Last child in the Woods: Saving our Children from Nature Deficit Disorder

Last Child in the Woods is the first book to bring together a new and growing body of research indicating that direct exposure to nature is essential for healthy childhood development and for the physical and emotional health of children and adults. In this influential work about the staggering divide between children and the outdoors, child advocacy expert Richard Louv directly links the lack of nature in the lives of today's wired generation - he calls it nature-deficit - to some of the most disturbing childhood trends, such as the rises in obesity, attention disorders, and depression. More than just raising an alarm, Louv offers practical solutions and simple ways to heal the broken bond - and many are right in our own backyard.
