Bear Grylls teaches kids some survival skills on his China book tour
Britain's Bear Grylls, who is famous for the television series "Man vs. Wild" on The Discovery Channel, showed up at a bookstore in Beijing on Thursday, as children with a passion for the outdoors queued up to get his signature in their copy of his new book.

Bear Grylls, often dubbed "the man at the top of the food chain", had finished a jungle scouting adventure with those kids on Wednesday, where he taught them some key skills from his new book for surviving in the wilderness.
"Mud is one of the most important things in the world," he said. "I would be confident with mud on my hands, it makes me feel like there is a warrior living inside me. It also provides me courage to overcome obstacles in life." He also showed the kids how to pitch a tent, and shared stories with them about the times he's eaten bugs.
In the next stops on his China tour, Bear Grylls will hold events on the themes "learn about self-defense from Bear", "one more book, one more life", and "parenting kids with Bear."
