This was a very interesting book. I strongly agree that people no longer seem to appreciate nature the way previous generations and that politics often gets in the way of perfectly good groups.I found the idea of spreading the population out more thinly to be very interesting. I had recently heard somewhere that one of the Spanish conquistadores who first explored the valley where my hometown lies now wrote that the valley could probably handle one hundred thousand people. This valley is approaching one million. By spreading the population more thinly, it would certainly reduce some of the difficulties that a large consumerist population entails.I also found the concept of unorganized play being too underscored to be confusing. I guess I was one of the few kids who did play outside. I never knew I was unusual until I found that most kids played video games unless they were chased out by their parents. I can remember playing games in the street with my best friend, transforming a plain street into a dojo full of ninjas or a field of enemies. When we would go up into the mountains, my dad banned games, so we made up our own game play.Overall, this book explains that if I do let my kids play outside, they will possibly have less pent up energy and have much more enjoyment of nature than their video gaming counterparts. It also told me how zoning has just gotten insane with respect to tree houses and forts out in the middle of ditches.
