Let Them Be Eaten By Bears

Here’s the Publishers’ Marketplace sale announcement for my new book with Perigee (Penguin), expected to come out in the spring of 2013:

“Veteran rafting, climbing, and orienteering guide and co-founder of Integrated Outdoor Program Peter Hoffmeister’s LET THEM BE EATEN BY BEARS: A Fearless Guide to Taking Young People Into the Outdoors, a manifesto-meets-handbook about why kids need nature in their lives, how to begin and continue going on adventures with them, and how to enjoy the process along the way, to Marian Lizzi at Perigee, at auction, by Adriann Ranta at Wolf Literary Services (World).”

  1. Dear Peter, I’m an italian journalist and I’m reading your “Let them…”. I found it very interesting and I’d like to make you a brief interview. My english is not so good and so I’d prefer to write you 4 or 5 questions and send them by email. Can you give me one? Thank you. Simone Mazzata


  2. Dear Mr. Hoffmeister:
    I am writing you from Kalamazoo, Michigan. I work for Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan and every year we put together an event called Girl Developers Summit. The purpose of this event is to provide adults with information on current girl issues. We collaborate with local community agencies and organizations that serve girls ages birth-18 to identify emerging girl issues. We also created this event as a way for the council to extend its educational opportunities to parents, staff of youth agencies, potential mentors and volunteers in the community.
    Currently, all of our staff (120 of us) have been participating in a Book Club in a monthly basis… and guess which book did we finish reading?? Yes, “Let Them Be Eaten by Bears”! Our mission this year will be to get all of our Girl Scouts in the out-of-doors. Additionally, we have gifted your book to our highest-ranked volunteers (or unpaid staff). We will be offering workshops related to your book in upcoming training retreats at our camps for all of our adults.
    I have so much more to tell you… we are using all these book club presentations that we are doing as training enrichments for our volunteers. I’d love to send you some of the work we have been doing.
    Long story short, we were wondering if you would like to join us for our event and possibly be our keynote speaker. Our event is scheduled to take place on March 14, 2015, and we’re tentatively going to do it in Lansing (for now).
    Looking forward to hearing back from you! ~Mariela
