How to be Wild : We are All Wild. it's Just That Civilisation Keeps Getting in the Way Paperback
by Simon Barnes
As every one who has patted a dog, smelled a rose, taken a walk, or even had a drink in the garden well knows, humans have a soul-deep need for non-human forms of life.
This book is about pushing our birthright of wildness just that little bit further.In How to be Wild, Barnes takes us on a journey through a year, from one raucous spring to the next with sparrows and flying squirrels, elephants, badgers and mosquitoes, as his companions. And again and again, he helps us to realise an essential truth: that by enjoying the wild world, by seeking to understand the wild world, our own lives become richer and more satisfying.
