“This timely, significant work carries a far-reaching message for families and the planet.”—Publishers Weekly “In a time when the connection between humans and the rest of nature is most vulnerable, Scott offers parents and teachers a book of encouragement and knowledge, and to children, the priceless gift of wonder.”—Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods and The Nature Principle The average North American child now spends about seven hours a day staring at screens and mere minutes engaged in unstructured play outdoors. Yet recent research indicates that experiences in nature are essential for healthy growth. Regular exposure to nature can help relieve stress, depression, and attention deficits. It can reduce bullying, combat obesity, and boost academic scores. Most critical of all, abundant time in natural settings seems to yield long-term benefits in kids’ cognitive, emotional, and social development. How to Raise a Wild Child is a timely and engaging antidote, offering teachers, parents, and other caregivers the necessary tools to engender a meaningful, lasting connection between children and the natural world. “With wisdom, intellect, and empathy, [Sampson] provides us with a bounty of simple yet profound ways we can enter this natural world, oftentimes starting in our very own backyards.”—Lili Taylor, actor, mom, and board member of the American Birding Association “[Sampson] makes a cogent case for the importance of cultivating a ‘nature connection’ in children and offers thoughtful guidance on how to do so amid today's pressures of hectic, high-tech, increasingly urbanized life.”—Scientific American MIND

The Nature of Animal Healing is a groundbreaking, inspirational contribution to animal care. Dr. Martin Goldstein, one of the most successful and best-known holistic veterinarians in the country, offers here, for the first time, invaluable insights into how to give our pets a healthy, happy, and long life. Dr. Goldstein--a graduate of the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine who runs a renowned clinic in South Salem, New York--begins by explaining his approach to alternative treatment: what it is, how it works, and why it's especially important that animals be treated holistically. Holistic pet care essentially revolves around the notion that the best way to cure an animal who is ill is to help the animal cure itself. We are not the true healers of our pets--they are. By treating the root of the problem instead of its symptoms, holistic medicine enables our pets to regain and maintain their own health. In this comprehensive and accessible book, Dr. Goldstein not only shares his philosophy of how animals should--must--be treated, but also shows us exactly what to do. With moving and often entertaining examples from his years of practice, he offers prescriptive advice for the pet lover of every stripe: why we shouldn't feed our animals commercial pet food; why vaccines can actually do more harm than good; how acupuncture and homeopathic medicine can be used to help our pets; why pets need to experience a "healing crisis" in order to get well; and much, much more. In his practice, Dr. Goldstein has had extraordinary success treating cancer and leukemia. Here, he begins to decipher the riddle of those killer diseases and shows us how best to treat them, as well as how to prevent them from occurring. Included is the exhaustive "Alphabet of Ailments," a list that tackles common afflictions one by one--the most useful guide ever published in a book on animal care. Dr. Goldstein also turns to the spiritual realm, addressing how the emotional bonds we form with our animals have the power to provoke and cure disease. In his smart, helpful, and comforting style, he tells us how to deal with the inevitable death of a pet--both physically and psychologically. Finally, there is an indispensable source guide: a complete listing of pet health-care centers, doctors, and products. So wherever you live, you will be able to act on the advice and recommendations you are sure to take to heart. The Nature of Animal Healing is a revolutionary guide that no pet owner should be without. From the Hardcover edition.

Southern Africa is home to a remarkably diverse and rich reptile fauna, which is presented in this book in a lively and accessible way. A Guide to the Reptiles of Southern Africa introduces the 517 species currently described in the region and presents interesting insight on reptile identification and diversity, distribution patterns, and biology and behaviour. It also offers tips on finding and observing reptiles, as well as unravelling the facts and fallacies of snakebite. Southern African reptiles fall into three main groups (orders): snakes and lizards, crocodiles and shelled reptiles, and each group comprises in turn a number of related families and sub-groups, which form the basic structure of the book. The reptiles are discussed within their relevant groups according to appearance, biology, reproduction, distribution and conservation status. Informative panels with simple icons provide key information on distribution, typical habitat and period of activity, and a wealth of full-colour photographs brings the subject matter vividly to life.

Que peut bien faire un chien dans une chambre d'hôpital ? Pourquoi fait-on monter un enfant handicapé à cheval ? Qu'est-ce que la thérapie assistée par l'animal ? Depuis plusieurs années, certains espaces de soin se peuplent d'animaux, qui y sont mobilisés comme supports affectifs, instruments de prise en charge ou d'accompagnement, médiateurs... Le développement de ces formes de soin éclaire les évolutions récentes des rapports entre humains et animaux dans les sociétés occidentales. Dans ces pratiques, l'animal est en effet considéré comme une personne et, à ce titre, il fait l'objet d'une grande bienveillance. Le soin avec animal témoigne ainsi des nouvelles modalités relationnelles que beaucoup souhaitent aujourd'hui partager avec certains animaux. En se mettant au service d'un projet humaniste (améliorer la santé humaine), le soin par le contact animalier rend ces types de relations socialement légitimes. Pourtant, il n'est pas simple de revaloriser ainsi l'attachement aux animaux. Convoquant les apports de la sociologie pragmatique et de l'anthropologie symétrique, ce livre propose une exploration des univers sociaux qui gravitent autour de ces activités. Il montre comment s'est construite une connaissance scientifique sur les interactions avec l'animal à but thérapeutique ; il décrit les réseaux d'acteurs (vétérinaires, militants, industriels de l'alimentation pour animaux de compagnie, journalistes, médecins, infirmières, etc.) qui ont fait émerger ces savoirs et ces pratiques ; il raconte les séances de soin et les pratiques in situ, par une approche ethnographique. Au terme de ce parcours, on pourra mesurer l'énergie qu'il faut déployer pour faire évoluer les rôles traditionnellement attribués aux animaux. À la croisée de la sociologie des sciences, de la sociologie de la santé, des professions, et des théories du care, l'auteur met en œuvre une sociologie non réductionniste des relations humains/animaux.
