Clover Stroud: The Wild Other
Recovery and Loving in the Wild

At the age of sixteen Clover Stroud’s mother had a catastrophic riding accident and Clover’s incredibly happy family life fell apart.

In this achingly brilliant memoir Stroud writes about her search for somewhere new she can call home - she gallops across England’s idyllic Cotswolds to boomtown Dublin and the traveller rave scene of Ireland in the 2000s; across the plains of Texas where she overcomes local suspicions to become a well respected cowgirl, before finally travelling to the war-torn South Caucasus of Russia.

The journey takes her far and wild, travelling deep into her childhood tragedy, until a most extraordinary conclusion that is both explosive as well as deeply thought-provoking.

An uplifting story of love and survival reminiscent of H is for Hawk and Cheryl Strayed’s Wild.

Clover Stroud is a writer and journalist writing for the Daily Mail, Sunday Times and Daily Telegraph, among others.
