    Wow, What a shame this is no longer in print. After serving for a decent period and doing courses in bushcraft/survival, I hadn't learnt some of even the most basic of skills listed here.
    Sweet read, thanks for posting!

    Richard H Graves

    Richard H Graves, was an Irish born Australian; author of "Australian Bushcraft: A guide to survival and camping" and had an association with American servicemen during WWII, so he most probably would have been pleased to know that the survival knowledge that he had developed was shared and appreciated by the Americans at this site.

    They still appear in 2nd hand bookshops and library sales- I still have my copy from when I was in Cubs, and recently found a copy for 50 cents, yep, 50 cents, lol, in a library sale-will be for one of the kidlets one day.
    I love my PDFs and printouts as much as anyone; but having a hardcover printed copy is still my preference. Must be getting old, lol

    Bushcraft was quoted in "Shelter"

    I came looking for Bushcraft after seeing a reference to it in Shelter, a lovely book by Shelter Publications from 1973. I needed some usable detail on thatching a roof. The Graves' material shown in Shelter was perfect.
