Being “wild” has always carried a negative connotation, especially for marginalized groups, but how much could we gain from shaking off social constraints and embracing freedom? In this Wild issue, we explore people, groups, and social ideas that are committed to liberation at all costs whether it’s the freedom fighters in Palestine, activists making the outdoors more accessible, or Western American writers remaking the Wild West lit canon. We get to create the future we desire and we will, no matter how long it takes.
