“[T]he spirit of this sweet book is such that one is inclined…to think: ‘What a great idea!’ And there is no doubting that Mr. Moss is onto something…this winning, lightly illustrated volume might be just the thing to bring on a family summer vacation — provided everyone is willing to shut the laptop and turn off the cellphone for a while. Mr. Moss would like to see us stop pecking at BlackBerrys and start picking blackberries—and good for him.”
—Wall Street Journal
“Simple in the best kind of way, this is a wonderful collection of naturalistic explorations….[A] bible of things you ought to do and know, complete with pretty line drawings of flora and fauna, rules for games, charts of information, and steps on how to explore the great outdoors as children used to do. For adults, this is a warm and homey walk down memory lane, a remembrance of simpler times and the joy of just being outside.”
