PUBLISHED IN HARDBACK 24TH NOVEMBER, 2011 BY SHORT BOOKS, £20

Tim, Thom and Trevor – three best mates from University with a shared love of the outdoors – undertook a challenge: to survive for a month on their collective knowledge of nature and the wild and not much else.

These three lads knew their Ray Mears and Bear Grylls, but nothing could have prepared them for the challenge of having to catch, trap or blag their way to a full stomach everyday, let alone pitch a tent on a freezing beach in the pouring rain.

Three Hungry Boys
brings together everything they learnt on their summer adventure, spear fishing, caber tossing, mushroom picking, goose culling, lobster baiting, paddle surfing, log rafting, whisky tasting, urchin eating, salmon smoking, shark swimming and even sword dancing. All without spending a penny (not that kind).

With an entertaining mix of recipes, how to’s, survival tips, hilarious anecdotes, this book will inspire you to get out there into the great outdoors this year and have an adventure all of your own.

Feature ideas / discussion points

The boys could write a guide to the best adventure that can be had for your Winter holiday, keeping both the kids and parents happy this December. This could include educating the kids on the sustainability of British wildlife and respecting the environment.

Top Ten Tips on How to Survive in the Wild if you’re not Bear Grylls but more your average British male with a rusty Swiss army knife and ten year old tent.

Travel/Money – A travel piece on recession busting weekends in the UK that don’t need to cost a penny.

Cookery – Extract Trevor’s delicious recipes, from Chanterelle Tartlettes to Sea Urchin Ceviche. Trevor is more than happy to demonstrate his cookery skills and whip up something tasty from your garden. The boys are all massive advocates of sustainability and only eating locally sourced foods.

About the Boys

Trevor, Tim and Thom aka The Three Hungry Boys met at Plymouth University in 2000 and have been firm friends ever since. Sharing a love of marine biology, outdoor life and eating whatever they can get their hands on, their Channel 4 TV programme, The Three Hungry Boys has been a huge success and the second will air in the new year. This series will see the boys let loose in the South West of England as they aim to survive another month with nothing more than a tea bag and a strong dose of humour allowed for supplies.
