“Teaching our children about the world is important, teaching them about the natural world is even more important. Guiding my daughter through nature, helping her see it, experience it and love it has helped me see it, experience it and love it all the more. In ‘Closer to the Ground’ Dylan Tomine shares with us the most intimate of things, time spent with his children”.

Jo Anne and Gearoid

About This Book

Closer to the Ground is the deeply personal story of a father learning to share his love of nature with his children, not through the indoor lens of words or pictures, but directly, palpably, by exploring the natural world together as they forage, cook and eat from the woods and sea.

This compelling, masterfully written tale follows Dylan Tomine and his family through four seasons as they hunt chanterelles, fish for salmon, dig clams and gather at the kitchen table, mouths watering, to enjoy the fruits of their labor. Closer to the Ground captures the beauty and surprise of the natural world and the ways it teaches us how to live with humor, gratitude and a nose for adventure as keen as a child's. It is a book filled with weather, natural history and many delicious meals.
