RLI was an all-white unit made up of South Africans and men from the UK, Europe and US. It was a key weapon in independent Rhodesia's struggle against the Zimbabwe African National Liberation Army and Zimbabwe People's Revolutionary Army during the bloody Rhodesian Bush War. This comprehensive study explores the unit's dramatic history, revealing the RLI's fearsome airborne and combat capacity, which gave the unit, at times, near total tactical superiority against its opponents.
