Product description

Review

‘A beautiful and thought-provoking story that will inspire you to live differently. Mark asks the most fundamental questions then sets out to live the answers.’

(Lily Cole)

‘Don’t buy my books: buy this instead, while there’s still time for you to change. This one matters. Boyle is the real thing: vital, angry, and kind. And real things are terribly rare. You might think his ideas are dangerous, but in fact they represent the only possible safety.’

(Charles Foster, author of Being a Beast)

‘A revealing, humorous and deeply endearing witness statement on behalf of lovely, dirty reality.’

(Jay Griffiths, author of Wild: An Elemental Journey)

‘Illustrates beautifully that giving up many of the things in life that we treat as indispensable may actually be less of a sacrifice than a liberation.’

(Neil Ansell, author of Deep Country)

The Way Home paints a picture not only of how broken our culture has become, but of how to begin building a new one. It demands to be read – and then lived by.’

(Paul Kingsnorth, author of The Wake and Confessions of a Recovering Environmentalist)

‘In a world more connected than ever before we have never been so disconnected. By shaking off technologies of modern man and stepping back in time, Boyle shows the hardships and beauty of living with the seasons. A thought-provoking read which encourages the reader to appreciate many of the things we take for granted and question the way we live in the modern world.’

(Megan Hine, author of Mind of a Survivor)
