Editorial Reviews


"A clear and practical guide to connecting with nature. It is well-written, comprehensive and refreshingly to the point." - Tristan Gooley, natural navigator, bestselling author of The Walker's Guide to Outdoor Clues and Signs

"I finished Connecting with Life by Martin Summer and honestly I have NEVER felt so inspired by a book in my entire life." - Veronica Portillo

"This is the perfect book for a city person like me. I do not want to live in the woods or get lost in nature. That is not my idea of fun, but this book does wonders to help one connect with nature in simple ways." - Maggie Dobschuetz

"I loved how accessible this book is. It is anything but dry. The author's humor and passion for nature absolutely shine through on every page." - Michelle Brosius

"Martin Summer presents a fresh and deeper look how mindfully connecting with nature can make a difference in our lives and the world." - Susan Williams

"If you are someone who is on the path of wellness and sustainability of the Earth, you really must read this book. It is a light-hearted easy read that brings a lot of thought to living an urban lifestyle while trying to stay connected to the Earth." - Kelli Pagel

"I loved it! Both urban and natural explorations are covered in a logical informative manner that excited my imagination." - Jan Tangen

"This nicely organized book may provide that little shove or inspiration you need to turn off your televisions and computers and make a little time to get your hands dirty digging in your garden, or to tune in to the songbirds' song or to take a hike in the woods." - Nancy Scott

"This book was written for people like me - who love or even just might like nature a bit but also live in a city." - Erin Childs

From the Author

Natural environment is our natural human habitat. We might no longer want to live without the modern conveniences (understandably so), but periodically returning to our roots can provide life-changing experiences worth so much more than they cost.

In wild nature we can forget about the fast pace of our modern lives, the de-mands on our time, and the responsibilities we bear on our shoulders. We can gain perspective on how insignificant we are in the grand scheme of things. While that may sound depressing, remember it's actually a good thing. We gain humility and appreciation of life when we realize our smallness. We can heal our psychological traumas as we get away from it all and make our lives simple again. We can benefit from this effect while going on a multi-day hike. We can recover by spending a night in a spartan cabin in the woods. Exploring the open seas on a sailboat can change us, too. So can enjoying the ocean on a stand-up paddle board, or sitting in an inspiring surrounding taking in the views.

Nature is a precious gift we might not fully appreciate as we spend most of our days in air-conditioned buildings. So, let's make a conscious effort to expose ourselves to it in doses both small and large. In this book, I explore the "why" and "how."
