How many of us sometimes feel that we are scratching at the walls of this life, seeking to find our way into a wider space beyond? That our mild, polite existence sometimes seems to crush the breath out of us? Feral is the lyrical and gripping story of George Monbiot's efforts to re-engage with nature and discover a new way of living. He shows how, by restoring and rewilding our damaged ecosystems on land and at sea, we can bring wonder back into our lives. Making use of some remarkable scientific discoveries, Feral lays out a new, positive environmentalism, in which nature is allowed to find its own way. 'Passionate, brilliant, timely . . . we need such big thinking . . . let the wild rumpus start.' Philip Hoare, Sunday Telegraph 'Feral reflects a very real need in us all right now to be released from our claustrophobic monoculture and sense of powerlessness . . . To rewild both the landscape and ourselves. It is the most positive and daring environmental book I have read.' Thom Yorke 'His passion is for a wilder world, a world less circumscribed by fear and greed. And he's right . . . he refreshes your view.' Simon Barnes, The Times 'To read this seminal, subversive, sometimes intoxicating book could mean never to look at our landscape in quite the same way again.' Michael Viney, Irish Times 'It imagines the lives we no longer lead, but might, the species that no longer exist, but could.' Robert Macfarlane 'Made me dream of seeing lynx and beavers roaming the countryside.' Ali Shaw, Observer, Books of the Year
