How to be Wild: We are All Wild. It's Just That Civilization Keeps Getting in the Way

by Simon Barnes
£8.99   paperback  Short Books (2008)

How to be Wild: We are All Wild. It As anyone who has ever patted a dog, smelled a rose, taken a walk, or even had a drink in the garden well knows, humans have a deep-souled 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, Simon Barnes takes us on a breath-taking year-long journey, from one raucous spring to the next, with elephants and mosquitoes, dolphins and flying squirrels, giraffes and butterflies as his companions. And again and again, he helps us realise an essential truth: that by enjoying the wild world, and by seeking to understand the wild world, our own lives become infinitely richer and more satisfying.

"This book - packed with so much insight and so many descriptions of wildlife encounters, always right on the button - leaves little for others to write."
(Birds Magazine)
"Barnes is a poet of the unexpected lifting of the heart."
(PJ Kavanagh)
