Summary

Why Children Need Wild Places In this unique collaboration, two naturalists ask what may happen now that so many more children are denied exposure to wildness than at any other time in human history. "This thoughtful presentation, testifying to children's need for direct contact with nature, has value for parents and those who work with children." -Publishers Weekly
