Richard Louv, as much, if not more, anyone else, has helped kindle awareness of the need to connect children to the natural world. He has done this through a vital series of books - Last Child in the Woods, The Nature Principle, Vitamin N, and his newest, which he visits with tonight, Our Wild Calling: How Connecting Animals Can Transform Our Lives - and Save Theirs (Algonquin Books).
“These pages weave a wondrous tapestry in which we all are crucial threads. It’s a picture of our own creation, about a future we will share, a future we can strive to make worth living for.”—Carl Safina.
“Richard Louv has done it again. A remarkable book that will help everyone break away from their fixed gaze at the screens that dominate our lives and remember instead that we are animals in a world of animals.” —Bill McKibben.
