Ray Mears' field craft skills have been acquired through working alongside many of the remaining hunter-gatherer communities of the world today. In this handbook he shares the knowledge gained through thirty years of study and invites you to use all your senses to appreciate the natural world in a new way. How to identify animals by their tracks and to follow them How to find animals in different weather conditions and at different seasons How to imitate animal calls What to wear, what kit to use 'These skills have had a profound impact on me, they have changed my feeling for nature. Developing an eye for wildlife similar to that of our prehistoric ancestors brings the joy of many close encounters with otherwise shy secretive creatures. But beyond even this it develops a deep sense of respect and connectedness with the world of nature and our beautiful planet.' - Ray Mears
