Bushcraft & Wild Food Foraging
Bushcraft & Outdoors Skills
Bushcraft is a term used to describe living at one with nature, and the skills and knowledge required to do so.
Bushcraft skills include; fire making, tracking, hunting, shelter building, using tools such as knives and axes, foraging, carving wood, making containers from natural materials, twine-making, and many other things. Pure bushcraft uses only the natural things around us, modern bushcraft utilises the minimum of modern equipment.
These outdoors skills would all have been a part of daily life for our ancestors, and are still practised by many tribes and remote people throughout the world.
Bushcraft helps us to rediscover our roots, live responsibly and sustainably, to find and enjoy our part in the natural world.

Through Ray Mears' knowledge of the countryside and the research conducted specially for this book with archaeo-botanist Gordon Hillman, we learn many new, useful and often surprising things about the amazingly rich natural larder that still surrounds us.
Wild food is all around us, growing in our hedgerows and fields, along river banks and seashores, even on inhospitable moorland. In Roger Phillips and Martyn Rix's Wild Food, hundreds of these plants are clearly identified, with colour photography and a detailed description.
Whether it is a mini adventure into the woods and countryside, a camping trip or simply exploring your own back garden, it's hard to get enough outdoors time, so what better way to do that than with the art of bushcraft?
