"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.

In a contest of survival between the strongest of men and the smartest intellectual, it is the one who is most adaptable to change who will win. Strength and IQ may affect the overall results of bushcraft practice, but they are not the prime requirements for its success. If man is willing to venture into the woods and take whatever he finds to his advantage, to read nature instead of manipulate it, then his journey shall become a success. Wilderness Survival versus Bushcraft Although similar in nature, wilderness survival and bushcraft are two distinct genres. The confusion often arises from their overlapping characteristics, which involve ways of surviving in the wild. The main distinction between the two is the amount of time spent in the backwoods. Wilderness survival utilizes short-term survival tactics where the main goal is to escape the woods ASAP (survivors usually take an average of 72 hours to escape). Bushcraft, on the other hand, involves a complete immersion in the natural environment; it is a long-term stay.
Es sollte eine normale Bergtour werden, doch plötzlich fand sich Aron Ralston in der Falle: eingeklemmt zwischen einem 500 Kilo schweren Felsbrocken und einer Canyonwand. Ohne Hoffnung auf Rettung, weil niemand wusste, wo er war ... Nach fünf Tagen und Nächten voller Angst und Verzweiflung griff der 28-Jährige zu einer drastischen Maßnahme: Mit einem Taschenmesser amputierte er seinen eigenen Arm und rettete so sein Leben. Woher er die Kraft zum Durchhalten und den Mut für die unvorstellbare Befreiungstat genommen hat, davon erzählt Ralston in seinem packenden Bericht.
'Fifty years into my life journey I realise that, while I love remote wild places and the peoples I meet there, it is in forests that I find the greatest joy. Of all the forests that I have explored, it is the great circumpolar Boreal forest of the North that calls to me most. Here is a landscape where bush knowledge really counts and where experience counts even more ... This book has been thirty years in the making.' Out on the Land is an absorbing exploration of, and tribute to, the circumpolar Boreal forest of the North: its landscape, its people, their cultures and skills, the wilderness that embodies it, and its immense beauty. The book is vast in scope and covers every aspect of being in the wilderness in both winter and summer (clothing, kit, skills, cooking, survival), revealing the age-old traditions and techniques, and how to carry them out yourself. It also includes case studies of early explorers, as well as modern-day adventurers who found themselves stranded in the forest and forced to work out a way to survive. So much more than a bushcraft manual, this book goes deeper, to the traditions and cultures that gave us these skills, as well as focusing on the detail itself. Ray and Lars's practical advice is wound around a deep love for the forest, respect and admiration for the people who live there and sheer enjoyment of the stunning scenery.

The Practical Bushcraft Survival Guide How to Find Food, Water, Shelter & Fire In The Wilderness and Survive Survival situations often don't start off as such; like a day hike or a fishing trip. It is only when things go wrong that you are suddenly faced with life and death survival situation. Therefore, you want to plan for the unexpected. Before you set off into the woods, take the time to go through all contingencies. Disasters often don't come with advance notice, nor does it send you any early warning signs. So learning how to survive in the wilderness can truly save you and your family's life. After started hiking, backpacking and camping out for many years in 17 different countries, I have mastered the art of survival in the woods. Because I have done it for so long, and I will tell you, it was a 'learn as I go' process for me. But for you, it may not be that easy. Why may you ask? What if there is a severe natural or man-made disaster happens suddenly, what if a war breaks out? Would you be ready? I have been teaching hiking, camping, and backpacking for many years throughout many countries, but only within the last three years, a group of people in Columbia asked me to teach them survival tactics in the woods. That question opened my mind and eyes wide open; I knew why they had asked me to teach them, but what if similar civil and or political unrest or war breaks out in our country, how many of us would be ready? More importantly how many of us would actually survive? I believe every one of us needs to know at least the basics of wilderness survival like what bushcraft skills you need, what bushcraft gears and supplies you will require along with how to navigate yourself in the wilderness. This way if you ever need it, you will have the knowledge. Along with the knowledge, let's make a survival pack ready just in case. In that pack, we can put a few necessary gears, and few "must have."s. Once you do these two things (first gather the basic knowledge of survival, second get the emergency pack ready), I believe you will sleep better at night.

Outback Survival is a timeless, practical run down on everything you need to know to survive in the outback. Bob Cooper's incredible bushcraft skills have been developed through more than 25 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 with 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, dropping himself off in the 42C heat of the Australian desert with only a map and soap box sized survival kit, no food, water or sleeping gear, and a 10 day walk across 160km of rough terrain back to safety. He did this alone and showed that with the right knowledge of the land, you can survive in even the harshest of conditions. The outback of Australia is one of the most unforgiving regions of the world, but Bob is committed to protecting and enhancing the experience people have when venturing out into the bush.
