Rewild Yourself: 23 Spellbinding Ways to Make Nature More Visible
by Simon Barnes
Illustrated by Cindy Lee Wright
We're not just losing the wild world. We're forgetting it. We're no longer noticing it. We've lost the habit of looking and seeing and listening and hearing. But we can make hidden things visible, and this book features 23 spellbinding ways to bring the magic of nature much closer to home.
Mammals you never knew existed will enter your world. Birds hidden in treetops will shed their cloak of anonymity. With a single movement of your hand you can make reptiles appear before you. Butterflies you never saw before will bring joy to every sunny day. Creatures of the darkness will enter your consciousness. And as you take on new techniques and a little new equipment, you will discover new creatures and, with them, new areas of yourself that had gone dormant. Once put to use, they wake up and start working again. You become wilder in your mind and in your heart. Once you know the tricks, the wild world begins to appear before you.
Rewild Yourself is for anyone who wants to get closer to the nature all around them and bring it back into focus. Each of these 23 ways of making hidden wildlife appear before your eyes is capable of changing your life.
