When I think about a fun day from my childhood, I think about curling up with a good book.
I’m the first to admit that I’m not really the outdoorsy type. Then again, I never had to be. Life in other parts of the United States and around the world puts adults and children in places where interacting with the natural world is essential, and even part of everyday fun. It just so happens that the farther you get away from cities and suburbs, the more likely you are to find yourself face to face with some pretty gnarly creatures.
