You Took The Kids Where? Adventuring While Your Children Are Young published July, 2017.
Did you and your spouse come together because of your mutual love of outdoor adventure and the desire to discover lessons that might be learned from folks living very different lives from our own. What does it take, once children enter your world, to continue such a lifestyle?
You Took the Kids Where? presents a rare generational time span in which to evaluate the results of raising a family in an alternative environment, one which de-emphasizes the pursuit of wealth and power. Having made possible, almost from birth, wilderness experiences for their children, Trish Severin and Doug Woodward also have taken them into living situations with families in countries and cultures who live much more simply than we do in the US.
Is their family philosophy worth emulating? Decide for yourself as you read not only the words of Doug and Trish looking back, but words from their children as young adults looking forward.
