"I am drawn to the empty quarter, to open country, to the place on the map where there are dragons and giants, and the vast open spaces of mountains, canyons, rivers, prairies, and oceans. However, as the subtitle of this book declares, I am merely an ordinary adventurer in search of extraordinary places."

In this series of fascinating and beautifully written essays about his deep desire for meaningful connection with the natural world , his steadfast commitment to protecting the wilderness, and his life on this vast and precious planet, Legault invites us to explore the intricate relationships that develop between people and place when we immerse ourselves in wild nature. Whether comfortably ensconced in a favourite easy chair or bedded down by a raging river under a canopy of stars, readers will slip between sheer canyon walls, walk a wind-torn ridge high in the mountains, meet Blondie the grizzly bear, and perhaps discover their feral selves and the possibilities for a better future that this awakening might bring.
