Illustrated with beautiful color photographs, The Wild leads the reader to the planet's least cultivated places, from jungles to tundras. Take a step into the wild

We live in an increasingly urbanized world, but there are still many magnificent stretches of wilderness unaltered by humankind. From the most remote mountains and valleys in Alaska to the southern tip of Chile and Argentina, from Europe's primeval forest on the Polish-Belarusian border to Norway's fjords, and from the Namib Desert to Kamchatka in far-eastern Russia to canyons in Kurdistan and rainforests in Cambodia, The Wild celebrates the beauty of uncultivated landscapes all around the globe. Arranged by continent, the book roams across landscapes and climates, from Antarctica's dry valleys to African burning deserts, from European marshlands to Arabian rugged peaks and on to Tanzania's craters, Indonesia's volcanoes, and New Zealand's bubbling mud pools. Each entry is supported with fascinating captions explaining the geology, geography, flora, and fauna. In doing so, the book reveals some of the world's most naturally bizarre places.
