Publisher's Summary

A captivating and lyrical journey into our ancestral past, through what and how we eat.

Mo Wilde made a quiet but radical pledge: to live only off free, foraged food for an entire year. In a world disconnected from its roots, eating wild food is both culinary and healing, social and political. Ultimately, it is an act of love and community. Using her expert knowledge of botany and mycology, Mo follows the seasons to find nutritious food from hundreds of species of plants, fungi and seaweeds, and in the process learns not just how to survive, but how to thrive. Nourishing her body and mind deepens her connection with the earth—a connection that we have become estranged from but which we all, deep down, hunger for.

This hunger is about much more than food. It is about accepting and understanding our place in a natural network that is both staggeringly complex and beautifully simple. The Wilderness Cure is a diary of a wild experiment; a timely and inspiring memoir which explores a deeper relationship between humans and nature, and reminds us of the important lost lessons from our past.

What a treat.

What a pleasure it has been to listen to this book. Full of knowledge, emotions and thought provoking. Got me thinking about how to be a more giving being on this planet and give back for the gifts that Gaia provides. And Mo's voice made a wonderful companion for few days, wonderful storytelling. Thank you.

Beautiful, insightful book by Mo Wild.

Beautifully narrated account from Mo Wild which, in my mind should be compulsory listening/reading for secondary school pupils and beyond. So much wisdom imparted but without a hint of preaching. Inspirational and throughly enjoyable. Loved it from start to finish.

Beyond inspirational!

Totally absorbing.
I spend a lot of time foraging but there’s no way I could survive a year on my finds with my current mindset and knowledge bank.
Mo’s ingenuity at mealtimes was particularly inspiring and at times my mouth was watering! In fact I’m also going to buy a physical copy of the book so I can through and really let her various uses of common ‘weeds’ sink in.
This book is a must if you’re concerned about upcoming food shortages, price increases and the ability to afford healthful and fresh produce.
Thank you Mo for sharing your year long adventure with us, I loved it ☺️
