Also, Les Stroud has a piece in Studio Monthly, an extract from Les Stroud’s book about his experiences. It is called 'Survive!: Essential Skills and Tactics to Get You Out of Anywhere – Alive' and will be released from HarperCollins this month.
Read the article called Backwoods Warrior.
"At the end of the summer, I was checking my BlackBerry when I saw that my sister had sent me a text. Survivorman had just been nominated for three Gemini awards (Canada’s version of the Emmys). I was up for best director and best host, and the musicians on my show for best music. Seven years after I first pitched the idea and 22 years after I first had it, this moment came as a fleeting but sweet vindication of the many years of hard work and struggle before it. I learned a lot along the way and I can say with certainty there is no such thing as an overnight success.
At some point during the first media-frenzied days in 2000/2001 when the CBS series Survivor hit big, I began getting calls from radio and TV stations to do interviews. "We want to know if this is really survival or just bunk?" they would ask me. By this time, I had made a very small name for myself as an outdoor adventurer, filmmaker and survival instructor with my film Snowshoes and Solitude. "
