Overview

The wilderness expert shares his life story, recounting how he developed his bushcraft skills and his philosophy of the outdoors, as well as sharing personal stories

Here, Ray Mears tells of his childhood and the formative years when he first developed a passion for both bushcraft and the martial arts skills that are central to his life. Having traveled the world several times over, he is no stranger to risk and has had more than his fair share of dangerous and life-threatening encounters. But his life is so much more than a tale of derring-do. Shortly after he returned to England having narrowly survived a serious helicopter crash, his father died. Just a year later, he had to face the death of his first wife Rachel. The book conveys the many sides of Ray Mears, taking us up to the present day, including the previously untold story of his involvement in the man-hunt for murderer Raoul Moat. This memoir gives all readers a chance to share a life story as rich and as inspirational as a walk in woods with the man himself, Ray Mears.
