It seems almost second
nature for many Australians to go wandering out into the bush, but how many
would know what to do if they ran out water, got lost or needed to take shelter
for the night? In this new title, experienced science teacher, Scout leader and
children's author Peter Macinnis seeks to begin training young people in the
art of safety in the Australian environment.

Starting with bush
safety and moving on to look at surviving fire, earth movements, wild water,
wild winds and dangerous animals, Survivor
Kids is a fun introduction to the risks of the natural environment and the
ways in which children can try to avoid harm. As well as exposing some outdated
ideas - such as sheltering in a doorway during an earthquake - Macinnis explores
survival stories from the past to find tips for today.

is an absorbing read for outdoor and indoor adventurers, with plenty of stories
to fascinate young readers and activities to test the skills of older ones. From
what to take on an hour-long walk through to how to build earthquake-resistant
buildings and ways to avoid sharks, interesting and fun facts help develop a
healthy respect for our planet and an awareness of safety.
