Synopsis: Savage Girls and Wild Boys traces the compelling history of extraordinary children, brought up in the wilderness, or locked up for long years in solitary confinement. In a poignant and beautifully written account, Michael Newton explores both the lives of these children and of the adults who 'rescued', educated or abused them.

'Thoughtful and crisply written . . . Newton tells the stories confidently, clearly and with great humanity.' Independent on Sunday

'The stories Newton has to tell are spellbinding.' Mail on Sunday

'A collection of six, extraordinary individual histories, beautifully navigated.' Evening Standard

From the Back Cover: Praise for Michael Newton’s Savage Girls and Wild Boys

“Newton’s thoughtful and crisply written book...tells [the stories] confidently, clearly, and with great humanity.”
---Richard Davenport-Hines, author of The Pursuit of Oblivion and Gothic

“Newton’s style and tone set out to entertain. He is scholarly, playful, and very slightly mad.”
---Ian Sansom, author of The Truth About Babies

“A fascinating, truly thought-provoking book, written with passionate intelligence.”
---Melissa Murray, author of Changelings

“The stories, which Michael Newton has collected and analyzed, are parables about what it means to be human, and they demonstrate how flimsy our definition of ourselves as superior creatures actually is.”
---Peter Conrad, author of The Hitchcock Murders

“A collection of six extraordinary individual histories, beautifully navigated.”
---Francis Spufford, author of The Child That Books Built
