Fans of Ray Mears - the thinking man's Bear Grylls - will rejoice that their man is back, doing what he's best at...He begins in the vast Boreal forest that covers a third of Canada, which Mears illuminates in his wonderfully quiet, relaxed and understated way.
His clear message to go out and enjoy exploring nature calmly and safely is relevant everywhere. Eschewing wide-eyed adventurism, this survivalist is equally a naturalist and anthropologist for peoples who live at one with their environment
Amazing scenery, fascinating history and oodles of good old-fashioned scouting skills
Northern Wilderness is different, grown-up, wider ranging, a trip through the Canadian tundra in the snow show tracks of the early explorers...effortlessly beguiling
