The latest adventure from bestselling author Ben Fogle explores what we can learn from nature about living well and living wild.
Writing during the unprecedented period of the coronavirus pandemic, Ben revisits some of his most meaningful encounters with nature, from idyllic childhood summers on Canadian lakes and his time spent castaway on a remote Hebridean island to close calls swimming with crocodiles in Botswana. Drawing on a wealth of personal anecdotes, Ben reflects on the significance of nature to all our lives and shows us how, even in lockdown, we can all live a little more wild. He asks:
- What can rowing across the Atlantic teach us about boredom and about patience?
- Can coming down from Everest take more resilience than climbing it in the first place?
- How can the isolation of the South Pole highlight what’s most important? And how can we tap into the same reflective state in our daily lives?
A primer on positivity, this is a story about overcoming obstacles, surpassing your own expectations and inspiring your own journey.
