  This book is an extremely informative read, in a basic but captivating way. I was very pleased to also find it signed. I think this is a must for any beginner like myself, the journey has begun.

  Bought this to help me re-cap on the knowledge of 'Bushcraft' taught on my recent Fundamental Bushcraft Lochside course, and to prepare for the Traditional Living Skills course next year. It is set at an ideal level for this. Buying it before the course would have helped me too, so don't be put off if you're coming to this from the start. I didn't buy this before my course as I wasn't sure before whether I would be progressing deeper into 'Bushcraft'. So buyer beware this stuff grows on you! :) I would presume that anyone taking the Journeyman Course would be at least proficient at the skill level in the book, so perhaps not needed by that depth of knowledge.

  Very good! ... You can go out and read several survival or bushcraft books and you won't get that amount of good and useful tips. In the end you'll know more useful things about bushcraft if you just read that book, or better if you take it with you.

  As a Scout leader I find the practical approach for things like firelighting and shelter building really useful. The scouts love it too!

  Lovely product. Bought it for my Dad for fathers day and he was thrilled, has since said it is an excellent read and very informative. This book will probably even go camping with him along with his other Ray Mears one. Excellent to buy a signed book, makes the gift more special!

  This book contains useful information that I have never seen in any Ray Mears show, which makes me very happy with my purchase. Having a signed copy makes the book very special to me.
