Product description

Master Tracker Paul Rezendes has followed bobcat through impenetrable swamps, and howled with coyotes in a moonlit field. Here, he weaves vivid accounts of lessons learned in the wild with the story of his extraordinary life progression from gang member to Zen woodsman. Leaving his past behind, he sought a truer path-and learned about compassion from a curious 750-pound bull moose, and discovered the inseparability of life and death through a wrenching encounter between a coyote and a deer. These stories transport readers from the slopes of Maine's Mount Katahdin to Cape Cod's sun-drenched blueberry tangles to the brink of a fox's forest lair. With this book, he shows us how to live in the natural world, moving soundlessly, watching where we put our feet, gauging the wind, and entering a new state of awareness. A dramatic, deeply spiritual book, The Wild Within is one of those rare books with the power to change the way we see ourselves-and make the natural world come alive.

Author information

Recognized as one of the country's leading animal tracking experts, Paul Rezendes has taught thousands of children and adults the language of the forest, deeply committed to helping people to not only observe nature, but to connect with it and themselves in a profound and often totally new way. He is the author/photographer of the highly acclaimed guide Tracking & the Art of Seeing: How to Read Animal Tracks and Sign, a stunning photography book coauthored with his wife, Paulette M. Roy, Wetlands: The Web of Life, Martha's Vineyard Seasons, and a series of Lighthouse Companion Guides for New England and Long Island Sound. Paul is also an internationally published nature photographer whose photos are featured in hundreds of calendars, magazines, books, brochures, and promotional materials each year. He retired from teaching tracking in 2004 to devote his energies full-time to his photography. He lives with his wife in a remote forest on the Millers River in Athol, Massachusetts.
