about

Rewild or Die is a collection of essays written by Urban Scout exploring the philosophy of the emerging rewilding renaissance, in which civilized humans are thought to be "domesticated" through thousands of years of sedentary, agrarian life. This way of life is believed to be the root of all environmental destruction and social injustice. Rewilding is the process of un-doing this domestication, and restoring healthy, biologically diverse communities. Using thoughtful, humorously cynical and at times angry prose, Urban Scout explores how the ideology of civilization clashes with the wild and wild peoples, and how thinking, feeling and most importantly living wild is the only way to reach true sustainability.

Editorial Reviews

"When I feel like surfing a bit nearer the edge, I check out Scout's latest. It's irreverent, angry, informative, and sometimes he's not even nice. Urban Scout is out there exploring and inventing rewilding and contemporary tribal skills with style, and I admire that he doesn't claim to know it all. Scout always takes me down an unanticipated path. We civilized folk have forgotten what he's trying to remember for us." - Toby Hemenway, author of Gaia's Garden: A Guide to Home-Scale Permaculture "It's the Urban in Urban Scout that's key, I'd say. Reminding us that we can make a start from wherever we are, on the joyful trek away from civilization. This site is rich and wide-ranging. Full of stimulating takes, methods, communications - not forgetting some humor. Bravo!"- John Zerzan, Editor Green Anarchy Magazine, Author of Future Primitive "Urban Scout has a wisdom and intelligence far beyond his years. He is helping us move away from this culture of death and toward a sane culture that will not kill the planet."- Derrick Jensen, author of A Language Older Than Words
