You’ll also find a thoughtful reconsideration of when to use the term “teacher” and when to use “mentor,” clarification of scientific references, updates to the Affiliates section and a full Index. The most stunning new feature is the facelift: an all-new cover design..."

Who is this Book For?
Until now, Wilderness Awareness School and its affiliates have passed on teachings about The Art of Mentoring and Coyote Teaching only through experiential workshops. Yet, from my desk at the center of the school’s office, I keep hearing the insistent pleas of countless amazing mentors out there who aren’t able to get here for a program, have students just waiting to get started, and want our blueprint for design and construction of a profound learning experience. Your cries for help have called out Coyote’s Guide.
Bottom line, you feel deeply the value of direct experience with nature in your own life and want to transmit it to others. Some of you were fortunate to grow up free to roam and hunt and fish and build tree houses in the wild places near your home with parents and mentors who encouraged you – and you want to pass on the tradition. More of you are members of the first generation that didn’t have that privilege – and you want to resurrect the tradition.
Parents, teachers, counselors, guides, and mentors, all who find this book in your hand, Jon, Evan, and I have written it for you. We want you to be confident that Coyote’s Guide can be adapted to work wherever you are, in situations as diverse as we can imagine.
