The foremost purveyor of bushcraft in the UK today.
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.
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.
