By Ken C Ogilvie

Driven by those who believe that a traditional academic approach to education is both too narrow and ignores important aspects of the whole person, the history of outdoor learning is here fleshed out to explore these and the many other factors influencing its evolution. 

Large format. About 880 pages. 978-1-905541-84-3.

Read a review by Geoff Cooper, as published in Horizons 61, here.


By exploring both the millennia long history of man’s relationship with the natural environment, and the more recent changes in approaches to education and personal development, this extensively researched book:
● establishes clear foundations for a deeper understanding of the roots of outdoor learning
● traces – and places in context – many of the individuals and movements that played important roles in its growth and diversity
● demonstrates the timeless need for nature to play a part in every child and young person’s development
● supports the case for early connection with nature in each child’s life, and an on-going healthy and environmentally sustainable life style for all ages.

While notable biographies and accounts of particular outdoor learning institutions already exist, this is the first single volume to address all aspects and sectors of the movement. It will be a foundation for future generations as they take outdoor learning on the next steps in its journey.
