Ray Mears Outdoor Survival Handbook was first published in 1992. Due to huge public demand it was reprinted in 2001, and remains a bestseller. When it was originally published, it was the first comprehensive guide based solely on bushcraft and survival tips.

The Outdoor Survival Handbook is a book of discovery, explaining the everyday skills you need to live in and enjoy the natural world without violating it. Season-by-season, this unique, fully-illustrated guide describes the resources available in the wild and how to use them.

  • Track and identify animals
  • Orienteer, using map, compass and natural navigation aids
  • Make tools and equipment from natural materials – pots, baskets, ropes and much more

  I'm a real fan of Ray Mears and it is very special to receive his book on bushcraft personally signed by Ray himself. The book includes all the information advertised about it and more. Having had the book only a few short weeks, I've been able to try several bushcraft techniques at my home. The book has provided me with a new appreciation of nature and a way to feel a true part of the environment. I highly recommend this book to anyone wishing to learn more about the native habitat all around us.

  Been looking for a book on survival techniques and this book fits the bill perfectly. Information is broken down into the four seasons which opens your eyes to the variations across the year. Great book for novice and experienced outdoor folk.

  Just received my signed copy. It is a real no-nonsense book with clear illustrations and although it contains no colour photographs, the overall quality of its content is not compromised. If you are a novice to the subject, start with this book!

  This is a great book - very informative and makes good reading. There are so many helpful tips, enabling us to enjoy the countryside fully and making use of the natural products we have all around us. We live in a wonderful world with so many natural resources at our fingertips - we just need to take a step back from technology and retrace our footprints so that we can regain some of the skills our ancestors had - this books helps usto do this.

  Full of interesting advice. If you already have the later Ray Mears Essential Bushcraft you probably don't need both.

  I only like to order books in hardback that I think someone else will want to read. As I teach my kids about the world around them they will want to read this book and practice it's teachings. It's a super book with great diversity in the subjects it covers. Thanks for writing it Ray.
