Product Description

The author understands the need for children to break out of the normal institutionalized "system" of learning that so many are stuck in today; observing the lack of understanding about life, the earth, and nature, he has spent countless hours teaching and observing children in nature. He introduces his book with his ideas to install nature awareness in people, providing a foundation for the rest of the book. Children will learn tracking, how to observe nature, survival skills, "lostproofing", shelter, food, and water knowledge and more. Weaving in his own story of learning such things as a child, along with his experiences teaching others, this unique guide is a educational, delightful way to spend time outdoors. 227 indexed pages, softcover.
