interesting read, reveals a lot about Ray that I previously had never heard of such as his family life, love of judo and failed attempts to join the military.

I have always been amazed by the woodsman (I dont like the term Bushcrafter!) they call Ray Mears, reading his Biography as confirmed what I always thought...A true Englishman if ever there was one!

Even if to have a only slight interest in this amazing, passionate, dedicated and endearing gentleman then you must read this book.
I will not spoil it for you by describing Rays book, just buy it, read it, and find out why, if everyone on this planet were like him then the world would be a far gentler place!

A rare insight into a selfless soul consumed with capturing and sharing of wilderness knowledge being lost to our modern world. As I key this from my kindle it reminds me of my youth spent playing in the woods. Something I need to recapture in my adulthood. Time to bring nature safley back into my lifestyle. I wish Ray all best and applaud the essential work he does.

Fascinating. What a varied life. Every chapter a new experience. If you like reading about an adventurous, outdoor life this is the one. Ray Mears writes in a stimulating way and you won`t want to put the book down. I don`t know how one person could pack so much into one life - and he`s got a long way to go yet, hopefully. Laughter; hardship; tears - it`s all there.

Mears background and drive are the really engaging aspects, when he writes with passion things really light up. Many of the chapters feel like a bit of a rehash of selected episodes of his first couple of series. In fact some of the prose is almost word for word with his on screen commentaries.

The product placement is a little uncomfortable and doesn't sit well, neither does the frequent griping at Grylls.

I've always loved Ray Mears TV programmes even though I am not at all the outdoorsy type of person and found his style of presenting very appealing. He is so passionate about his skills and so eager to pass them on. One learns so much. So I looked forward with anticipation to reading about his life and I was not disappointed. Very enjoyable.

I got this as a Christmas present for my dad, who really enjoys the TV shows made by Ray Mears and the outdoors in general. This was a particularly good buy as Ray Mears really does not court publicity at all, so this provides a truly fascinating insight into his life and the philosophies by which he lives.

I really enjoyed reading this book and it gave me a much better understand of what makes Ray Tick. I'd love to have the opportunity to attend one of his courses, if only I could afford it.

Some very interesting stories. Can't wait for the next tv series on the western frontiers.

Ray tells us how he came to be our foremost expert on living outdoors and surviving in the wild. In this book we find out how he found himself on his lifelong path, who inspired him and fed his passion for knowledge both known and forgotten.
A great Englishman and a great Human.
