I will be the first to admit that what originally drew me to this book was the aesthetic cover. Little did I know that this book was exactly what I was searching for. In a world where there is so much despair, polarization and injustice, I feel lost. I feel called to make a difference, but where do I start? How do I help reduce plastic and food waste, resist political polarization, withstand products that result from child labor, fight for racial and social justice and expose the continuous corruption in our world?
Australian journalist and author, Sarah Wilson, works to define the itch for change that lies deep within us all in her book, “This One Wild and Precious Life: The Path Back to Connection in a Fractured World.” Wilson takes readers through her journey of reconciliation with the world we inhabit.
Through her experiences and connections with both nature and humanity, she brings to life the importance of growth and joy. Wilson finds that this type of joy and growth comes through being physically, socially, and mentally active. She encourages readers to expand their limits, spend more time in nature and dig into the depths of spirituality and the arts.
If you are feeling overwhelmed by the never-ending weight of our fractured world, I encourage you to take the time to embrace the knowledge and support Wilson has to offer.
This book was just what I needed in order to find clarity and direction in my life, and I hope it can be the same for you. Our world may be broken, but we have the power to embrace the wild and precious nature of our lives.
