Our Wild Calling: Release of New Paperback Edition

Today, the paperback edition of "Our Wild Calling" is officially released. I hope you'll share this news with friends and colleagues. They may find it especially helpful during the time of Covid, as we increasingly turn to other animals (wildlife and pets) for meaning and connection — not only for our sake, but for the sake of the larger family of animals.

We've added a new section to this edition, including: a comprehensive resource list for people who want to take action at home and beyond (organizations focused on habitat and animal welfare; sources for job possibilities; research and educational resources. Also: a list of discussion questions for book groups, schools and classes (hopefully held outdoors); and an author Q&A related to the pandemic and new research. Hardback, ebook, audible, large print, and foreign editions are also available.

I'm deeply appreciative for the support so many of you continue to give to "Our Wild Calling," as well as "Last Child in the Woods" and my other books; and also to the Children & Nature Network and other good organizations connecting children, families and communities to the natural world.

Congratulations Richard on the new paperback edition of “our wild calling”. Your editorial Nature Principle is a great inspiration work. I relate this with a story in my real life where I fought and won the restoration of stray Dogs’ stay in basements of state of art buildings in one of the Hi-Tech cities. Actually, there was a large barren land on which Modern Business Centres came up with large buildings a decade ago. In this action, all the stray dogs were evacuated from the place. The place where they were living for so many years. The buildings came up and the dogs had no place to go other than to rome around. In order to give them a place, I along with a few of my friends fought for their rights and ultimately won in getting some place in basement for them.I am sure that this edition would also be interesting. I have included this in my website as well so that people can read it to fight their isolation blues.
