Read The Wild in You: Voices from the Forest and the Sea Online Free - "Each poem and photograph in this book honors the patch of Earth we have carved our home in; its squelch of mud, whale song, the berry balanced on a white bear's tongue. Together, Crozier and McAllister crystallize an ecosystem as powerful as the grizzly bear and as fragile as a crane fly’s wing." —Eliza Robertson, author of Wallflowers
A gorgeous and stirring collection of photos and poems from photographer Ian McAllister and Governor General’s Award-winning poet Lorna Crozier that reveals how the startling wildness of the natural world is mirrored in the human heart.
A testament to the miraculous beings that share our planet and the places where they live, The Wild in You is a creative collaboration between one of our time’s best nature photographers and one of North America’s most talented and critically acclaimed poets. Inspired by the majestic and savage beauty of McAllister’s photographs, Crozier translates the wild emotion of land and sea into the language of the human heart. Featuring over thirty beautiful full-size photographs of wolves, bears, sea lions, jellyfish, and other wild creatures paired with thirty original poems, The Wild in You challenges the reader to a deeper understanding of the connection between humans, animals, and our earth.

I’m very glad I read this book. I loved this book of poetry. It is also an awesome book of photographs. Each photograph has an accompanying poem. The poets use of language, metaphor and image allow the photograph and the words to dance with each other across the page.

Breathtaking and intriguing photos, even though I have read/viewed Ian McAllister's books from BC's temperate rain forest and west coast. The book is a result of poet Lorna Crozier's trip with McAllister, and then crafting poems triggered by that adventure and the photos he sent her. Lovely book,...
