Les Stroud is shipwrecked on the desert island of Tiburon. Part of the Sonoran desert, Tiburon is searing hot in the day and freezing cold at night. The coastline is a barren stretch with no source of fresh water. Les must distill seawater and scavenge for clams and oysters amongst the rocks and mud to survive. With the threat of stingrays in the shallow waters and coyotes hunting the shoreline, Les battles hunger, fatigue and loneliness in this 10-day survival ordeal.
Canadian filmmaker and survival expert Les Stroud, uses survival skills and knowledge to survive alone for up to ten days (seven days during the first three seasons and ten days during seasons four and five), in remote locales where he brings with him little or no food, water, or equipment. Each location was scouted and planned extensively by Stroud and his team who consulted with survival specialists and natives of each area. The fact that Stroud films the episodes himself and endures the challenges of the wilderness, while dealing with the concomitant mental, emotional and physical stresses, is a major focus of the show.
