Editorial Reviews


"Solve a riddle, find a box, and a secret world will be yours. This guide to the age-old practices of letterboxing, questing and treasure hunting is a key to unlocking a sense of place in forest and neighborhood alike."—Orion

“This reader is already enthusiastic enough to suggest it to a local neighborhood group.”—Boston Globe

"The timeliness for the new book published by University Press of New England is that more guidelines are needed for an ever expanding diverse community audience to run and participate in quests. Those addressed by the authors include teachers, parents, historical societies, environmental organizations and others."—Connecticut Valley Spectator (NH)

“Questing is so full of great suggestions that I am motivated to act. I still haven't found a treasure box, but I've hidden one.”—New Hampshire Magazine --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Hardcover
This book is an amazing resource that teaches us a way to create learning treasure hunts for our communities. It is the first rung on the ladder of teaching our children the principles of sustainability. By developing a joyous and fun-filled method to experience the history and special attributes of the town or "place" in which you live, you are empowered to re-invest that community with an inate and intrinsic value. This book teaches a powerful antidote to the destructive and destabilizing force of the corporatization of small town America, and shows a deceptively simple and beautiful way to teach your children about resisting the urge to be assimilated and become "Anytown USA". I strongly recommend this book for anyone who has a community they love and a role in the shaping of young minds.
