Publisher Description

The latest adventure from bestselling author Ben Fogle explores what we can learn from nature about living well and living wild.

What can rowing across the Atlantic teach us about boredom and about patience?

Can coming down from Everest take more resilience than climbing up in the first place?

How can the isolation of the South Pole highlight what’s most important? And how can we tap into the same reflective state in our daily lives?

Writing during the unprecedented period of the coronavirus pandemic and drawing on a wealth of personal stories, Ben reflects on the significance of nature to all our lives and shows us how we can benefit from living a little more wild.

Drawing on his greatest adventures, he shares what his time spent in the wilderness has taught him about life. Ranging across seas, icecaps, jungles and deserts, Ben’s stories are filled with wonder and struggle, with animals, adventure, wilderness, friendships, unexpected acts of kindness and heroism, and are bursting with inspiration directly from nature. Ben’s epic stories reveal a new side to his adventures and show how everyone can find meaning in the wilderness, even if it’s just outside their front door.

Full of exciting adventures and practical guidance, this primer on positivity is a story about overcoming obstacles, surpassing your expectations and inspiring your journey of adventure.

Inspire inspires!

As an adventurer and lover of our wilderness, I love the storytelling around each expedition and the physical and mental learning processes Ben has elaborated on. I’m very grateful to him for also validating my own, similar thoughts on the spirit of nature and how to respect and be a better version of myself.

Great read, real observations and had me challenging the thought process - recommend it but remember to take from it the bits you need rather than question everything - stay half full and lose the negativity
