The Last Wilderness

I think that this is one of four books written by Neil Ansell. I’d previously read Deep Country, a book about his five years spent alone in a cottage in Wales.

I was a little slow getting into this one… but did then get into it!

This book is about a man, alone in the wilderness. That’s staple reading material for me and more often than not… inspires me. What I really liked about this book and as was the case in Deep Country, is Ansell’s observations on wildlife, particularly birdlife but in The Last Wilderness, also otters and even whales!

His descriptions of isolated lochs and beaches create tantalising imagery and this book not only makes me want to get out hiking more (Already the case post Lockdown) but also get back into doing some camping. Whether that’s alone or with the family… maybe both!
