2016 IndieFab Honorable Mention in Ecology & Environment.

This practical and poetic survival manual is the first English translation of the French masterpiece of living wild in the world and creating a permaculture. Back to the Wild is your source for everything from cartography to hunting and dressing wild game to cooking without a kitchen.

Its author, the late Alain Saury, was a respected author, poet, actor, activist, and artist who created the first vegetarian organization in France. His concerns about human survival in dangerous times inspired him to create this remarkable guidebook.

Beautifully designed and organized, the material in this book illustrates the importance in having an intimate relationship with nature, and it leads the reader back to wild, whether the journey is taken by choice or by necessity.

Review quote

Saury has made his manual more of a poetic journey of how to reconnect with the natural world. His personal beliefs are more than apparent throughout the text with plenty of biblical references and reflective poems, and even some opinionated lines that support his lifestyle choice as a vegetarian. - Vince Shuley, The Whistler Question
