Skimming Stones and Other Ways of Being in the Wild

by Rob Cowen and Leo Critchley - £9.99  Hodder & Stoughton (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781444735994 | ISBN 10: 1444735993

Skimming Stones and Other Ways of Being in the Wild is a book of simple skills that can help us to interact with nature, achieve a deeper connection with it and even step inside another dimension.
 
Rob Cowen and Leo Critchley teach us, for example, making and flying a kite, making an elder whistle, damming a stream and building a den - and at the same time teach us about life.
 
Their techniques are intended to be not only of practical value but also techniques for meditation. They help us to live in the moment, recover ancient insights and rhythms and encourage nature to reveal to us her secrets and treasures.
 
They write that '...there are forces deep in everyone's subconscious that find a pure expression in the simplest of activities. This book explains why we should be taking the time to do them. It is born out of a wish to share our passion for our landscape and the contemplative, reflective pleasures and joys that were well-known to our grandparents, but which are in danger of being lost and forgotten. They will help us get back to a place where we all belong'.
 
Skimming Stones was awarded the Robert Deakin Grant from the Authors' Foundation, by the Society of Authors.
