Veteran globetrotter Phoebe Smith sets out to prove that outdoor adventures are available in the UK which rival anything found elsewhere in the world. In this sometimes scary, frequently funny and intriguing journey around the country, Phoebe attempts to discover and conquer its wildest places.

From spending the night in the decaying wreckage of a World War Two bomber at Bleaklow to pitching next to the adrenaline-inducing sheer drops of Lizard Point, Phoebe's extreme sleeps defy her perceptions of the great outdoors and teach her about herself along the way.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Smith combines self-deprecating humor and an overactive imagination to enliven her story... In addition, Smith takes time to educate readers on the culture and history of wild sleeping and the philosophy of people who would rather bypass formal campsites to discover Mother Nature's wondrous bedroom decor.'
