The official Boy Scouts of America guide to mastering outdoor skills and staying alive in challenging environments. This indispensable handbook enables everyone--expert and novice alike--to answer the call of the wild with confidence. Written by a commando veteran (and Oxford graduate) who served 18 years in the British Army and trained soldiers in jungle warfare, the Complete Wilderness Training Manual will teach you to expect the unexpected and to "be prepared" for any situation that may arise.

Step-by-step instructions and clear photographs and artwork explain the key principles of survival in an engaging, accessible way. You'll learn how to find food and water, construct an emergency shelter, safely navigate all kinds of hostile terrain, and handle any challenge the outdoors can throw at you.

"Although it has plenty in its rich store of information and advice for the weekend camper and nature lover, the book is fit reading for the hardcore survivalist as well." -- Booklist
