SportsLit (Season 6, Episode 4) - Les Stroud - Around the World with Survivorman
We finally landed Survivorman.
Les Stroud is a creator who is best known for his world famous TV show, but he is also a musician and an author.
In March 2021, he released Wild Outside: Around the World with Survivorman, his first book aimed at a youth audience. It recently won a Yellow Cedar Award presented by the Ontario Library Association for nonfiction books intended for readers in grades 4 to 8.
Using condensed and illustrated versions of his adventures, Stroud intersperses nature facts with advice on spending time outside, no matter where that is.
After the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic delayed his appearance on SportsLit, Les joined us to discuss this book as well as his latest projects, plus some humble career tales from a man who does things his way.
