Chapters 21-23

Chapter 21 was mainly about spiritual meaning of nature. Louv talks about many different religions and their thoughts of the spiritual necessity of nature. He interviews a lot of people to get their views on the nature-deficit disorder. Louv also talks about God and Mother Nature.

Chapter 22 was about the huge fire in San Diego in 2003 and the peoples movement to get those acres of land back, and houses that were burnt down. He also talks about “healing the broken bond between children and nature, being overwhelming and an impossible  task.” He then goes on about the tobacco industry. He says “the recycling and anti-smoking campaigns are perhaps the best example of how social and political pressure can work hand in hand to effect societal change in just one generation”(310).  He continues to talk about the different groups that are taking a stance to change the disorder.”Such research could show that nature not only promotes healthier childhood development, but does it more effectively than the methods commonly used in the place of nature”(312).

Chapter 23 was basically Louv saying that his greatest memories with his kids have been while they were together in nature, and he hoped his kids felt the same. “We have such a brief opportunity to pass on to our children our love for this Earth, and to tell our stories. These are the moments when the world is made whole”(316).
