"Born to Rewild" Documentary + Author Reading from "Heart Of A Lion"
Born to Rewild, the film:
With Bruce Springsteen's "Born To Run" and Steppenwolf's  "Born To Be Wild" alternating in his head --hence the film's hybrid title, wilderness ultratrekker John Davis traveled 5,000 human-powered miles from Sonora, Mexico to British Columbia through the Western Wildway, a mega wildlife corridor along the western spine of North America, during an epic conservation journey called TrekWest. Davis believes, if we learn to work together now, we can save what we love before it's too late. If we connect our best wild places, we will give wildlife enough room to survive and do what comes naturally -- keeping our landscapes and communities healthy.

It's about identifying problems and supporting their solutions. Taking the route of grizzlies, wolves, cougars and jaguars, John experienced their greatest challenges in getting where they need to go. This alone, however, would accomplish little. He went the extra mile, meeting conservation heroes, weaving together the citizen and science-based groups on the front lines of reconnecting and protecting wildlife corridors and animals on the move and learning about amazing projects that are key to connecting western wild places.

With some magnificent cinematography shot by the late Ed George, in whose memory the film is dedicated, and directed by Sedona filmmaker Bryan Reinhart, "Born To Rewild" is a remarkable achievement. It's a film of hope and of a big screen, visual splendor that serves as  a reminder of just how stunningly beautiful the natural landscape of America truly is and should always remain.

John Davis has been described as a triathlete meets John Muir. He is a cofounder of Wildlands Network, former editor of the journal Wild Earth, program officer at Foundation for Deep Ecology, conservation director of Adirondack Council, and ongoing volunteer land ranger in Split Rock Wildway. John lives in Essex, New York.

"Heart Of A Lion", the book:
The extraordinary saga of one wild mountain lions two-thousand-mile journey from the Black Hills of the Dakotas to the Atlantic Coast. Late one June night in 2011, an SUV collided with a large animal on a Connecticut parkway, a creature appearing as something out of New England's forgotten past. Beside the road lay a 140-pound mountain lion. Speculations ran wild, figuring the lion as somebody's exotic pet turned loose, or perhaps a ghostly survivor from a bygone century when lions last roamed the eastern United States. But facts even more fantastic soon unfolded. The lion was just three years old, a barely weaned teenager with a trail reaching back through two thousand miles of hostile terrain to the Black Hills of South Dakota. It was the farthest landbound trek ever recorded for a wild animal in America.

Here is the story of the lions two-year journey from his embattled birthplace in the Black Hills, across the Great Plains and the Mississippi River, through Midwest metropolises and remote northern forests, to his tragic finale upon Connecticut's Gold Coast. Along the way, the lion traverses land with people gunning for his kind, as well as those championing his cause. Heart of Lion is a romantic tragedy, a hero's quest, with a background lens focused upon the ambivalent nation of people this lone cat traversed. As to whether the take-home is one of hope or despair, let the reader decide. "This is one stirring account of one stirring journey-- the trek of a fellow creature though a hostile, manmade world-- and through our imaginations." --Bill McKibben, author of Earth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet

William Stolzenburg has written hundreds of magazine articles about the science and spirit of saving wild creatures. A 2010 Alicia Journalism Fellow, he is the author of Where the Wild Things Were and Rat Island, and is also a screenwriter of the documentaries Lords of Nature: Life in a Land of Great Predators and Ocean Frontiers: The Dawn of a New Era in Ocean Stewardship. He lives in Reno, Nevada.

More and more conservationists, natural historians, and others believe that there is an ecological and moral imperative to welcome home  or even to actively reintroduce -- the creatures we eradicated as we populated this region. "To reintroduce the panther is to reintroduce a giant fear of the wild, and also a giant wonder.  It is not our duty to ask which is greater.  To have the animal is always greater.  Janisse Ray, American writer, naturalist and environmental activist.
