Haynes has joined forces with the Scout Association (who better?) to create this hands-on, inspirational manual for enjoying the great outdoors, whether hiking for the day or camping in the back of beyond. Featuring step-by-step guides to a range of key ‘backwoods’ skills such as trekking, navigating, camping, firelighting and cooking, backed by hundreds of colour photographs, this is the ultimate introduction to outdoor skills for families and anyone wanting to ‘get out there’.
Developed with The Scout Association and written and endorsed by the Scout Association, this is a highly practical guide from the people who wrote the rules about getting the most from the great outdoors – from camping to canoeing, from navigation to knots. Introduced by Chief Scout, Bear Grylls, this is the manual that finally shares the secrets of outdoor living.
