Product description

Ray Mears has travelled the world for much of his life learning and teaching wilderness skills. Now he reflects on his experiences in some of the most remote and beautiful places on Earth along with his own stunning photographs of the landscapes and peoples he's encountered. Fascinated by photography from an early age, each of Ray's pictures captures an instant of life, a powerful experience he has compared to hunting - to releasing the trigger on a rifle. This book reveals our dramatically changing planet and inspires us to look more closely at the changes around us. See our vanishing world through the eyes, ears and camera lens of Ray Mears.

Review quote

If Ray Mears isn't a Great Living Englishman, then goodness me, who is? The man is great, and he doesn't even begin to know how great he is. Ray is a persuader, pragmatist and populariser in the Durrell-Attenborough-Bellamy tradition. Robert Crampton, The Times Magazine Ray Mears is a bushman first and foremost and really can survive in any extreme environment. I can't think of a better companion in a crisis. Tim Lewis, GQ The foremost purveyor of bushcraft in the UK today. Geographical Magazine 'Ray Mears is a genius' Time Out 'Give the man a couple of twigs, a flint and a curved knife and he is transformed into a poet.' The Times
