You wouldn t expect a book that captures the true essence of wilderness to be written in a very tame and structured way, would you? Good, because this isn t it is a wild and epic travelogue by a passionate and perfect writer, who uses words like spices to flavour the journey. Jay Griffiths spent seven years and everything she had quite literally immersing herself in the most deeply wild places on our planet, and as a finale she wrote this delicious book! It is a travelogue and call to action to fight for, treasure and preserve the wilderness both within and around us. And it s also pure, wild poetry, so if you feel drawn to all three elements you will want to read it be warned, you ll have trouble putting it down!
