Embrace adventures both big and small and pursue your wild ideas with this motivational guidebook from seasoned adventurer and podcaster, Shelby Stanger.

Will to Wild is an instruction-manual-to-adventure. Your leader is enthusiastic outdoorswoman Shelby Stanger. Stanger has been teaching folks how to leap into the unknown since she taught her first surf class over twenty years ago. Over the years, she watched many of her students quit their jobs, end dysfunctional relationships, and move across the country for a healthier work-life-balance--all after spending a bit of time in nature.

Shelby marveled at the phenomenon. Time spent outside was changing the lives of her students, her peers, and herself. She was so intrigued that she began to tell their stories, first as a writer and journalist, then as a podcast host for Wild Ideas Worth Living, REI Co-Op Studio's flagship podcast.

With her first book, Will to Wild, Shelby shares all she has witnessed and learned in her years while covering adventurers. It's the book she wishes she had had when she first felt the urge to leap from familiar to wild terrain. This one takes you step-by-step from the first inkling of inspiration for your own wild idea through fear and self-doubt and on to the finish line.

In these pages, you will find stories with practical tips and tactics from world-famous rock climbers and expert mountain-climbers to longtime thru-hikers, desk-jockeys-who've-figured-out-how-to-get-off-the-clock, seventy-five-year-old boogie boarding grandmas, and so many more. Along with Shelby, they will show you how to get unstuck, how to pay attention to trail signs that point you toward your adventure, how to face your fears, and what to do when everything goes haywire (which will likely happen, never fear ).

With Shelby's characteristic strength and vulnerability, this book encourages you to break out of your comfort zones, get out into nature, and bring your own wild ideas to life. Whether you're already an adventure junkie or someone who's never set up a tent, there's something in this audiobook for you.
