George Monbiot has dedicated his life and career to tirelessly defending reason and the environment in a world assaulted by bad science, bad leadership, and bad habits. Feral is the lyrical and gripping story of Monbiot’s efforts to re-engage with nature and discover a new way of living. He shows how by restoring and rewilding our damaged ecosystems on land and at sea, we can bring wonder back into our lives and alleviate what he calls our “ecological boredom.”

Feral lays out a new, positive environmentalism in which nature is allowed to find its own way. Monbiot shows that as vast as our country is, it’s not nearly as “wild” as we allow ourselves to believe. From the Grand Banks to the tar sands to the Arctic, the natural world is in retreat. But Monbiot makes a passionate case that shows how rewilding could repair the living planet, creating ecosystems that reverse the damage our shortsightedness has caused.

Feral is a work of hope and of revelation, a wild and bewitching adventure that argues for a mass restoration of the natural world—and a powerful call for us to reclaim our own place in it.

Editorial Reviews

“The world knows George Monbiot mostly from his powerful and perceptive journalism. But this is a whole different order of writing and thinking, a primal account of an unstifled world.” - Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature and Eaarth“George Monbiot’s new book, Feral, is a book of Revelations for our times. It warns us in no uncertain terms that if we don’t change our ways in the hell of a hurry, we’ll have done two other things: 1) Committed the ultimate crime of biocide; and 2) Hung ourselves in the process thereof. Read Feral and act… or else." - Farley Mowat“George Monbiot is always original—both in the intelligence of his opinions and the depth and rigour of his research. In this unusual book he presents a persuasive argument for a new future for the planet, one in which we consciously progress from just conserving nature to actively rebuilding it.” - Brian Eno“Drawing on a life of rich observation and experience, George Monbiot regales us with stories of life’s astonishing capacity for renewal and offers an uplifting and inspiring goal beyond the cessation of our destructive rampage, the restoration of the wild in nature and our own lives.” - David Suzuki"Feral has really opened my mind to the history and possibilities of our landscape. It reflects a very real need in us all right now to be released from our claustrophobic monoculture and sense of powerlessness.  To break the straight lines into endless branches.  To free our land from its absent administrators. To rewild both the landscape and ourselves. It is the most positive and daring environmental book I have read.  In order to change our world you have to be able to see a better one. I think George has done that." - Thom Yorke of Radiohead
