Synopsis

Shortlisted for THE WAINWRIGHT BOOK PRIZE 2017



'This story - so fierce and brave and visceral and raw - will stay with me forever. Clover Stroud is a force of nature, and a woman who is fearless in the face of life and death. I loved it.' Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat Pray Love



'There is so much richly evoked life here... beautifully written.' Cathy Rentzenbrink, The Times



'This redemptive memoir will steal your heart; it will return it bruised but emboldened.' Mail on Sunday



'Beautifully written...I love this book.' India Knight



'Compelling and candid, deftly weaving together past and present... a heart-wrenching story told in haunting, lyrical prose.' Tatler



'I have huge admiration for the spirit of this memoir, and its author: full of heart, bravery and adventure. A moving, gripping read.' Amy Liptrot, author of The Outrun



Clover Stroud's idyllic childhood in rural England was shattered when a horrific riding accident left her mother permanently brain-damaged.



Just sixteen, she embarked on a journey to find the sense of home that had been so savagely broken. Travelling from gypsy camps in Ireland, to the rodeos of west Texas and then to Russia's war-torn Caucasus, Clover eventually found her way back to England's lyrical Vale of the White Horse.



The Wild Other is a grippingly honest account of love, loss, family and the healing strength of nature. Powerful and deeply emotional, this is the story of an extraordinary life lived at its fullest.
