There is more to being a man of the wilderness than just being in the wild. The wild must live in you and call from the depths of who you are.
Zachary Byrd obviously hears the call of the wild in his heart and hopes to use this video as a way to speak to others. A hunter, fisherman, trapper and all around outdoorsman Byrd speaks to the heart of every back-to-the-land and wilderness-longing person out there.
Byrd says, “All I know is that being within the wild and participating in the circling cycle of life not only heals me but it rejuvenates my spirit.”
This short video is in the spirit of Thoreau and Emerson. Byrd brings to life the poetry in his heart as he tells of the call that’s deep within.
The call of the wild is only heard by the one in whose soul it lives.
