Bob Cooper’s incredible bushcraft skills have been developed through more than 30 years of experience in Australia’s harsh outback. He has picked up tools of survival from the experiences of living with traditional Aboriginal communities, instructing Special Forces units, lecturing with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Service on desert survival in the Mexican Desert, delivering wilderness lessons in the UK and learning the skills of the bushmen of the Kalahari Desert in Botswana.
Bob has put his own lessons to the test and showed that with the right knowledge of the land, you can survive in even the harshest of conditions. OUTBACK SURVIVAL tells you WHAT you need to do, and HOW, if you want to survive. Based on Bob’s Big 5 techniques, he explains:
- WATER – how to find, purify and transport
- WARMTH – fire and wind-proofing
- SHELTER – against rain, cold, wind and sun
- SIGNALS – by day and night
- FOOD – foraging and fishing
Outback Survival tells you what you need to do, and how, if you want to survive. This book takes you through every aspect of a survival situation from dealing with the fear, to bush tucker and the best way to use survival kits. With over 230 pages of trustworthy information and diagrams supported by real life stories of success and disaster in the wilderness. Eight pages of full colour photographs clarify on the finer points of bushcraft. A must read for anyone who enjoys the bush.
