            We're a famously nature-loving nation, yet 86 per cent of Australians call the city home. Amid the concrete and the busyness, how can we also answer the call of the wild? Once upon a time, a burnt-out Claire Dunn spent a year living off the grid in a wilderness survival program. ...Yet love and the possibilities of human connection drew her back to the city, where she soon found herself as overscheduled, addicted to her phone, and lost in IKEA as the rest of us. Given all the city offers - comfort, convenience, community, and opportunity - she wants to stay. But to do so, she'll have to learn how to rewild her own urban soul. Join Claire as she sits by and swims in the brown waters of the Yarra River, forages for undomesticated food in the suburbs, and explores many other practices in a quest for connection. To make our human hearts whole, she realises, we've all got to pay attention and learn to belong to our cities - our land. This is where change begins. For ourselves and for the world.

            The Optimist: A Case for the Fly Fishing Life

            A lyrical tribute and practical guide to the art and philosophy of fly fishing, with funny and thoughtful commentary on its practices, customs, and lifestyle--by an expert and life-long fisherman. What if you could escape the stress of everyday life, unplug, and enjoy the simple ...pleasure of being outside, standing near a beautiful stream, the only sound being the moment the fish rises to skim atop the water? Now, in The Optimist you can not only experience fly fishing firsthand but also revel in the landscapes, local knowledge, and the incredible settings that are the backdrop, and often, the foreground of fly fishing. In lyrical yet concise prose, author David Coggins shares eccentric traditions and their specific locales--from remote Canada, the South Carolina flats, the great rivers of Patagonia--to landing in a float plane on a remote pond in northern Maine or chasing striped bass in New York City's Jamaica Bay. Along the way, he shares entertaining details about the parts of fishing that aren't the fishing--the drift boats, the wise guides, the bad motels, and the even worse beer, that are all part of the experience. Each chapter of The Optimist focuses on a specific place, fish, and skill. Only a select few have the vision required to catch the nearly invisible bonefish on the Bahamas flats, for example. Or the patience necessary to land the elusive Atlantic salmon, the fish of a thousand casts, in eastern Canada. Through these fishing paradises, Coggins reveals the secrets of the anglers' club. Like a good cocktail, The Optimist is a satisfying mixture of three ingredients: one-part narration of Coggins's own angling obsessions and adventures, one-part practical how-to, one-part meditation on the hidden virtues--focus, stillness, practice, a connection to the natural world. The perfect fly fishing book for today's novice, enthusiastic amateur, as well as the devoted angler, The Optimist offers a practical path toward enlightenment while also providing a much-
