Promotional Information

This huge international bestseller, fully revised for non-American readers, is now in paperback. Last Child in the Woods shows how our children have become increasingly alienated and distant from nature, why this matters, and what we can do to make a difference. It is unsentimental, rigorous and utterly original.

About the Author

Richard Louv, winner of the 2008 Audobon Medal, is chairman of the Children and Nature Network and honorary co-chair of the National Forum on Children and Nature. He is the author of seven other books and has written for newspapers and magazines including the New York Times and the Washington Post.

Reviews

"'This is a hugely important book that should be read by every parent, teacher and politician... It's message is about connection to nature... This restatement of a truth we all know, deep inside, has never been more timely.' Tim Smit, Chief Executive of The Eden Project 'Nature is as important to children as food and sleep... Much like outdoor play itself, Last Child in the Woods actively engages... What Louv certainly persuades of is that in nature a child finds freedom... and genuine creativity...' Rosie Boycott, Literary Review 'A cri de coeur for our children' Margaret Stead, Guardian 'A single sentence explains why Louv's book is so important: "our children", he writes, "are the first generation to be raised without meaningful contact with the natural world." This matters, and Last Child in the Woods makes it patently clear why and lays out a path back.' Ecologist"
