#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER At twenty-two, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother’s death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life. With no experience or training, driven only by blind will, she would hike more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State—and she would do it alone. Told with suspense and style, sparkling with warmth and humor, Wild powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her. NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE One of the Best Books of the Year: NPR, The Boston Globe, Entertainment Weekly, Vogue, St. Louis Dispatch

As anyone who has patted a dog, smelled a rose, taken a walk, or even had a drink in the garden well knows, humans have a soul-deep need for non-human forms of life. This book is about pushing our birthright of wildness just that little bit further. In How to be Wild, Simon Barnes takes us on a breath-taking journey through a year, from one raucous spring to the next, with elephants and mosquitoes, dolphins and flying squirrels, giraffes and butterflies as his companions. And again and again, he helps us realise an essential truth: that by enjoying the wild world, and by seeking to understand the wild world, our own lives become infinitely richer and more satisfying.

Is WILD... a children's book? Well, yes, of course, but no...not exactly. Much of the humor will be way beyond the kids. Is it a humor book for adults? Well...maybe in an Aliceinwonderland or Doctorseussian kind of way. Is it for adolescents? Most certainly! They'll probably remember their earlier A thru Z books and see it as partly a parody of and partly a rejoicing in the child's fresh new view of the inhabitants of our "wild" world. The truth is that WILD... is all these things and more. It is the joy and surprise of childhood blended with the wit, wisdom and-yes-the touch of cynicism of the person who has long trod the planet and knows its ways. It is both satire and innocence, beauty and ugliness, horror and delight. It is Grimm's Fairy Tales and the Wild Life Encyclopedia. It is Jack in the Beanstalk and Brave New World. It is Australia, Tokyo, New York and London. In the WILD... alphabet, you will find Antelope through Zygote, and then, just when you think you are finished, you'll find more WILD with Puffins and Rhinos, Camels and Boas...and more. You will enjoy this book if you enjoy fish, animals and birds, but especially if you enjoy poking fun at the strange ways of the creatures on our planet, beginning, of course, always with yourself.

Jay Griffiths describes an extraordinary odyssey, courageous and sometimes dangerous, to wildernesses of earth and ice, water and fire. A poetic consideration of the tender connection between human society and wild lands, Wild is by turns funny, touching and harrowing. It is also a journey into that greatest of uncharted lands - wild mind - as Griffiths explores the words and meanings which shape our ideas and our experience of our own wildness. Part travelogue, part manifesto, this is a one-of-a-kind book from a one-of-a-kind author.

Every man was once a boy. And every little has dreams, big dreams, dreams of being the hero, of beating the bad guys, of doing daring feats and rescuing the damsel in distress. Every little girl has dreams, too: of being rescued by her prince and swept up into a great adventure, knowing that she is the beauty. But what happens to those dreams when we grow up? Walk into most churches, have a look around, and ask yourself: What is a Christian man? Without listening to what is said, look at what you find there. Most Christian men are . . . bored. John Eldredge revises and updates his best-selling, renowned Christian classic, Wild at Heart, and in it invites men to recover their masculine heart, defined in the image of a passionate God. And he invites women to discover the secret of a man’s soul and to delight in the strength and wildness men were created to offer. John Eldredge is the director of Ransomed Heart

Products from the wild, also known as non-timber forest products (NTFPs), are used as medicines, foods, spices, and a multitude of other purposes. They contribute substantially to rural livelihoods, generate revenue for companies and governments, and have a range of impacts on biodiversity conservation. However, there is little information available for those seeking to develop effective policy frameworks and regulation.a This book addresses that shortage with information and recommendations on the drafting, content and implementation of NTFP policies, and the broader issues of governance associated with these products. It reviews the diverse elements that combine to create laws and policies that promote sustainable and equitable management, trade and use of species. Drawing on a wealth of unique case studies from around the world, this volume examines experiences with NTFP regulation, including its sometimes unintended consequences. It looks at economic factors, the interface between traditional and western knowledge and legal systems, and relationships between NTFP regulation, land tenure and resource rights, as well as power and equity imbalances. The volume includes a review of available literature and resources, plus an annotated bibliography linked to the People and Plants International website (www.peopleandplants.org).a Published with People and Plants International
