Tales from the Wild

Co-authored by Raza H. Tehsin & Arefa Tehsin, Tales from the Wild is a collection of 12 short stories on wildlife & Nature. It is an attempt to connect older children with Nature, not by preaching and teaching, but through a medium that they like – stories. The Nature/wildlife facts are blended into tales of mystery, mythology, quest and adventure.

Climbing trees, bee stings, crushing ants and collecting butterflies made our childhood afternoons. In those initial years, through innocent plays and heartless acts, a bond was formed with nature, unbreakable for life. Today’s children, as author Richard Louv points, are suffering from Nature Deficit Disorder. Alienated from the daily interaction with Nature, especially in the cities, children are growing with a total lack of understanding of the natural world, which is hampering their all-inclusive growth. Landscape architect Robin C. Moore states, “A critical aspect of the present-day crisis in education is that children are becoming separated from daily experience of the natural world.”
