'a guidebook that might just save your life' HERALD SUN

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

This new edition also features Bob's OUTBACK DRIVING guide.

The outback of Australia is one of the most unforgiving regions of the world, but Bob Cooper is committed to protecting and enhancing the experience people have when venturing out into the bush.
