A pocket full of wonder - Kari Herbert

What relevance does the wilderness have in the modern world?

Travel writer and storyteller Kari Herbert explains how time in the wilderness can powerfully reset your connection to nature and your own sense of self. As an author, traveller and artist, Kari has had vivid and varied experiences of living and travelling in remote places. She first started travelling at the age of ten months when her father, pioneering explorer Sir Wally Herbert, took his family to live with a tribe of Polar Inuit on a remote island off the coast of Northwest Greenland.

Exploration and shaping stories have been her passions ever since. Kari’s work has been published in magazines and newspapers all over the world. Her first book – The Explorer’s Daughter – published by Penguin, was aired as Book of the Week for BBC Radio 4. Her other books include Heart of the Hero, which drew attention to the remarkable achievements of the wives of celebrated explorers, and the international bestseller Explorers’ Sketchbooks, co-authored with her husband Huw Lewis-Jones.
