Sharing Knowledge To Make A Better World...

"The consuming desire of most human beings is deliberately to plant their whole life in the hands of some other person. I would describe this method of searching for happiness as immature. Development of character consists solely in moving toward self-sufficiency."

Episode 2 - Jungle Camp

Ray sets up a jungle camp in the Amazon jungle close to a native village, and sees how the Yekuana live in harmony with their environment.

He encounters poison dart frogs and climbs into the tree canopy to gain a unique perspective on the surroundings. He also offers an insight into the people who inhabit the dense tropical environment.

 

Plot Summary
Ray spent years and years honing his survival skills in some of the world's harshest landscapes, travelling to the most inhospitable and dangerous places on earth and attempting to exist on next to nothing.

Along the way Ray introduces us to people we'd never, ever meet and takes us to places Easy Jet simply doesn't fly to. Plus, he lets us in on some invaluable survival secrets. After all, you really never know when you'll be stranded somewhere with a penknife in one hand and a caterpillar in the other.

In Ray Mears' Bushcraft, the SAS survival guru pops along to the Amazon jungle, Tanzania, Canada, America and Sweden, and explores the important role played by bushcraft in the survival of indigenous people. He puts his own resourcefulness to the test as he lives alongside people such as the Yekuana of Venezuela and the Masai of Tanzania, learns new skills like making buckskin and hones his expertise in others like animal tracking.
