Wild Happy: Dreams, Crises, and Acceptance in the Jungles of Papua New Guinea

At 24, Ryan Casseau set off for the most remote jungle he could find, the farthest corner of Papua New Guinea, alone, and without a single contact in his future home.
It was powered by 10 years of fantasy, but it wasn’t a vacation. He was there to collect plants in an effort to discover medicines from those who rely on the forest.
But while he was worried about getting work done and getting back to civilization, something unexpected got in the way: everything.
In equal parts humorous, unnerving, uplifting, and reflective, “Wild Happy” fiercely captures a bewildered boy and the lost world that took him in, shared its hidden wisdom, and changed his life forever.
