When the Wild Comes Leaping Up

Personal Encounters with Nature

When the Wild Comes Leaping Up
Add to cart
US$ 16.95
A powerful collection of personal experiences with nature.

In this eloquent collection, award-winning writers from the United States, Canada, the UK and Australia describe a personal encounter with the natural world that moved them, enhanced their understanding of nature, changed them, or was in some other way of prime importance to them. These essays describe childhood memories, everyday walks transformed into life-changing events, being in the grip of a great force, startling encounters with wild animals, and even one fantasy, and they are funny, sad, reflective, exciting, optimistic, pessimistic, nostalgic, and outlandish. Each one presents a singular experience of enlightenment, awe, passion, outrage, sadness, or exhilaration. All are beautifully written and powerfully felt.
