Bear is dropped off the Skeleton Coast in Namibia. After a day and night on the beach he heads inland across 60 miles of desert in a search for water. Meeting up with a group of San Bushmen he hunts porcupine.
Bear is air lifted into the treacherous Sanyan mountains in Siberia. Bear meets the Tuvans; yak herder descended from Genghis Khan who have lived there for 20,000 years, and learns some survival techniques from these cold climate experts.
Despite his warnings about safety Bear takes some questionable risks in the Belize rain forest. He swings on a vine over a gorge, crosses a narrow log bridge above raging river rapids near a convergence of waterfalls and confronts a boa constrictor. But Bear finally builds a raft that doesn't sink.
