Description
The author of seven books about family, nature, and community, San Diego Union-Tribune columnist Richard Louv here takes a hard look at the developmental deficit in children that can occur when they grow up without contact with the natural world. Louv mines a body of scientific research that indicates rises in obesity, attention disorders, and depression can be related to the absence of nature in the lives of today's wired generation, and argues that direct exposure to nature is essential for healthy development and the physical and emotional health of both children and adults. Louv also offers a series of practical solutions.

"Parents, educators, therapists, and city officials can benefit from taking seriously Louv's call for a 'nature-child reunion'."Scientific American
