Free Online Bushcraft Books

There is an on-line edition available of a classic bushcraft text which is no longer available in print. “The 10 Bushcraft Books” by Richard Graves is an excellent source of bushcraft information. All of these ten books are available in HTML format for free download or printing. The PDF version is currently no longer available. Richard Harry Graves, the author, was born in 1898 in Waterford County, Ireland. Richard Graves died in 1971 in Sydney, Australia. He authored numerous books and is a former Commanding Officer of the Australian Jungle Survival & Rescue Detachment.

Here are the links to “The Ten Bushcraft Books” by Richard H. Graves

Book 2. - Huts & Thatching

My good friend Mungo has also provided some additional downloads for bushcraft books here:

PDF downloads to a few more bushcraft related texts.

Most of the bushcraft skills discussed in these books require only a sharp cutting implement, such as a knife, axe or machete. Learning bushcraft techniques will help you develop adaptability and the ability to improvise. This will lead to a greater degree of self confidence as your skills increase.

Got bushcraft?

Staying above the water line!
