‘A breathless chase thriller with a warm ecological heart.’
Inga Simpson, author of The Last Woman in the World

‘Fiction at its rebellious, fast-paced best with hope as its touchstone, making The Rewilding an urgent novel for our times.’ Sally Piper, author of Bone Memories

‘A genre-bending page-turner from an author of the highest calibre: Cameron’s writing is rich, evocative and comes straight from the heart.’ Anna Downes, author of The Safe Place

An exhilarating and unforgettable love song for our world.
Heartbroken and in fear for his life, corporate whistle blower, Jagger Eckerman, escapes to hide out in a remote cave, but kick-arse radical, Nia Moretti, is furious a ‘capitalist suit’ has taken over her cave. It is hatred at first sight.
Yet Nia is hiding for reasons of her own, ones that drag Jagger closer to death as they are forced on the run together and he is unwittingly pulled deeper into Nia’s reckless mission to help save the planet. But who can save Jagger from the relentless pursuit of the man who wants him dead?
Both an electrifying cat-and-mouse-chase and an odd couple love story, The Rewilding captures the essence of what it means to be alive today in this cusp of change pulsing with possibilities. It is a passionate intimation of hope.
