The Wilderness Cure
About this deal
It does in fact merit a longer reading but it’s a page-turner and I devoured it avidly (though less so some of her desperate wintry meals). I value the led foraging I have been on and this book is a fabulous resource to support these experiences. It was a delight to reconnect with that old 'lover' nature and see how Mo navigated her year of foraging.

It lost its focus occasionally and drifted into repetition at times, but this is a very minor complaint.While Wilde does state her diet before starting mainly consisted of a vegetable stir-fry for breakfast, snack for lunch and cheese and crackers for dinners so not your typical diet of processed food today (this experiment would probably have had a lot more withdrawal problems and been harder for someone who didn’t eat like Wilde before), it nevertheless is a challenge.

The Wilderness Cure is written in diary format and Mo journals about what can be foraged in that month/season.
Here it becomes the beating heart of life just as it would have done for 99% of the humans that came before us.
