In 2010, Sarah Marquis embarked on a perilous journey: alone and on foot, she walked ten thousand miles across the Gobi Desert, from Siberia, through Thailand, to the Australian outback. Relying on hunting and her own wits, she traversed fever-haunted jungles and scorching deserts, braved harassment from drug dealers, the Mafia, and camp raids from thieves on horseback. Surviving dehydration, dengue fever delirium and crippling infection, Sarah experienced a raw and spiritual communion after three years of walking at the base of a tree in the plains of Australia. Through an inspirational journey, Wild by Nature explores what it is to adventure as a woman in the most dangerous of circumstances, and what it is to be truly alone in the wild.

A woman’s passion for wilderness, family, and faith leads her to a land of harsh realities and great fulfillment - a celebrated perspective on the Alaskan experience. “This prose is a vibrant celebration, both sensual and poetic, of the familiar and unobserved nature of simple truths that abound around us. It is compelling and full-bodied, demanding to be savored. A captivating and courageous style of writing one rarely encounters.” Douglas H. Hudson ~ Alaskan and the Pacific Northwest Artist “In this collection you can experience “God’s Country” through the eyes of an adventurous author who revels in the untamed wilderness of Alaska. Here also are the seasons of personal growth and family – life with all its joys and sorrows. Whether in prose or poetry, Theresa reveals a wondrous talent for keen observation, rich description, and exquisite phrasing. Her work is both vibrant and reverent.” Norma L. Halvorsen ~ Oxford educated English professor, now retired “Turn off your radio, TV, computer, Blackberry, raspberry or everyberry and let Terry’s prose surround you. Turn on your imagination and the natural world will return in all its beauty. Terry has a way with words that will refresh your spirit.” Bob Pickrell ~ publisher of the best little magazine once in Alaska. Both are now retired “Bravo! To Terry Herda Gucker. Her poem, Magdalene, is a mini masterpiece in theology. Encore!” Father Louis L. Renner, SJ ~ historian, author, journalist and preist

"Wild by Nature answers the question: how did indigenous animals shape the course of colonization in English America? The book argues that animals acted as obstacles to colonization because their wildness was at odds with Anglo-American legal assertions of possession. Animals and their pursuers transgressed the legal lines officials drew to demarcate colonizers' sovereignty and control over the landscape. Consequently, wild creatures became legal actors in the colonizing process--the subjects of statutes, the issues in court cases, and the parties to treaties--as authorities struggled to both contain and preserve the wildness that made those animals so valuable to English settler societies in North America in the first place. Only after wild creatures were brought under the state's legal ownership and control could the land be rationally organized and possessed. The book examines the colonization of American animals as a separate strand interwoven into a larger story of English colonizing in North America. As such, it proceeds along a different and longer timeline than other colonial histories, tracing a path through various wild animal frontiers from the seventeenth-century Chesapeake into the southern backcountry in the eighteenth century and across the Appalachians in the early nineteenth to end in the southern plains in the decades after the Civil War. Along the way, it maps out an argumentative arc that describes three manifestations of colonization as it variously applied to beavers, wolves, fish, deer, and bison. Wild by Nature engages broad questions about the environment, law, and society in early America"--

This is a book for those who love adventure and who are driven to explore the earth God has created. The author draws from his own experiences in the world of sports to offer insight into the thoughts and reflections of athletes as they encounter a world of high drama and, at times, unanticipated beauty. While testing his determination and skill in mountain climbing or deep sea diving, for example, the author observes how biblical truths are as applicable in the wilds of nature as they are in a serene church setting on Sunday morning. No matter how extreme our lifestyle, God is there with those who honor him.

Robyn Davidson verwirklicht mit siebenundzwanzig Jahren einen scheinbar verrückten Traum: die australische Wüste zu durchqueren, begleitet von vier wilden Kamelen und einem Hund. Neun Monate wird es dauern, bis sie schließlich den Indischen Ozean erreicht. Neun Monate in der Wildnis, umgeben von unerträglicher Hitze, giftigen Tieren und einer Landschaft, der die Menschen gleichgültig sind. Doch im Verlauf der Reise gelingt es Robyn, ihr altes Leben mehr und mehr hinter sich zu lassen. Jenseits der Zivilisation und auf sich allein gestellt erkennt sie, was sie wirklich zum Glücklichsein braucht – bis die Begegnung mit dem Fotografen Rick sie aus der frisch gewonnenen Balance zu bringen droht ... «Eines der schönsten Bücher über das Entdecken und das Reisen.» (Doris Lessing) «Leuchtend und lebendig... Davidson ist eine wahre Abenteurerin und eine geborene Schriftstellerin.» (New Yorker) «Kein Buch für Pauschal-Touristen, auch keins für Latzhosen-Feministinnen. Aber unbedingt eines für Menschen, die unruhig geblieben sind.» (Die Zeit) «Eine packende Geschichte über Herausforderung und Mut, ein farbenprächtiges Bild Australiens, gezeichnet von einer scharfsinnigen und empfindsamen Beobachterin – und die Geschichte einer inneren Reise.» (Sydney Morning Herald)
