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 absolutely love this book. It's packed full with bushcraft knowledge and inspiration. The book covers a lot of aspects of bushcraft and I love how the native people of the Boreal forest are highlighted. The reader also receives helpful tips on what to look for when buying certain gear and this is very helpful since there's a lot of choices out there (different materials etc). I live in Sweden and could have bought it from a local merchant but then it would not have been signed by Ray Mears. Of course I spent extra money on getting it shipped here just for that. This is a great buy.

  Bought Ray and Lars' book Out on the Land. Superb production values. Fascinating read. Very much an instructional book. Dense. Full colour. Delighted with it and thoroughly recommend but a coffee table book rather than a field guide.

  I enjoyed reading Out On The Land and devouring the many beautiful photographs it contains. What really makes it a stand out book for me is I have returned to it several times seeking out the gems of information contained within.

  Becoming a favourite. Not portable or a field guide, but a book to be cherished by the fireside with a dram. Now it's getting cold (in UK), I am enjoying this more focused and informative book on the boreal forest. Some great images, opinions and thoughts from the authority. Thank you both.
