Journalist George Monbiot is author of the book Feral: Rewilding the Land, the Sea, and Human Life. The book follows Monbiot's efforts to re-engage with nature. He shows how, by restoring and rewilding our damaged ecosystems on land and at sea, we can bring wonder back into our lives, and lays out a new, positive environmental vision, in which nature is allowed to find its own way.
