Join Emma and Hannah as they discuss how humans have fallen out of sync with nature, even as science acknowledges all the healing benefits of being outside, and how and why we can live longer and happier lives surrounded by wildness.

~*~*~

For centuries, we have known that nature is good for us. But in an era when climate change is accelerating and we spend 87% of our days indoors, it is clear that we are out of sync with the earth that nourishes us. In response, writer and environmentalist Emma Loewe blends new research and ancient knowledge on nature’s healing properties into a book divided into eight landscapes, with wisdom on how to explore and protect each one in return. Drawing off modern science, she uncovers why living by the ocean makes you measurably happier, why living near greenery helps you lives longer, and why forests can make us more relaxed within 90 seconds of walking among trees.

Alongside beautiful four-color illustrations that inspire readers to get outside, this stunning book—more urgent than ever—will appeal to anyone looking to connect with the world around them, whether in their neighborhood park or on a backpacking getaway.
