Inhaltsangabe: George Monbiot has dedicated his life and career to tirelessly defending reason and the environment in a world assaulted by bad science, bad leadership, and bad habits. Feral is the lyrical and gripping story of Monbiot?s efforts to re-engage with nature and discover a new way of living. He shows how by restoring and rewilding our damaged ecosystems on land and at sea, we can bring wonder back into our lives and alleviate what he calls our ?ecological boredom.?
Feral lays out a new, positive environmentalism in which nature is allowed to find its own way. Monbiot shows that as vast as our country is, it?s not nearly as ?wild? as we allow ourselves to believe. From the Grand Banks to the tar sands to the Arctic, the natural world is in retreat. But Monbiot makes a passionate case that shows how rewilding could repair the living planet, creating ecosystems that reverse the damage our shortsightedness has caused.
Feral is a work of hope and of revelation, a wild and bewitching adventure that argues for a mass restoration of the natural world?and a powerful call for us to reclaim our own place in it.
