Review: Wilderness: The Gateway to the Soul


Wilderness: The Gateway to the Soul by Scott Stillman
Wild Soul Press, 2018
198 pgs

Book review by Lillian Crook

This slim self-published volume is written by a young man, a blogger. Most of Stillman’s chapters focus on various places he visits throughout the western United States. About midway through the book, he and his girlfriend sell their house and set off on a full-time yearlong explore of the country. Read this for your own journey’s inspiration. “These pristine places of magic and beauty, they are not exclusive. They are not here solely for the rich and the famous, the royal and the privileged few. They are here for everyone, free of charge.”
