"An absolute must-read for adventure seekers everywhere!"
"Forced me to rethink my routine and how I, along with most of us, have lost sight of what truly is important."
Written by Brian Meier, the founder of Get Lost, Awaken the Bear is a small book with a big message: Wilderness makes us better.
Awaken the Bear takes a deep-dive into the idea that reconnecting with our wilder nature—waking up, you might say, our inner bear—is a crucial component in our well-being. Let's face it. The modern world has lulled us into a collective hibernation. To wake up, we need to stop the noise, activate our senses, and re-wild our daily patterns.
Each chapter is a reminder that the goal for all of us should be to live a life that is wild and authentic. But change like this doesn't happen on its own. Page by page, Awaken the Bear lays out simple, actionable ways to open the doors to a wilder and more meaningful life.

"This book is a memory inducing journey that brings back moments of my own adventures as a young man. Brian’s words are a reminder for us all to get out of our routine, get out of our cities and get back to nature. The quiet and solitude recharges us and allows us to reflect and grow. If you want a book that you can read more than once, this is it. I read it on a 4 hour flight and read it again on the way back. It’s one that I take on work trips to remind me to take trips to escape. Check it out, you won’t regret it."
"After I finished reading the book, I did two things: (1) I read it again, and (2) I bought a pair of hiking boots . . . Reading this was time well spent. Powerful."
