Unlearn, Rewild Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Picture a world where humans exist, like all other living things, in balance. Where there is no separation between "human" and "wild." Unlearn, Rewild boldly envisions such a world, probing deeply into the cultural constraints on our ability to lead truly sustainable lives and offering real, tangible tools to move toward another way of living, seeing, and thinking.

Part philosophical treatise, part hard-core survival guide, this unique and thoroughly unconventional manual blends philosophy with a detailed introduction to a rich assortment of endangered traditional living skills, including:

  • Harvesting and preparing unconventional proteins

  • Feral food preservation

  • Dealing responsibly with waste

  • Natural methods of birth control

  • Tanning and processing animal skins

Lyrical, humorous, surprising, enlightening, and thought-provoking by turns, Unlearn, Rewild is essential reading for those who wish to heal themselves and the earth, live gracefully into the future primitive and experience their wildest dreams.

Miles Olson has spent the past decade deeply immersed in learning and practicing earth skills. While foraging, hunting, gardening, and gathering for his livelihood, his experiences have given him a unique perspective on rewilding, radical self-reliance, and the impact of civilization on the natural world.

Synopsis:

Wild by nature - radical sustainability skills and ideas for a post-industrial future

About the Author

Miles experiences have put him at the forefront of the rewilding movement, radical self-reliance, and the impact of civilization on the natural world.
