Essential scouting skills for the great outdoors - the ultimate introduction to outdoor skills, for anyone wanting to 'get out there'

For years Haynes have published authoritative, reliable guides on a wide variety of subjects - notably their motor mechanics series - and for this guide they have joined forces with the Scout Association to create a hands-on, inspirational manual for enjoying the great outdoors, whether you're hiking for the day or camping in the back of beyond.

Authored by The Scout Association with a foreword by Bear Grylls, Chief Scout, it features step-by-step guides to a range of key 'backwoods' skills like trekking, navigating, camping, firelighting and cooking.

Drawing together material provided by a team of experienced Scout leaders, collated by editorial staff at the Scout Association, with hundreds of colour photographs, it's the ultimate introduction to outdoor skills for families.  

A brief history of the great outdoors and an introduction to scouting
The world around you: geography, environment, weather and wildlife
Camping: tents, wild camping, shelters, planning and packing
Navigation: using the sun and stars, maps, compasses and GPS
Fires and firelighting: quite simply all you need to know
Food: wild plants, foraging, fishing, backwoods cooking, outdoor ovens
Knots untangled: knots, lashings and pioneering projects
Safety and first aid: dealing with emergency situations
