Uncommon Education traces the evolution of Prescott College. In this compelling work, Samuel Henrie and others reveal what led to the inception of this special institution, the philosophy behind it, and a rare curriculum that includes adventure education, social and ecological justice fieldwork, and other hands-on and unique educational opportunities.

"Sam Henrie has made an immense contribution to higher education by chronicling this grand, ongoing adventure in learning. Prescott College's hands-on, feet-in-the-field approach not only makes far more sense than the cattle calls that pass for education at most places, but its amazing resilience and resurrection is one of the most hopeful stories for our times-a true tale of how good ideas really can win if we never give up."
-Alan Weisman, Laureate Professor of Journalism, University of Arizona, retired Professor of Writing at Prescott College, author of The World Without Us, Gaviotas: A Village to Reinvent the World, and other works
