Summary
"The wilderness--forest, desert, glacier, jungle--has been the scene of the past century's most exciting stories and inspired some of its best writers, from Edward Abbey and Jack London to Norman Maclean and Jon Krakauer. Wild contains 14 selections of their finest work, for people who love the wilderness and readers who love great writing. Many of these stories are first-hand accounts of adventures lived by the writers themselves."--Blurb
