Good + Bad

“[Hoffmeister] makes it sound so fun!  His relatable writing and first-person stories will convince you to hop in puddles, gaze at clouds, and share the wonders of nature with your children.” 


— Parents Magazine

“This book is a how-to, a call to action and a lot of fun…Hoffmeister will make you a believer.”


— The Register Guard

“In an age where humans desperately need to get out in nature again, Hoffmeister’s practical guidance is a bridge to get us over the gap of our fears and not-knowing. They say ‘the knowing is in the doing’ – Hoffmeister clearly has the knowing, and his sharing of it will help you into your own doing.”


— Evan McGown, co-author of Coyote’s Guide to Connecting with Nature
