Product description


“The Wilderness Cure, her diary of the year, is many things: an unpreachy manifesto, a recipe book, a celebration of friendship, a passionate love song to the wild, a textbook of empathy, a cabinet of ecological curiosities, a masterclass in how to tread softly, a survival guide, a journal of quiet epiphanies, a primer on the art of relationship, a meditation on the significance of mycelial networks, a map of the collective unconscious, an impeccably researched account of many of the medical perils of modernity, an inquiry into the healing power of the natural world and an evolving reflection on what it means to be a human…


The Wilderness Cure is a triumph: brave, candid, kind, heartbroken by our stupidity and rapacity, suffused with the pain of bereavement at our loss of relationship with the non-human world, but suffused too with hope. For there is a way back. We’d better find it soon.”TLS

'With the seductively readable style that comes only from the light poetism of wisdom and knowledge speaking from the heart, Monica Wilde relates the story of a year eating nothing but wild food. The result is a masterly work of information and erudition, one from which I am still buzzing with the pleasure of its reading.' -- John Wright, author of the Forager’s Calendar

'Mo Wilde’s story of foraging for food and medicine is an inspiration to us all. She brings home the need so many of us have for the wild redeemer as a part of our diet and our lives.' -- Stephen Harrod Buhner, author of the bestselling Herbal Antibiotics and Earth Grief: The Journey Into and Through Ecological Loss

'Fascinating, inspiring, brave and beautifully written - all is not lost.' -- Gill Meller, author of Outside: Recipes for a Wilder Way of Eating

'Mo Wilde has retraced [our ancestors] steps. … A delightfully humble, funny and wise guide, [Mo] leaves tentative footprints for us to follow. Perhaps if we do that, we can all make it home in time.' -- Miles Irving, author of the Forager Handbook, Ebury press, and host of the World Wild podcast

'Mo Wilde’s year is an inspiration. What an incredible woman and an even more impressive book.' -- Cat Thomson, The Scotsman food and drink writer

'This book is utterly fascinating, and written in a wildly refreshing manner. Though embarking on such a wholesome journey, Mo doesn’t sugar-coat the difficulties however, she also celebrates the many positive sides, [offering] advice on how we could better live, without ever preaching.' -- Michael Perry, ‘The Plant Geek’, Garden Media Guild award winner and author of Hortus Curious

'The person who returns [from this journey] is not the same. Something else has returned with her, something that now lives in the world and is food for the soul’s journey.' -- Julie McIntyre, author of The Confluence of Gaia, Plant Medicine and the Human Soul
