Australian Bush Survival Skills (172 pages) is the most comprehensive survival manual ever produced for Australian conditions. It outlines proven techniques for dealing with outdoor emergencies and challenging environments, and is an absolute must for all who venture into our wild places - 4WD enthusiasts, bush walkers, kayakers, boat owners and anyone who works or travels in the bush. It contains hundreds of field-tested survival methods that have saved countless lives, and could save yours.




This book was amazing. It covers the settlement history, environmental impacts, natural history, poetry, writing, and folk law of the Australian bush. Don Watson grew up in the bush around Gippsland in Victoria and traces his and other families’ fortunes in the good times and bad. He recognizes the struggles to survive and the grim determination to chop down and shoot anything that stood in the way of making the land pay for itself. Somehow he has produced an ode to the bush which is also an environmental manifesto.
