Unlearn, Rewild

Earth Skills, Ideas and Inspiration for the Future Primitive

by Miles Olson



Picture a world where humans exist, like all other living things, in balance. Where there is no separation between 'human' and 'wild'. Unlearn, Rewild boldly envisions such a world, probing deeply into the cultural constraints on our ability to lead truly sustainable lives and offering real, tangible tools to move toward another way of living, seeing and thinking.

Part philosophical treatise, part hard-core survival guide, this unique and thoroughly unconventional manual blends philosophy with a detailed introduction to a rich assortment of endangered traditional living skills, including:

  • Harvesting and preparing unconventional proteins
  • Feral food preservation
  • Dealing responsibly with waste
  • Natural methods of birth control
  • Tanning and processing animal skins.

Lyrical, humorous, surprising, enlightening and thought-provoking by turns, Unlearn, Rewild is essential reading for those who wish to heal themselves and the earth, live gracefully into the future primitive and experience their wildest dreams.
