In Man vs. Wild, Bear Grylls demonstrates all manner of
survival techniques when faced with nature's extremes--from
crossing piranha-infested rivers to fighting off grizzly
bears. He shows us how, armed with the correct know-how and
a determination to stay alive, all of us have the potential
to beat the elements in even the bleakest of situations.
Bear Grylls is the ultimate modern-day adventurer. He spent
three years with the British Special Forces (21 SAS), only
leaving when a near-fatal parachuting accident broke his
back in three places. Just two years later, Grylls followed
his childhood dream and became one of the youngest climbers
ever to reach the summit of Mount Everest. He is the host of
the Discovery Channel series Man vs. Wild, where viewers
tune in to watch Grylls show what it takes to find your way
out of the most inhospitable places on earth with little
more than the clothes on your back.
Now, in his book, he shows his millions of fans worldwide
how to do what he does in an utterly entertaining crash
course in surviving every kind of hard ecosystem--mountain,
sub-zero terrain, jungle, desert, and the sea. Grylls takes
readers on a journey to the corners of the earth and
recreates disaster scenarios such as being stranded on a
desert island or lost in the snowy Arctic. Perfect for
armchair adventurers and extreme sports buffs alike, Man vs.
Wild is destined to become a classic in adventure literature.
