Product Description


'Many of us love being at one with nature, and this wonderful book is packed with ideas to help you make the most of it. Indispensable for families or friends looking for new ways to get their kicks in the wild. You'll never want to go back indoors.'―Welsh Coast Magazine

'Two of the UK's most exciting nature writers. A thoughtful adventure in learning simple skills that help connect people to nature.'―Guardian

'The writing is well researched, if somewhat eclectic, and permeated with all the infectiousness of two boys going outdoors for the day on an adventure.'―Countryfile

'A deeply engaging and practical guide that recommends reconnecting with nature in its purest form and awakening one's inner child... It's an appealing and orginal guide framed by personal experiences that offers a fresh perspective to nature writing.'―The Good Book Guide

'Laid out with an easy to read large-print text and a collection of sketches, this book encourages you to take out your walking boots and learn how to survive and have fun in the wild.'―Yorkshire Ridings Magazine

'It's a holistic approach to enjoying the outdoors and simple activities - something we should all learn... this re-awakening is long overdue.'―Cumbria Magazine

'Essential reading'―Daily Express

'Brilliant book'―Huffington Post UK

'At its simplest their book gives advice on connecting with nature through twelve activities... but Skimming Stones delves deeper. Each section draws the reader lyrically into deeper philosophical waters... I was simply carried along by the authors' sense of awe, and their quiet belief that our lives can be enriched through a deeper connection with nature.' 4*―BBC Wildlife

'A great book... it somehow manages to say something about nature that the rest of us can't.'―Country Walking Magazine

About the Author

Rob Cowen is an author, award-winning journalist and outdoorsman. Growing up on the Yorkshire moors created a passion for the natural world that has been central in his life ever since. After graduating with first class honours from Leeds University, Rob has written extensively on travel and nature for The Independent, The Telegraph and The Express and currently writes a column on woodland for Independent on Sunday. He has also appeared on BBC 2's The Culture Show and Channel 4's Time Team as a wild food expert. He now lives and writes in North Yorkshire.

Leo was born and raised in London but always pined for the fresh sea air and wide-open spaces of the south west where he was taken on yearly holidays. Graduating from Christ's College, Cambridge having switched subjects from Natural Sciences to English Literature due to a lamentable lack of poetry in the former, he went on to start a company teaching kung fu, before a spell as a management consultant and web designer. He now writes and lives in West London.
