Walks in the Wild: A Guide Through the Forest

By Peter Wohlleben , translated by Ruth Ahmedzai Kemp
Published in the UK and Australia by Rider Books, July 2019

Can you tell the difference between wolf and dog prints? Which trees are best to shelter under a storm? How do you tell a deciduous and coniferous tree apart? Bestselling author of The Hidden Life of trees, Peter Wohlleben, lets you in on the quintessentials of his forestry knowledge. He invites you on an atmospheric journey of discovery. Learn to find your way around the woods without a compass or GPS, which berries and mushrooms are good to eat, how to read animal tracks and what it’s like to spend a night alone in a forest. Walks in the Wild has everything you need to make a woodland walk – be it spring, summer, autumn or winter – into a very special experience.


‘Walks In The Wild, therefore, contains his considered and often impassioned thoughts and arguments on the policies and politics (past and present) of sustainable forest management. This endows the book with a thought-provoking gravitas, but one which avoids preachiness or overwhelming the reader who comes to the book simply to enhance their knowledge of the forest.’ ~ Lizzy’s Literary Life
