It was first published on 1 March 1990 by The Oxford Illustrated Press and then re-printed by The Promotional Reprint Co Ltd[2] in 1994. It is a guidebook to outdoor life, survival and camping. The difference between the two versions being that the colour photographs were printed on glossy paper in the First Edition. It contains sections on the basics of outdoor skill, making fire by friction, obtaining food, and working with stone, flint and bone as well as working animal hide.
