Ray Mears is a household name through his television series Tracks, World of Survival, Bushcraft Survival, The Real Heroes of Telemark, and many more.

He is a private individual who shuns publicity whenever possible and would prefer to let his many skills tell their own tale - until now. In My Outdoor Life, Ray tells of his childhood and the formative years when he first developed a passion for both bushcraft and the martial arts skills that are central to his life.

Review lost one star alone simply for this book not being narrated by Ray Mears.. what a let down! Would've held more attention if that were the case.
Still, bitching aside, enjoyed the book and finding out things about Ray that would never have come across whilst watching one of his shows (and learning a few things things about bushcraft too).

This dowload provides the opportunity to hear and practise the language. The phrases are kept short and simple so that by listening two or three times, you can pick up the essentials of the Dutch language.

The format here is very easy to follow, and the pronunciation is good and gives sufficient time after the 1st example to practise (each example is repeated but the 2nd is cut a little short by the next English word/phrase).
Overall a handy quick start guide to learning Dutch; with repetition you'll be speaking it in no time.
