The original No Need To Die written and illustrated by Eddie McGee was first published in 1977 and is for many still one of those iconic survival books. As the survival movement really picked up momentum in the eighties the book sat alongside many other great books including the SAS Survival Handbook (1986) by Lofty Wiseman.

The late Eddie McGee a former paratrooper and army survival guru was one of the first leading exponents of bushcraft and survival, his legendary skills were adapted through remote expeditions around the world.

Along with training the military, Eddie regularly appeared on television with his own survival series and was the founder of the first National Survival and Tracking School where students from all walks of life ranging from air hostesses to celebrities would learn and enjoy the skills of bushcraft and survival training.

Perry McGee, son of the late Eddie McGee and no stranger to the wilds himself, has literally followed in his father’s footsteps and with over forty years experience in survival, tracking, training and leadership, now provides us with a unique chance to learn from their joint experiences.

Perry loves teaching his skills and willingly assists others where possible, especially the young. A talented specialist tracker he is the founder of the National Tracking School and author of a number of books including The Tracking Handbook.

The URBAN TRACKING CHALLENGE MAN HUNT - two challengers from the Daily Telegraph and Men's Fitness magazine took part in a manhunt, across the city of London. NTS tracking units tracked the challengers across the city to five locations. Without compromising their positions they used surveillance and tracking techniques to obtain evidence of their positions, in an urban tracking scenario. The challenge was organised to promote Discovery Channel's new series Manhunt, which follows Navy SEAL through treacherous terrain with nothing but a basic survival kit and canteen of water as he attempts to evade capture in 48-hours or less, pitting Joel Lambert against the world's most elite military and law enforcement tracking teams. Two challengers, Jake Wallis Simons (Daily Telegraph) and Max Anderton (Mens Fitness), took part in this escape and evasion taster event with the National Tracking School.






Much like the show the challengers had limited resources and had to use tactics in an effort to evade the National Tracking School Operatives. The challenge is part of our Urban Tracking course which teaches escape and evasion, survival and advanced tracking techniques on a 1 day, 3 day or 5 day challenge. The course is open to individuals, organisations, groups and professionals. Try evading a tracking team using anti-tracking, escape and evasion, survival techniques and much more.
