TO ALL AUSSIES!! - Survival Field Manual for Australia?

Post by EMEUTIER » Fri Apr 01, 2011 9:37 am

Basically I am interested to know if any such book exists like/similar-to the 'U.S. Army Survival Manual FM 21-76' but specifically for the oz outback regarding local vegetation, animals etc...

Does anyone know?
