This review is from: My Outdoor Life (Hardcover)
I've watched all of Ray Mears TV programmes, right from the time he started out on BBC's "Tracks" about twenty years ago, and have always been so impressed by his knowledge, enthusiasm, skills and lovely personality. This book is a joy to read and confirms what I always thought about Ray - he's thoughtful, respectful, intelligent and personable. And the fact that he's [for the most] part self-taught shows just how motivated he is to learn - when Ray started out [on TV] no-one else was doing what he did. It is our good fortune that he is keen to pass on his knowledge about survival skills, the world's indigenous peoples and bushcraft in general.
I recommend this book very highly.
