Outdoor Survival, a step-by-step guide to practical bush craft and survival outdoors

B1667

It continues to be surprising that so many embark on ambitious travels without bothering to ensure they know how to handle an emergency and not carrying the appropriate survival aids. Every year mountain and wilderness rescue teams comb inhospitable areas in search of those who wandered off without leaving messages, taking a means of communication, having maps, water and food for emergencies and without any reliable knowledge of first aid or a first aid kit. They are matched by those who put to sea in unreliable craft and without adequate knowledge of seamanship. Most are lucky and survive, largely due to the efforts of first attenders and volunteers who put there own lives at risk to save those who failed to prepare adequately.

Aquarium Manual

B1666

Fish keeping has always been a popular hobby. This manual really serves two purposes. It provides all of the information to decide where, or if, to start collecting fish. It shows how modern aquarium equipment makes it as straight forward to keep tropical and/or salt water fish as it does to keep fresh water fish that do not require their aquarium to be heated or cooled. The high quality of illustration makes this a book that will appeal to a wide readership if only for the illustrations and details of fish that can be kept successfully in an aquarium. It is also essential to deciding which fish to keep because their shapes and colours are frequently the starting point, determining what equipment will then be required to provide a suitable environment.
