More and more people are taking part in active pursuits such as walking, orienteering, rock climbing and camping as a means of getting away from the stresses and strains of everyday modern urban life. Life outdoors can be as simple as a weekend's camping and gentle walking or as challenging as whitewater kayaking and remote jungle or high country treks. Whichever route you take, The Campcraft Handbook is designed to help you prepare and live safely through your adventures. Whatever the terrain, be it temperate lowlands, mountains, desert, polar regions or jungle, this highly practical book shows you how to survive outdoors, starting with a look at the planning stage and the basic equipment necessary, and moving on to campcraft skills; nutritional needs; protecting the environment; understanding weather patterns; emergency signalling; and essential first-aid know-how. Seasoned and novice travellers will discover all they need to know to make a success of their expedition and to get the most out of experiencing and enjoying the great outdoors, whatever the wilderness and weather conditions.
