Peter Brown Hoffmeister may not be a philosopher but his heart is all in.
The South Eugene High School teacher and co-director of the school’s Integrated Outdoor and Outdoor Student Leadership programs has just published “Let Them Be Eaten By Bears: A Fearless Guide to Taking Our Kids into the Great Outdoors.”
This book is a how-to, a call to action and a lot of fun.
His chapter headings — “Get Out of Your Comfort Zone,” “Chasing Squirrels: Let the Kids Lead,” “God Made Dirt and Dirt Don’t Hurt” — tell the tale.
Hoffmeister will make you a believer. From climbing neighborhood trees with your kids to taking at-risk teens into the wild, getting outside is not just important but essential.
Stay tuned for Hoffmeister’s debut novel, “Graphic the Valley,” due out in July.
