Title

Which is true: Thoreau's declaration "In wildness is the preservation of the world," or "In civilization is the preservation of the wild,"? The author built his home in the forest and lived there 10 times as long as Thoreau lived at Walden Pond. This book is his answer. 

"An absorbing, unflinching, and surprisingly comic account of how one man€”a devoted father-withdrew from the world and gradually returned. It's as wise and instructive as it is compelling." Novelist Reynolds Price on Coming Out of the Woods.

€œUnlike most environmental books being written today, Coming Out Of The Woods doesn€™t try to scare the hell out of anybody, or smother with weighty facts, figures and insights.  Instead, Kaufman entertains by telling a tale full of self-deprecating humor and common-sense insight.€
