What the editors feel is the best of Sir Francis Galton's guide to international outdoor adventure and survival in the 19th century, originally titled The Art of Travel: Shifts and Contrivances in Wild Countries (1857) is found in this first abridged edition. Based on his exploration of Southwest Africa, his advice to Europeans traveling in hot climates includes techniques for battle starvation, making fire, pulling cattle out of holes, training an ox to carry a rider, crocodile shooting, and making ovens out of anthills.
