About the Book    The Wilderness Within se situe à la limite même de la réalité, où on se retrouve devant les forces de la nature à l´état sauvage et foisonnant de beauté. Les images tissées par Michel A. Thérien créent une sorte de hantise chez le lecteur, et l´entraînent dans un merveilleux parcours poétique où il tente de saisir les multiples facettes de l´univers qui se dévoilent à ses yeux en assumant, enfin et pleinement, son corps sauvage, the wilderness within.
   The Wilderness Within lies at the raw edge of reality where nature, depicted as wild and teeming with beauty, is a force to be reckoned with. Michel A. Thérien´s layered and haunting images take us on a stunning poetic journey where one strives to embrace the universe in all its myriad forms by coming to terms with the wilderness within.
