Rewild Yourself Summary


Rewild Yourself: 23 Spellbinding Ways to Make Nature More Visible by Simon Barnes

'Such a simple, clever book.' Rosemary Goring, The Herald

We're not just losing the wild world. We're forgetting it. We're no longer noticing it. We've lost the habit of looking and seeing and listening and hearing.


But we can make hidden things visible, and this book features 23 spellbinding ways to bring the magic of nature much closer to home.

Mammals you never knew existed will enter your world. Birds hidden in treetops will shed their cloak of anonymity. With a single movement of your hand you can make reptiles appear before you. Butterflies you never saw before will bring joy to every sunny day. Creatures of the darkness will enter your consciousness. And as you take on new techniques and a little new equipment, you will discover new creatures and, with them, new areas of yourself that had gone dormant. Once put to use, they wake up and start working again. You become wilder in your mind and in your heart. Once you know the tricks, the wild world begins to appear before you.

For anyone who wants to get closer to the nature all around them and bring it back into focus, this is the perfect read.

Rewild Yourself Reviews


'Such a good idea. How to wake up to and uncover and engage with everyday but remarkable animals using your senses, some technology and your "soul/spirit".' -- Chris Packham
'Rewild Yourself turns the [nature writing] genre upside down. Barnes tackles the issue of our disconnection with the wild from a much more pragmatic angle. It is not the land that should be rewilded, but us. This book has a spiritual, crusading quality. He writes as an uncle would to his nieces or nephews, encouraging them to enjoy his love of the outdoors... There is something here for anyone who is captivated by nature and wants to get closer... Essentially Rewild Yourself is about learning to be part of nature. This is such a simple, clever book.' -- Rosemary Goring * Herald *
'Barnes urges us to pay closer attention to the natural world, sharing 23 tips and techniques to help us all, wherever we live, to broaden our horizons and enjoy the wonders of nature.' * Daily Express *
'The perfect gift for both confirmed nature lovers, and those who want to discover the wild side...'
* Lancashire Post *
