Review:

«This book makes a major contribution to the growing movement for ecological consciousness and care for place. In perhaps his wildest move, Nathan Hensley recasts curriculum theorists as a community of healers.» (David A. Greenwood, Canada Research Chair in Environmental Education; Lakehead University; Co-editor of ‘Place-Based Education in the Global Age: Local Diversity’)
«In this essential text Nathan Stewart Hensley illuminates with breath-taking clarity the perils and possibilities that we face as a generation on the edge. If there ever was a teachable moment – a time of disequilibrium and dislocation, a time when the predictable and the common-place are recognized as inadequate and when lesson plans are thrown into doubt and newness can enter – that moment is now. Hensley shows us how to seize the time.» (William Ayers, Author of ‘Teaching Toward Freedom’ and ‘To Teach, the Journey in Comics’)
«(This is) a cogent summons to put life back into education, reconnect the young with their places, and defy the clueless who would pave over the minds and spirits of the young [...] Hensley asks teachers and educators to break down the walls, connect, embrace, see, experience [...] essential reading.» (David Orr, Paul Sears Professor of Environmental Studies and Politics, Oberlin College; Author of ‘Down to the Wire and Hope is an Imperative’)
«At a time when we are often confused about how to live sustainably and leave a better world for our children, Nathan Hensley’s Curriculum Studies Gone Wild offers us an antidote for our malaise. Our children deserve an education founded on these precepts.» (Florence Krall Shepard, Author of ‘Ecotone’)
