Written by Richard Louv

In A Sense of WonderRachel Carson describe a child's exploration of the natural world and the attachment to the environment that this engenders.  InLast Child in the Woods Richard Louv emphasizes the disconnect of children from nature today and the consequences that this unnatural separation has for the child and, ultimately, for the world.  Louv calls this disconnect "nature-deficit disorder," discusses it in detail and offers solutions to this critical problem, as well as a guide with 100 practical actions we can take.  This is an important book: Stephen Jay Gould said, "What you do not love, you will not protect;" Chief Seattle said, "When you separate yourselves from the beasts, you will die of a great loneliness."
