Publisher's Summary

In a stressful, chaotic world, many of us are turning to nature for a sense of serenity and happiness.

While the idea of the wild outdoors is enticing, though, our busy lives and our location can cause us to become detached from nature. Down to the River and Up to the Trees will show you how to connect with the natural world around you, whether you live in the city or the countryside.

From getting to know the local wildlife to foraging and creating naturally sourced masterpieces, Down to the River is brimming with practical information, intriguing quotes and inspirational ideas. Discover how to carve your own spoon or to be able to tell if the moon is waxing or waning, or try forest bathing (surrounding yourself with trees). Learn how to make yourself at home amongst the animals and plants on your doorstep, in harmony with your surroundings.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    struggled with this one, I feel it didn't have enough depth.
    I feel this book would be better suited as a reference book.
