Win The Survival Handbook!

While your average UK camper is unlikely to encounter anything more dramatic than a couple of bent tent pegs or a midsummer midge attack, it doesn't mean we couldn't all do with being a little more prepared for whatever the great outdoors might throw. And for all those budding Bear Grylls, The Survival Handbook is the essential companion for your next adventure in the great outdoors.

This bible of bushcraft and survival technique is the ultimate visual guide to camping, wilderness, and outdoor survival skills. Written by Colin Towell, an ex-SAS Combat Survival Instructor, this handy guide is bursting with survival tips, manual skills, camping essentials, and advice on how to survive whatever the great outdoors might throw at you.

From survival basics such as finding water and catching fish, to extreme situations like being adrift at sea or lost in the jungle, The Survival Handbook will steer you through life's toughest adventures in the world's harshest climates. It also comes in a real mess tin, so you can enjoy the spoils of your foraged, wild cooking!
