Les Stroud: Beyond Survival

Les Stroud (Survivorman) has a new series airing soon on Discovery. This takes his survival theme a step further and looks at how the aboriginal and indigenous cultures of the world dealt with surviving the every day.

This looks a lot like what Ray Mears did in his World of Survival series, which I wholeheartedly encourage. It's extremely difficult for these societies to maintain and pass on their tribal knowledge to children who grow up in a more and more modern world. Shows like this have a chance to highlight the way these cultures exist, and bring attention to them that hopefully will allow their knowledge to live on.

Check out a preview of the series below.
