COYOTE’S GUIDE TO CONNECTING WITH NATURE, 2ND EDITION RELEASED
Expanded material provides new methods of mentoring children in nature
It’s been hailed by Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods, as “good medicine for nature-deficit disorder.” The first edition quickly became the essential guidebook for mentors, parents, teachers, camp directors, and others wanting fun and exciting ways to connect children (and adults!) with nature.
Now, the completely revised and updated Coyote’s Guide to Connecting with Nature, 2nd Edition has been released by OWLink Media. Written by Jon Young, Ellen Haas, and Evan McGown, this second edition is an even more valuable resource for reconnecting people to the natural world.
For a limited time, the book is available with special bonus videos and other material at the http://NatureMentoring.com web site.
“I was mentored by Tom Brown, Jr. from the age of ten,” says naturalist and co-author Jon Young. “Tom was in turn mentored by an Apache named Stalking Wolf. I then studied many nature connected cultures and found common threads. For nearly thirty years, I and the other authors have been testing and refining these methods for use in the modern world. There is simply no approach to connecting people to nature that is nearly as powerful (or as fun) as what we share in this book.”
Based on feedback from nature mentors and educators around the world, the second edition is not only more comprehensive – it’s grown from 408 to 548 pages – but it’s much easier to use, with beautiful full color photographs, a comprehensive index, and color codes that link the principles and activities for easier navigation.
Coyote mentoring is a method of learning that has been refined over thousands of years, based on instilling the need-to-know. Coyote’s Guide to Connecting with Nature, 2nd Edition reveals this approach and what happens to student and teacher during the mentoring process. Strategies like questioning, storytelling, tracking, mapping, and practicing survival skills will inspire student curiosity and encourage self-sufficiency. Background information will help parents, teachers and others feel more confident in introducing children to new ways of experiencing and learning about the natural world.
Coyote’s Guide is comprehensive, and some readers of the first edition asked for help knowing where to begin. In response, OWLink has produced a four-part web educational series (2 hours of video in all) full of additional information that will help any reader put the Guide to work with confidence. That series has been bundled into a special package, including a free copy of Coyote’s Guide, 2nd Edition.
