"An ingenious and invigorating insight into the essential wildness within us all." Chris Packham

As our busy, technology-driven lives become more sedentary we have become less connected to our natural surroundings. In these challenging times, it is by rediscovering our links to the world around us that we can rekindle the natural, human connection we have to the wild.

Nick Baker introduces rewilding as a concept that needs to be established at a personal level. Taking the reader back to their natural sensitivities, we rediscover the instinctive potential of our senses. From learning to observe the creatures and beasts within hands' reach and seeing and hearing the birds and trees of our forests, Baker's expert advice offers the practical tools to experience the wilderness on your own doorstep, as well as in the wider, wilder world.

ReWild mixes memoir with practical advice, to delight, inform and inspire us all to discover the art of returning to nature.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"An ingenious and invigorating insight into the essential wildness within us all." -- Chris Packham
'this is a beguiling and convincing book. And before we next go shopping for a fancy gadget, we could all do worse than to remember its empowering conclusion: "You're a proud owner of the most important tool kit you could ever possibly own, and it's the one you were born with."' -- Brian Viner * Daily Mail *
'Simultaneously scientific and enthusiastic, passionate but articulate, exasperated but warm, and fantastically, wondrously nerdish. Quite simply one of the best things I've read on what it means and how it feels to be physically in touch with nature.' * BBC Wildlife Magazine *
"Ditch the gadgets and let this memoir and quietly inspirational practical guide connect you with the wilderness."
* National Geographic Traveller *
"For anyone new to rewilding, this is a well-crafted introduction, with simple day-to-day advice anyone can follow." * Geographical magazine *
"Perfect for anyone looking to escape the stresses of modern life, the book is full of advice on getting back in touch with the wild." * Welsh Border Life *
"Our digital world seems to offer any number of diversions from reality, but in his powerful new book Rewild naturalist and broadcaster Nick Baker suggests ways in which we can reconnect to the natural world..." * Choice magazine *
"If you've ever felt frustrated by how little time your grandchildren spend playing outside, you'll agree with Nick Baker. The wildlife presenter is on a mission to encourage all of us to get out and reconnect with nature. ReWild helps you appreciate the wildlife that's right on your doorstep." * Yours magazine *
"Nick Baker makes a passionate, coherent and convincing case....it's inspiring as well as educational, and if all of us took on board even 10% of what he urges us to do, the results could be immense. An accessible and entertaining read as well as a blueprint for action." * Birdwatching magazine *
"a recommended read for sure." * Shiny New Books *
"Nick Baker's ReWild is my book of 2017!" * Fat Birder *
"a thoroughly instructive and entertaining read"
* Smallwoods magazine *

“Excellent!”

I love nature. I love books about nature. But I also live in a city, in a smallish island country, and so am very much aware of the urbanisation of our green spaces, the loss of our back gardens and the squeeze that... More
