The Last Wilderness: A Journey Into Silence
Neil Ansell first visited the Rough Bounds in the Northwest Highlands of Scotland when he was twenty. It was the wildest landscape he'd ever seen.
In THE LAST WILDERNESS he journeys to the area again, exploring the joys of solitary travel. He writes about the changes in the landscape and how his gradual loss of hearing affects his relationship with nature - the calls of the birds he know so well becoming silent to him.
It is a hauntingly beautiful memoir and an intriguing exploration of memory, desire and the weathering of time.
