Scouting for boys By Baden Powell (1908)

SAS Survival handbook, and Mears' Survival handbook fighting it out for second place, but the above is number one.

One thing you have to go really old, or really modern, you want as original as possible. In a lot of ways it is of its time, but the back bone of it, is so up to dates its scary.

I really enjoy reading ray mears books, but my number one book was a gift from my father inlaw, it's called DON'T DIE IN THE BUNDU, produced for the rhodesian air force and other bodies who would venture into the bundu by Colonel D H Grainger. it is of course mainly centerd in and around the african bush but it has a fantastic amount of information and illustrations, " it is only in the practical application of bushcraft that we can know the secrets of our wild places".
