For many of us, thinking about the future conjures up images of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road: a post-apocalyptic dystopia stripped of nature. Richard Louv, author of the landmark bestseller Last Child in the Woods, urges us to change our vision of the future, suggesting that if we reconceive environmentalism and sustainability, they will evolve into a larger movement that will touch every part of society.

This New Nature Movement taps into the restorative powers of the natural world to boost mental acuity and creativity; promote health and wellness; build smarter and more sustainable businesses, communities, and economies; and ultimately strengthen human bonds. Supported by groundbreaking research, anecdotal evidence, and compelling personal stories, Louv offers renewed optimism while challenging us to rethink the way we live.

Review:

“An exploration of the many happy repercussions of getting in touch with the environment.” – Austin Chronicle


“Louv describes the many ways in which reconnecting to the natural world is fundamental to human well-being...I believe [Louv’s] onto something important, and not just for children...So consider this a bit of health care advice: Get outside and dive in - nose first.” – Charlotte Observer


“Louv’s vital, inclusive, and inspiriting call to better our lives by celebrating and protecting the living world marks the way to profound personal and cultural transformation.”―Booklist, starred review
(Booklist)

"Louv takes nature-deficit disorder, introduce in his seminal Last Child in the Woods, a step further, to argue that adults need nature, too . . . [This] book may be just what our high-tech, urban culture needs to bring us down to earth." --Publishers Weekly
(Austin Chronicle)

“[Louv’s] onto something important here, something lasting, and by the time you turn the final page, you’ll not only understand why you should make or deepen your own connections to nature, you’ll know how... His book is a stirring argument for not waiting a moment longer.” ―San Diego Union Tribune
(Chicago Tribune)

“Louv's writing style is clear and raises many valid points...Louv's latest isn't much more than age-old wisdom, but it bears repeating in an asphalt-coated world.” – Austin American Statesman
(Westword)

“What would life be like if we were as immersed in nature as we are in electronics? In Richard Louv’s world, we’d be happier and healthier. We’d experience fewer cases of depression, anxiety and attention deficit disorder. And we’d build smarter, more sustainable communities.” – Chicago Tribune
(Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)

“[A] forward-looking book for NDD sufferers of all ages. In The Nature Principle, Louv takes stock of exactly what we’ve lost in leaving the natural world behind and how we might get it back.” –Westword
(Minneapolis Star Tribune)

“Parents, Richard Louv doesn't hesitate to tell you that your kids should spend more time outdoors, in nature. And that you should, too.” – Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
(Kirkus Reviews)

The Nature Principle is, in essence, a book for grown-ups who crave -- and need -- nature just as much as kids” – Minneapolis Star Tribune
(Robert Michael Pyle)
