Feral: Searching for Enchantment on the Frontiers of Rewilding

George Monibiot

Allen Lane

In this lyrical book, George Monbiot explores a different way of contemplating and engaging with the plight of the planet. In a world where much environmental rhetoric has become didactic and polarising, Monbiot calls us to 'rewilding', where "ecological processes resume and humans draw closer to the natural world". This new, positive environmentalism, he says, can show how damaged ecosystems on land and at sea can be restored, and how this restoration can revitalise and enrich our lives. With a powerful and riveting narrative, he blends tales of science, deepening our understanding of how natural systems work. Feral is a brave, hopeful and revelatory journey.
