Guest: Thomas M. Wilson

Thomas M. Wilson   Stepping Off                 

Book Review - Stepping Off: Rewilding and Belonging in the South-West (Fremantle Press)

Near the end of this fine book, Wilson states that ‘sedentary and urbanised peoples are more likely to suffer from a deficit of ecological intelligence’. Stepping Off is an informed and articulate plea that, as individuals and as a society, we redress this deficit and engage more meaningfully with our natural environment. Passion shines through in Wilson’s contemplation of metropolitan development and settlement of the south-west, and he advocates ‘personal rewilding’ as we look to ‘ancient realities’ to inform our choices.
