"a guidebook that might just save your life" - HERALD SUN
"I reckon Outback Survival should be an essential addition to your glove box. While you can get an electronic version, I’d rather have the comfort of being able to refer to decades of experience without worrying about my iPad battery going flat before I’ve followed all the instructions on creating a solar still." - THE WEST AUSTRALIAN
ABOUT BOB COOPER:
For over 30 years Bob has honed his survival skills by learning from many traditional cultures. His experiences include living for extended periods with Aboriginal people in our Western Desert, sharing bushcraft abilities with the Bushmen of the Kalahari in Botswana also with the Lakota Sioux Indians in Dakota and jungle time with the Orang Asli people in Malaysia.
His roles have included instructing the Special Forces Units, conducting survival courses throughout Australia, lecturing with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Service on survival in the Mexican Desert and delivering wilderness lessons in the UK.
Bob’s long term commitment to protecting and enhancing the enjoyment of people venturing or working in the Australian bush, won his Outback Safety and Survival Course the prestigious Excellence in Safety Training Award, from the State chapter of the Safety Institute of Australia in 1996.
As a society we need to recapture the survival skills and empathy with nature which our ancestors instinctively knew. True appreciation of our natural environment may be the only factor that saves it and, on occasions, us.
Teaching is Bob’s contribution to this necessary new awareness.
