Jay Griffiths - Wild: An elemental journey

Jay Griffiths - Wild: An elemental journeyIn this book, out in May but available for pre-order through the Wilderness Bookstore, Jay Griffiths describes an extraordinary odyssey, courageous and sometimes dangerous, to wildernesses of earth and ice, water and fire.

It is a poetic consideration of the tender connection between human society and wild lands, "Wild" is by turns funny, touching and harrowing. It is also a journey into that greatest of uncharted lands - wild mind - as Griffiths explores the words and meanings which shape our ideas and our experience of our own wildness. Part travelogue, part manifesto, this is a one-of-a-kind book from a one-of-a-kind author.

We are working with the Gaia Foundation on setting up an event focusing on this book - Keep an eye on this space.
