THE THRILLING #1-BESTSELLING MEMOIR BY THE ADVENTURE LEGEND AND STAR OF NBC''S RUNNING WILD WITH BEAR GRYLLS

Bear Grylls has always sought the ultimate in adventure. Growing up on a remote island off of Britain''s windswept coast, he was taught by his father to sail and climb at an early age. Inevitably, it wasn''t long before the young explorer was sneaking out to lead all-night climbing expeditions.

But this was just the beginning of his many extraordinary adventures. . . .

Known and admired by millions as the star of Man vs. Wild, Bear Grylls has survived where few would dare to go. Now, for the first time, Bear tells the story of his action-packed life.

His journey to this acclaim started in the UK, where his late father taught him to climb and sail.

Editorial Reviews

"World-famous ''extreme adventurer'' Bear Grylls had so far avoided telling his life story--until now. Well told, personable, fast-paced, and undoubtedly a fascinating read."
