Bushwalking and Camping is written in a simple, concise style which is easy to read and follow, with numerous illustrations to illuminate the text. This book is an invaluable tool for anyone who wants to learn the basic skills necessary for bushwalking and related activities, as well as for more experienced walkers who wish to extend their current bush skills, or apply them to different adventure activities such as rock climbing or ski touring.

Bushwalking and Camping is above all an invitation to enjoy the bush, to learn about it, to conserve it, and to experience it first hand.
