Out on the Land: Bushcraft Skills from the Northern Forest is a celebration of the history and culture of the northern wilderness - the largest forest on the planet - written by two world-renowned experts on bushcraft and survival skills, Ray Mears and Lars Fält.

"Fifty years into my life journey I realise that while I love remote, wild places and the peoples I meet there, it is in forests that I find the greatest joy. Of all the forests that I have explored, it is the great Boreal forest that calls to me most. Here is a landscape where bush knowledge really counts and where experience counts even more. This book has been thirty years in the making." - Ray Mears
Out on the Land is an absorbing exploration of, and tribute to, the circumpolar Boreal forest of the North: its landscape; its people and their cultures and skills; the wilderness that embodies it; its immense beauty. The book is vast in scope and covers every aspect of being in the wilderness in both winter and summer, revealing the age-old traditions and techniques that are used in this region, and how to carry them out yourself.

In Out on the Land, Ray and Lars share their wealth of knowledge on the clothing, equipment, cooking techniques and survival skills that are used to live comfortably in this awe-inspiring yet formidable region of our planet, via detailed chapters accompanied by breath-taking and beautiful photography, all taken by the authors themselves. Also included are case studies of early explorers, as well as modern-day adventurers who found themselves stranded in the forest and forced to devise a way to survive.

So much more than a bushcraft manual, Out on the Land goes deeper, to the traditions and cultures that originally gave us these skills, as well as focusing on the detail itself. Ray and Lars' practical advice is wound around a deep love for the forest, and respect and admiration for the people who live there. Through their work in their respective countries, Ray and Lars are both acknowledged authorities on bushcraft and survival skills, and for more than twenty years have worked together teaching survival in Arctic Lapland, some 200 km north of the Arctic Circle.

  I think this is a great book. Quite a lot of the content is covered in Rays and Lars other books, but this one has good photographs detailing outlining the techniques used in the book. I'm pleased with it as even though it's unlikely I'll ever be in a cold climate to try this stuff out, much of it is still applicable to our habitat.

  My favorite book out of all Ray's books. Everything is perfect in this book. The information that is provided for the reader is second to none and also photos and even the quality of the paper is top notch.

  By far the best parts of this book, in my opinion, are the comprehensive kit lists. I, like many, seriously struggle when it comes to knowing exactly what I should (and shouldn't) take on my trips. This is a particular issue when canoeing (which the book mentions) because the load capacity of a canoe is so great, I have a tendency of taking things just because it fits, not because I need it.

  Bought this book as a prezzie to self having bought most of his books. Once I received it and had a flick through I became increasingly disappointed. It's a weighty tome that is largely made up of pictures and similar survival advice from his previous publications. It's 336 pages that could easily be far fewer.

  An incredibly informative and beautifully presented book full of incredible photos and inspirational snapshots of rapidly vanishing ways of life. I would say that this is the most attractive bushcraft book I have seen. And to be signed by the man himself; what an honour!

  I purchased this as a present for my partner from my family ... lovely book, beautiful and practical and a must for any Ray Mears or Lars Falt fans. The photographs are amazingly beautiful and it is really interesting.

  I was able to attend Ray's evening 'lecture' in November 2017 at The Liverpool Philharmonic and a wonderful and entertaining evening it was. His marvelous comprehensive book 'Out on the Land' is superbly presented and so informative, it truly helps to put his lecture into perspective. If you are really interested in what Ray does and in the lore of nature and the backwoods, then purchase this book. It is a fabulous coffee table book, which will reveal a lot more of our world, both natural and ancient.
