If you have this book what's your opinion of it? Is it a practical bushcraft/survival book in the mode of Ray's Bushcraft or Essential Bushcraft books or more on the lines of his Northern Wilderness book - pretty pictures but not a lot of advice that you could put into practice if you crashlanded in the Canadian wilderness.

Defiantly worth getting in my opinion. Some of the info is regurgitated from his past books if I remember rightly but really worth a read. Its more like Rays book Bushcraft and a similar size. A great addition to any bookshelf. Maybe you could find it in a library to have a flick through before buying as I remember it being quite expensive.

I'm in Oz and it isn't listed in any library in the country according to the Trove database. Since Ray doesn't have the public profile here that he does in the UK I doubt that I'll find it in any physical bookshop either. Hence my asking for opinions before spending my hard-earned $.

Re regurgitating content I guess some of that's inevitable if the book is going to be a standalone guide to Northern survival since the authors can't assume that everybody has read the previous books.
