Description

More people today are choosing to shun personal comfort when they travel to remote destinations, instead seeking challenges that test their ability to survive in hostile and often extreme environments.

Former Royal Marine Commando and outdoor survival expert Dave Pearce has traveled the globe and visited some of the most inhospitable environments. His survival skills are based on having been there and done it.

Dave’s practical guide for intrepid survivalists offers planned and improvised survival skills for a weekend away in the woods, or for the most extreme environments on earth.

The author

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. His greatest mountaineering achievement came in May 2003 when he reached the summit of Mount Everest by its challenging North Face.
