Boston: Beacon Press, 2012. Octavo, dustwrapper, black and white photographs.
Painfully aware of the ecological changes being brought on by global warming, Lanza sets out to show his children the wonders of North America before they have changed forever. A longtime backpacker, climber, and skier, Michael Lanza takes his children on an ambitious journey to see as many climate-threatened wild places in North America as he can fit into a year. Through these poignant and humorous adventures, Lanza shares the beauty of each place and shows how his children connect with nature when given "unscripted" time. Ultimately, he writes, this is more their story than his, for whatever comes of our changing world, they are the ones who will live in it. Also available in paperback [stock id 34784].
