About the Book

Feel the Wild is an intimate and powerful story about Nature and our relationship with it, told through stunning photography and thought-provoking writing.

To “Feel the Wild” is to connect with the wilderness – the untamed Nature, the untamed Us, the essence of Life, through all of our senses and experience everything it has to offer – the physical, the emotional, the philosophical, and the spiritual.

Daniel Fox’s book of outdoor photography is ultimately about learning who we are and our place on this planet. It is a journey of growth told through the lenses of humility, vulnerability, and perspective.

Published in conjunction with a North American promotional tour sponsored by Arc’teryx (Vancouver, Calgary, Seattle, Portland, Palo Alto, Los Angeles, Denver, New York, Boston, and more), Feel the Wild is certain to infuse everyone with the majesty of the natural world and revive within the reader a deep connection to every living thing.

“Fox is a modern Henry David Thoreau with the eye of an Ansel Adams. Through his compelling and intimate stories and his photography, Daniel invites us to look at nature not as a destination or as a separate entity, but rather as a mentor and mindset. His message is inspiring and reflective.”
— Chip Conley, Hospitality entrepreneur and bestselling author

“To “feel the wild” one must truly embed one’s self in it. This is obviously what Daniel Fox has spent time doing, keenly experiencing, savouring and appreciating with his whole being. His breathtaking photos and thoughtful verbal accounts reflect this communion with nature at every level.”
— Robert Bateman, Canadian naturalist and painter

“Daniel Fox knows that there are no words and no photographs that can capture and hold nature as well as your imagination. Yet he meticulously shares stories and makes beautiful images that compel us to listen. It’s his hope for you and his dream for all young people that will stoke your adventurous spirit, reactivate your most wild memories and lead you to the best version of yourself. What makes Daniel’s work special and important is that it stirs us deep inside, where his story meets ours, his dream overlaps with yours and his curiosity becomes contagious.”
— Wallace J. Nichols, author of Bluemind

“He dives deep into his thoughts while reaching out to the vast horizons. The reader is even treated to pages from his travel journals, filled with copious notes, drawings, stories, and hand-drawn graphics.” – Treehugger
