Book Review – Rewild Yourself – Simon Barnes

We’re not just losing the wild world. We’re forgetting it. We’re no longer noticing it. We’ve lost the habit of looking and seeing and listening and hearing. But we can make hidden things noticeable, and Rewild Yourself features 23 spellbinding ways to bring the wonder of nature much closer to home.

Mammals you never knew existed will enter your world. Birds hidden in treetops will shed their cloak of secrecy. With a single flow of your hand you can make reptiles appear before you. Butterflies you never saw before will bring delight to every sunny day. Creatures of the dark will enter your mind. And as you take on new skills and a little new equipment, you will discover new creatures and, with them, new parts of yourself that had been locked away. Once put to use, they wake up and start whirring again. You become wilder in your conscience and in your heart. Once you know the techniques, the wild world begins to show before you.

For anyone who wants to get closer to the world all around them and bring it back into foreground, this is the perfect read.

“The perfect gift for both confirmed nature lovers, and those who want to discover the wild side…” – Lancashire Post
