Description


The author of this book sets out on a journey to uncover the essence of wilderness. Instead of travelling to remote, untamed parts of the world, Mitchell ends up exploring the green realms of his childhood and the gardens of Italy. He is pulled inward and toward home, back to what Thoreau called contact - an abiding, enduring and daily connection with the world. He comes to realize that the wildest place may be right in his own backyard.
