Description

And while it seems an odd mishmash of topics occasionally – going from beavers to reincarnation – it works. In this very moving memoir, the leading rewilder and green investor bares his soul to let us into the darkest moments of his most private grief .

He explores different religious beliefs about death and the afterlife, even engaging with a psychic medium. Reading this book has made me appreciate the beauty of wildlife again and enjoying the life around us. All those who have been bereaved will recognise his descriptions of the dread that accompanies anniversaries – the first Christmas, the first birthday, the day that marks a year since the tragedy.Solnit skilfully argues not only that people will instinctually help others when they themselves are in distress, but that it is often only in this act of compassion and solidarity that one can heal themselves. You weave together the journeys of grief, and self-discovery, and re-wilding in such a beautiful and inspiring way. Now Caine delves into the real stories behind the gangs we think we know so well, revealing the hidden realities behind the myths.

At page 118, Goldsmith begins a multi-page diatribe on the hateful attitude of Brits towards wild space. There she is given the chance to undo her regrets and try out each of the other lives she might have lived. The events of Goldsmith’s book take place over the first year of Covid-19 lockdowns; an uncanny but fitting backdrop.

It is sad, of course, but it is also touching, funny, enlightening and, at moments, simply wondrous. Covid-19 is likely to be remembered as one of the most significant global crises since the second World War.
