Whether you're planning an adventure or just want to learn outdoor skills, Survival for Beginners is the perfect book for you. Learn the basics - from picking the best tent for your expedition to knowing how to pitch it - with clear step-by-step illustrations. Find out why not to camp beneath a tree, how to peg out your tent and when to slacken the guy lines. Once you're safely under canvas, discover how to forage for food, light a fire with flints and cook up delicious grub.

Find out what to take on your expedition, how to plan your route and what to include in your essential survival kit. There are also tips and advice for what to do when encountering some not-so-friendly animals, such as crocodiles, jellyfish, dingoes, kangaroos and snakes. To help you find your way, you will learn how to use a map and compass, or the sun and stars as a guide. Discover the best way to hike over diverse terrains, including forests, swamps, forests, deserts and mountains. Learn, too, how to predict the weather by observing cloud formations and wind direction.

So start packing your backpack for an outdoor adventure and don't forget your copy of Survival for Beginners.
