“I recall my father’s dark tanned neck, creased with lines of dust, as he tilled our garden. I ran ahead of him, pulling rocks and bones and toys from his path.” — The Nature Principle
In Last Child in the Woods, I focused on why children need nature. In my latest book, The Nature Principle, I tell how the whole family — and whole communities — can become happier, healthier and smarter through more contact with the natural world.
