Comments from other readers:
“A wonderful life affirming book about the healing benefits of nature and activity and the realisation that material possessions are less important than love and human interaction.”
“Not something I would normally pick up, but pleased I’ve read it. Really enjoyed the humour as well as the messages in the book that the most important in life are love, laughter, exercise and nature. Despite losing everything the couple felt liberated. This book has inspired me to make sure I keep in touch with nature, family and simple pleasures.”
