he deeply personal story of a father learning to share his love of nature with his children, not through the indoor lens of words or pictures, but directly, palpably, by exploring the natural world as they forage, cook and eat from the woods and sea.
This compelling, masterfully written tale follows Dylan Tomine and his family through four seasons as they hunt chanterelles, fish for salmon, dig clams and gather at the kitchen table, mouths watering, to enjoy the fruits of their labour. Closer to the Ground captures the beauty and surprise of the natural world — and the ways it teaches us how to live — with humour, gratitude and a nose for adventure as keen as a child’s. It is a book filled with weather, natural history and many delicious meals.
