You Took the Kids Where?: Adventuring While Your Children Are Young (Paperback)
Must adventure disappear from your life as children enter? Not at all
It can be the best learning experience your family will ever encounter...
Doug Woodward and Trish Severin have spent decades introducing their children to the value of living at ease in the wilds of nature, as well as learning lessons from people who live much simpler lives than do most of us in the United States. These pages come alive with exciting family adventures and blend with the philosophy of why these parents would choose such paths.
Their now-adult children also reflect on how this upbringing has given them the confidence to move with assurance in whatever environment they may find themselves, relating to family, friends and strangers in ways that most children rarely understand at an early age, if ever.
As a jump-start for your own family adventures, Doug has outlined equipment checklists and planning advice for a variety of trips that will take you beyond the routine. Don't wait There is hardly an age too young for an exciting family experience
102 photos. Appendix of planning advice and equipment checklists to cover hiking, camping, bicycle touring, canoeing and rafting -- in the U.S. and abroad.
