Skimming Stones and Other Ways of Being Wild is a book of simple skills that can help us to interact with nature, achieve a deeper connection with it and even step inside another dimension.

‘...there are forces deep in everyone’s subconscious that find a pure expression in the simplest of activities. This book explains why we should be taking the time to do them. It is born out of a wish to share our passion for our landscape and the contemplative, reflective pleasures and joys that were well-known to our grandparents, but which are in danger of being lost and forgotten. They will help us get back to a place where we all belong’
