    Published first at http://www.orionmagazine.org/index.php/newsfrom187/entry/7679/ “Wyld-Er-Ness” is a documentary series from the hearts of people who find passion and inspiration from nature. It is a story that reclaims nature as a place for truth and personal discovery. The more we use the language of nature the more we preserve nature itself. “Wyld-Er-Ness” invites you to hear from authors, naturalists, and activists, who have spent time in communion in the great “hardwood Cathedrals”. Their stories transport us to our darkest fears of nature and transcend us with a new sublime understanding of the Wyld. We invite you to hear their stories and come along on their journeys. Produced in part by a grant from the North Carolina Arts and Science Council.
