A newly published book from Patagonia, Closer to the Ground is the 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. Closer to the Ground captures the beauty and surprise of the world – and the ways it teaches us how to live – with humor, 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. Dylan Tomine, formerly a fly-fishing guide, is now a writer, conservation advocate, blueberry farmer and father, not necessarily in that order. His work has appeared in The Flyfish Journal, the Drake, Golfweek, the New York Times and numerous other publications. He lives with his family on an island in Puget Sound.

Closer To The Ground (Hardcover) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enjoyable Read! Have been enjoying this book! Goes quick for people that are on the go and definitely doesn't just apply to people married/with families (I'm in my 20's, but have been loving this book)- very down to earth and I think a lot of us can identify with the author while still learning even more about how to make our lives more sustainable each day...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great read Having recently become a parent myself, I have struggled with the idea of how to raise my children to enjoy and respect nature, in a culture that is spending more and more time engaged with computers, phones, etc. Tomine's book gives me hope that it can be done in a way that is authentic, meaningful, and fun. His stories of outdoor adventure and self-discovery are filled with humility and humor. A great read for anyone who has an appreciation for the outdoors, whether a parent or not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspiring I read this on a flight out to Seattle, then hopped the ferry out to Bainbridge. I'm generally a little leery of books that seem to be about raising kids; just not my thing, even though I'm a parent myself. Even though this book is that, sort of, it's way more too. It's a fantastic look at how we can still be successful in living lives connected to the natural world, even at the very edge of civilization. Bainbridge Island is very much that. Tomine does a superb job of capturing the salty, wet atmosphere of the place, and I found myself envying his existence, chuckling at the BLUEtarps and pallet boards, and obsessions over getting the wood in. This is no sickly sweet, uber-poetic rumination on nature -- this is the kind that comes warts and all. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Closer To The Ground It's like reading a novel by a young, sober, grounded Hemingway. My first reaction was almost sadness because at 71 years I'll probably not be able to move to Bainbridge. My second reaction was fear that as a result of this book too many people might move to Brainbridge. I read the book cover to cover without a pause. Lost in this beautiful view into an ideal family life story. Tomine is brilliant!
