Description

Wild brings together the best writing about men and women fighting for their lives in the wilderness, from Jon Krakauer’s article on which he based his bestseller Into the Wild, to Carl R. Raswan’s account of surviving raids, droughts, and sandstorms in the desert with the Bedouins, to Joe Kane’s description of terrifying adventures on the Amazon. Other accounts include: Philipe Descola telling of life with an isolated tribe of headhunters; Bill Bryson describing his life-threatening but hilarious adventures along the Appalachian Trail; and Eric Newby finding himself lost in some of the world’s most daunting terrain, the unmapped Hindu Kush.
