George Monbiot is a journalist, environmentalist, "Guardian" columnist, and the author of numerous books.
"As a passionate polemic, Feral could not be more rigorously
researched, more elegantly delivered, or more timely. We need such
big thinking for our own sakes and those of our children. Bring on
the wolves and whales, I say, and, in the words of Maurice Sendak,
let the wild rumpus start."--Philip Hoare "Sunday Telegraph, Book
of the Week "
"Feral has really opened my mind to the history and possibilities of our landscape. It reflects a very real need in us all right now to be released from our claustrophobic monoculture and sense of powerlessness. To break the straight lines into endless branches. To free our land from its absent administrators. To rewild both the landscape and ourselves. It is the most positive and daring environmental book I have read. In order to change our world you have to be able to see a better one. I think George has done that."--Thom Yorke
"Monbiot challenges the reader to think more deeply on the subject of rewilding. . . . Throughout the book, Monbiot's lyrical and provocative tales of his efforts to reengage with the wild stimulate the senses and arouse an innate urge to affiliate with nature. . . . Monbiot takes you on an emotional roller coaster, at times plunging you into troughs of despair as he discusses the bleak plight of much of our wildlife and, at others, raising you up on peaks of hope as he discusses how much of the degradation can be reversed. . . . Part personal journal, part restoration ecology primer, Feral popularizes the concept of rewilding and will likely prompt wildlife managers, landowners, policy-makers, and the general public to question their perception of the natural world and its role in our lives."--Science
