Outdoor Recreation: Enrichment for a Lifetime looks at outdoor pursuits first as a sub-phenomenon of the larger recreation and leisure phenomenon, but with an added touch, that of the natural element, with its psychological influence and social significance.

This book provides two views of nature: The first is based on the experiences and values of the original inhabitants of the New World. The second is based on the values of Western society transplanted into the New World after discovery and colonization. It also describes federal, state, local, and private resources. Further, this book examines the management of outdoor resources as well as outdoor education and activities.  

The authors have taught at the higher education level. They have also served professional organizations such as NOLS and the American Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance.
