WILD ROOTS - Coming Alive in the French Amazon

By Donna Mulvenna

Environment & nature, Travel | eBook


Love, adventure, triumph and torment, this book will forever change how you see the natural world. What happens when you think you are joining your new boyfriend in France, but instead find yourself hacking through impenetrable jungle, being threatened by wild animals and canoeing along the anaconda infested rivers of the French Amazon? Written with humour, a respect for nature and a conscious knowledge that we must somehow rebuild our relationship with it, this is a story of an incredible life and a dramatic personal transformation, in one of the most inhospitable parts of the planet. For those who dare, this is a story about how one journey can unexpectedly alter the course of a life.




Donna is a horticulturist and writer who lives on the fringe of the Amazon forest in French Guiana. She left behind decades of corporate writing to begin writing about nature, health, passion, love, and living simply and sustainably — in essence, her code for living a good life. In her ramblings she hopes to offer a glimpse of the true wonder of the Amazon, reveal its profound effect on each of us and inspire readers to build a connection with the natural world. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to people who are not her kind of wild, but Donna refuses to own a mobile phone, rarely wears shoes, and is passionate about living on a whole food, plant-based diet. If she can’t be found swinging in a hammock with a laptop in hand or somewhere off the coast reading from her sea kayak, you will find her hurtling along the great Amazonian rivers in a sprint canoe. “Happiness does find us,” she says. “We just have to slow down and lighten our load a little. Only then can we discover the wonder and awe in our world, and in the process gain a true sense of who we are, why we are here, and where we are heading.”
