(Before Children), or have no outdoor experience but want to enjoy a new sport alongside your children, Extreme Kids will take the whole family on an adventure. Learn the basics of outdoor sports, some extreme (whitewater rafting, kiteboarding, backcountry skiing), and some less so (day hiking, peak bagging, flatwater canoeing), and how to share them with your kids. The book also includes practical and philosophical reasons for family outdoor adventuring. It's never too early to hit the trail (or the river, or the vertical wall) with your kids--each section has an easier version of an extreme sport to get the family's feet wet before diving in.

Chapters cover the hows and whys of taking kids on outdoor explorations, including recommendations on equipment to keep them happy and safe.
