Description

There has been a slow but growing trend away from traditional holidays over the past few years, and today more than ever people are choosing to shun large crowds and predictability when they travel to remote destinations, instead seeking challenges that test their ability to survive in unfamiliar and even extreme environments.

Former Royal Marine Commando and outdoor survival expert Dave Pearce has travelled the world, visiting some of the most inhospitable locations. His impressive survival skills are based on having been there, done it and returned safely. This book distills Dave’s practical experience as he offers advice and instructions for intrepid survivalists on planned and improvised survival skills, whether for a weekend away in the woods or for the most extreme places on earth.

The first sections of the book cover essential skills such as equipment, navigation, camp craft, building shelter and finding food, first aid and rescue. Following chapters deal specifically with regions; Arctic and polar, jungle, desert and ocean, giving a uniquely all-encompassing world wide guide to survival in any conditions.

Dave Pearce is a former Royal Marine Commando. He is an adviser to the TV and film industries and has worked with outdoor adventurers Bruce Parry and Bear Grylls. Dave’s greatest mountaineering achievement came in May 2003 when he reached the summit of Mount Everest by its challenging North Face.
