What people are saying about this book...
“Man is an animal, not domesticated but civilized… but as the years go on domestication becomes a bit closer to the truth. Why not re-claim a bit of the wild legacy of our forebears, leave the self-chosen zoo cages of perpetual four walls and not merely go for a walk in the woods, but truly engage with the environment? Grab a bit of that deep visceral “I am part of this!” If these words strike a chord, this book is a mighty fine guide to how to take that wild walk.” ~Mark Hatmaker,
