“Wander through the pages of A Wilder Life in awe and appreciation. . . . [The book] urges readers to garden with a purpose—to stew, brew, can and pot. . . . . Nature isn’t just a screen saver. It’s a soul saver.”

A beautiful coffee table book full of inspiration for natural living. The book is full of seasonal beauty. Divided into sections covering the seasons with "projects" appropriate to the time of year. For example in Spring we are going to learn to grow things from seeds, understand cheese, make elderberry champagne, and get started on beekeeping. In Fall we are going to make pumpkin butter, set up an at home herbalist pharmacy, and understand the secrets of fall's changing leaves.
It bounds with eternal optimism of cool things I could plant or the fabric I could dye using those beets, carrots and kale I planted. The problem is, the book is extremely light on details. This book has to be viewed as a book of inspiration, that will take you somewhere else to find out how to actually accomplish the ideas. A couple of paragraphs of text isn't' going to ensure the desired results.
I mean I am not going to learn to identify 14 species of butterflies with only a handful of identification tips and no photos of each species. Nor am I going to go foraging in the woods for mushrooms unless I have good realistic clear photos and descriptions of what I am looking for, along with photos and descriptions of the mushrooms I need to avoid.
I don't think it is a terrible book, I think it is a quite lovely book, to look at and to inspire, but not to actually use as a guide.
