The award-winning Survivorman follows outdoor enthusiast and survival expert Les Stroud as he is abandoned for a week in a remote location with no supplies – no food, no fresh water, and no matches.
While stranded in the middle of nowhere Les must document his experience with his unique one-person camera rig and 50 pounds of camera equipment.
Each new location presents a new set of obstacles for Les with such diverse climates as the Costa Rican rainforest to the Arctic ice floes.
Les Stroud shows you the basics of wilderness survival in a variety of different situations. While he may not cover every possible scenario (he pretty well sticks to what he encounters), Les shows you at least one way to start a fire in each different habit (i.e. each episode) as well as covering major hazards you would face given the time of year and the location.
If you are an outdoors enthusiast, this will provide a great deal of entertainment. However, a student of wilderness survival will truly appreciate everything the Survivorman does.
