What People are saying about this

Edward Abbey
"Rick Bass is a lively, alert, fully engaged writer with something to say -- and he says it good."
Dan O'Brien
"To read this book is to take a first step towards coming to grips with our own wildness. It is a lovely book about important things, and written in a style that will soon be identified with Rick Bass, a style that enhances the material and makes it accessable to anyone who is listening. 'Wild to the Heart' is a worthy addition to Thoreau, Muir, Dillard, Abbey tradition of American literature that continues to gain importance as we struggle to understand our place in the natural world."
