This informed, personal, and practical book welcomes us into the great outdoors with open arms. Dr Higgins invites readers to connect with nature, not for didactic, political, or romantic reasons, but for the very simple reason that we are, fundamentally, environmental animals. We are best suited to be at one with nature. As a practical guide, the reader is given permission, along with the tools, to build their own version of their connection with nature. The book is a practical guide to the gentle process of regaining our humanity.
