Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Unlike team sports which relegate parents to the role of chauffeur or coach, "extreme" sports let adults join their children in the emotional, mental, and physical challenges of outdoor adventuring. This book introduces the reader to more than 20 extreme (and not so extreme) outdoor sports for adventurers of all levels. Chapters cover the hows and whys of taking kids on outdoor explorations, including recommendations on equipment to keep them happy and safe. The author provides basic tips for how to do many land and water based activities. Filled with photographs of happy kids, this book targets parents.

Synopsis:

Whether youre a longtime outdoorsperson looking to get your kids involved in the activities you loved B.C. (Before Children), or have no outdoor experience but want to enjoy a new sport alongside your children, Extreme Kids will take the whole family on an adventure. Learn the basics of outdoor sports, some extreme (whitewater rafting, kiteboarding, backcountry skiing), and some less so (day hiking, peak bagging, flatwater canoeing), and how to share them with your kids. The book also includes practical and philosophical reasons for family outdoor adventuring. Its never too early to hit the trail (or the river, or the vertical wall) with your kids—each section has an easier version of an extreme sport to get the familys feet wet before diving in.
