Thousands of years ago, everyone lived in the wilderness. Today, most people live comfortably indoors. This is perfectly fine, of course, but many have completely lost touch with nature. Meanwhile, millions of acres of pristine wilderness are waiting to be enjoyed. Wildering: Anyone's Guide to Enjoying the American Wilderness can help reconnect people with the natural world-even those who have never set foot in the woods. Author Mick Tune has the answers to all the questions you're afraid to ask, with information about equipment, packing, permitting, basic survival, and much more. You don't have to be in incredible shape or spend a fortune on equipment to enjoy the outdoors-all you need is a pair of legs and a spirit of adventure. Mick Tune wasn't a Boy Scout, nor is he a professional mountain man-but he loves the wilderness, and he's learned a lot over three decades of outdoor adventures. Tune is living proof that nature exists for everyone's enjoyment; you just need the courage to take that first step.

In our technology-driven, workaday world, connecting with nature has never before been more essential. A Wilder Life, a beautiful oversized lifestyle book by the team behind the popular Wilder Quarterly, gives readers indispensable ideas for interacting with the great outdoors. Learn to plant a night-blooming garden, navigate by reading the stars, build an outdoor shelter, make dry shampoo, identify insects, cultivate butterflies in a backyard, or tint your clothes with natural dyes. Like a modern-day Whole Earth Catalog, A Wilder Life gives us DIY projects and old-world skills that are being reclaimed by a new generation. Divided into sections pertaining to each season and covering self-reliance, growing and gardening, cooking, health and beauty, and wilderness, and with photos and illustrations evocative of the great outdoors, A Wilder Life shows that getting in touch with nature is possible no matter who you are and—more important—where you are.

"The Hudson River School is really the first coherent school of American art and it helped shape the mythos of the American landscape. The artists of the School, working from 1825 to 1875, infused the American landscape with the dreams and ambitions of a young nation poised for greatness. Beginning with the works of Thomas Cole, acknowledged founder and key figure in the establishment of the School, landscape art became the prevalent genre of nineteenth-century painting. Cole, whose dramatic and colorful landscapes are among the most impressive of the group, may be said to have been its leader during the its most active years. The work of over 20 artists is included here, with paintings by Henry Inman, Jasper Cropsey, Frederic E. Church, George Inness, Sanford Gifford, Martin Johnson Heade, Albert Bierstadt, William Stanley Haseltine, and Thomas Moran."

The author was raised in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California, when the Valley was a wide-open area of orange groves, homes and estates. The large estates were owned by the movie stars such as Roy Rogers and other stars in their heyday. After marriage, my husband and I desired to raise our family in a country atmosphere with a minuscule population. We sold our first home in the valley in order to move to the tiny town of Acton, in the mountainous countryside sixty miles north of Los Angeles. The time line of book is 1928 to 2011 with many odd happening in our lives and unusual memories and pleasant days in the country. We cleared the land, put down a well, and built our home ourselves and raised a family of four children. Upon completion of the house it was necessary to move the home if we wished to continue living in it. It was a new home and yes we wanted it, but this proved to be frightening experience and a near tragic disaster! This is only one of the many unusual happenings in our life in the country. Unwanted animals are freely given to people who live in the country from friends. In this manner, we acquired a burro that soon gave birth to a strong baby burro (on its first day of birth, kicked our young son and knocked him down), several dogs, a beautiful horse and another burro. Life in the country was always surprising and a pleasant place to raise a family, sometimes difficult but nice! We knew friends in a circle of twenty miles in every direction. Our two sons still live in Acton, our daughters have moved to the beach cities in California.
