Product description

Review

'Two of the UK's most exciting nature writers. A thoughtful adventure in learning simple skills that help connect people to nature.' (Guardian)

'Essential reading' (Daily Express)

'At its simplest their book gives advice on connecting with nature through twelve activities... but Skimming Stones delves deeper. Each section draws the reader lyrically into deeper philosophical waters... I was simply carried along by the authors' sense of awe, and their quiet belief that our lives can be enriched through a deeper connection with nature.' 4* (BBC Wildlife)

'It's a holistic approach to enjoying the outdoors and simple activities - something we should all learn... this re-awakening is long overdue.' (Cumbria Magazine)

'The writing is well researched, if somewhat eclectic, and permeated with all the infectiousness of two boys going outdoors for the day on an adventure.' (Countryfile)

'Laid out with an easy to read large-print text and a collection of sketches, this book encourages you to take out your walking boots and learn how to survive and have fun in the wild.' (Yorkshire Ridings Magazine)

'A great book... it somehow manages to say something about nature that the rest of us can't.' (Country Walking Magazine)

'Brilliant book' (Huffington Post UK)

'Many of us love being at one with nature, and this wonderful book is packed with ideas to help you make the most of it. Indispensable for families or friends looking for new ways to get their kicks in the wild. You'll never want to go back indoors.' (Welsh Coast Magazine)

'A deeply engaging and practical guide that recommends reconnecting with nature in its purest form and awakening one's inner child... It's an appealing and orginal guide framed by personal experiences that offers a fresh perspective to nature writing.' (The Good Book Guide)
