“Is Rewilding Sustainable?” Live Free or Die -
a TV Show from National Geographic.


excerpt:

"Perhaps the biggest hurdle, besides convincing people to give up watching Netflix on their iPads, is the learning curve. Acquiring the dauntingly vast array of know-how needed to be self-sufficient in the wilderness—from how to build animal traps or fashion arrows, to being able to differentiate between edible plants and poisonous ones--is no easy endeavor. Successful Rewilders tend to be individuals who grew up learning outdoors skills and/or have spent years gradually acquiring additional know-how. “I’ve been on a journey for a long time, retraining, re-learning,” explains Colbert, one of the characters on the program, who gave up the financial advisory business to become a subsistence trapper. “I made an intentional decision 25 years ago not to depend on technology, but instead depend on simple things and the earth. And simplify my life. As a result it’s taught me great, timeless truths spiritual truths.”
