This practical field guide is full of information about the essential skills needed for outdoor activities, with step-by-step instructions, tips and level-headed advice from Bear, plus cool facts and incredible illustrations. Don’t leave home without it!

Author Bear Grylls

Volumes One and Two

Flexbound, 192 pages

Great books!! Recommended ages are 8-13 but I think many adults would appreciate them also. They are 5½ by 7½; a good size to take in a backpack/ bag. Each book is divided into four sections. The pages are glossy which make them easy to turn. Clear color illustrations are all throughout the book and go hand in hand with the information.

A great resource and good gift idea. Highly recommend 🥾

Get Ready for the Great American Backyard Campout

NWF's mission is to inspire Americans to protect wildlife for our children's future

The 2014 Great American Backyard Campout will take place on Saturday, June 28!

Great American Backyard Campout® is a part of National Wildlife Federation’s efforts to help inspire Americans to protect wildlife, including a three-year campaign to get 10 million kids to spend regular outdoor time in nature.

This year, we’ve set a goal of getting more than 200,000 people across the country to camp out. AND, just in time for the 10th anniversary of the Great American Backyard Campout, National Wildlife Federation’s Board of Directors and other friends have offered to donate $2 in support of NWF’s wildlife conservation work for every person that participates in this year’s Campout— up to $400,000!

Pledge to participate in this year’s Great American Backyard Campout and help make an important difference for America’s wildlife!
