Wildest Places on Earth by John Hanson Mitchell

Book Description

A captivating journey to uncover the essence of wilderness, by one of this country's most original nature writers. In The Wildest Place on Earth Mitchell sets out on a journey to uncover the essence of wilderness. Instead of traveling to remote, untamed parts of the world, Mitchell ends up exploring the green realms of his childhood and the gardens of Italy. He is pulled inward and toward home, back to what Thoreau called "contact"--an abiding, enduring, and daily connection with the world. He comes to realize that the wildest place may be right in his own backyard.A Merloyd Lawrence Book
