'Practical help for everybody from the well-equipped camper van party to the solitary drifting backpacker: what to take - how to look after travelling animals - the choice of campsite - building fires - making an oven - preparing and cooking meat - gathering unusual edible plants - finding ingenious alternatives for staple foods - basic first aid - how to avoid being arrested as a foreign spy - these are just some of the topics Christina Dodwell ranges over, backing up the facts all the way with lively personal experiences of canoeing down the Congo river, living among remote pearl fishers of the Thai peninsula, with the neolithic tribesmen of Papua New Guinea, or crossing the African desert with horse and camel.'
