As anyone who has patted a dog, smelled a rose, taken a walk, or even had a drink in the garden well knows, humans have a soul-deep need for non-human forms of life. This book is about pushing our birthright of wildness just that little bit further. In How to be Wild, Simon Barnes takes us on a breath-taking journey through a year, from one raucous spring to the next, with elephants and mosquitoes, dolphins and flying squirrels, giraffes and butterflies as his companions. And again and again, he helps us realise an essential truth: that by enjoying the wild world, and by seeking to understand the wild world, our own lives become infinitely richer and more satisfying.
