Ray Mears is a household name through his television series Tracks, World of Survival, Bushcraft Survival, The Real Heroes of Telemark and many more. He is a private individual who shuns publicity whenever possible and would prefer to let his many skills tell their own tale - until now.
In MY OUTDOOR LIFE, Ray tells of his childhood and the formative years when he first developed a passion for both bushcraft and the martial arts skills that are central to his life. Having travelled the world several times over, he is no stranger to risk and has had more than his fair share of dangerous and life-threatening encounters to share with his readers. But his life is so much more than a tale of derring-do. Shortly after he returned to England having narrowly survived a serious helicopter crash, his father died. Just a year later, he had to face the death of his first wife Rachel. The book conveys the many sides of Ray Mears, taking us up to the present day - including the previously untold story of his involvement in the man-hunt for murderer Raoul Moat.

What an amazing individual he is i couldn’t put it down when I started! One of the best books I’ve read, a real insight into a wonderful man.
Excellent from start to finish
What an amazing man and great story.
As you read the book you just imagine him telling you his story. I wish it went on longer and talked more about his adventures and journeys but nonetheless the best autobiography I've ever read. A true legend.
A fantastic read from start to finish! It's amazing to read all of the exploits of Ray Mears in his own words and I was captivated by all of the things he has done and I had no idea of the roller coaster life he has led! Well worth the money, I can't wait to read it again!
