Getting kids off the couch — and into the outdoors — is something Eugene Buchanan, former editor-in-chief of Paddler magazine and founder of Paddling Life, believes strongly in. To help parents get their kids outside, Buchanan wrote “Outdoor Parents, Outdoor Kids,” a 300-page tome to hiking, camping, swimming, paddling, snow sports, biking, fishing, and virtually any other outdoor activity a family can do.

Through a mix of anecdotes and lessons learned, he brings real experience to the page. A Men’s Journal editor recently wrote “Buchanan isn’t the smug expert who makes you feel like an idot, but a friend who’s been there.”

Buchanan is an experienced writer, avid outdoorsman and the father of two girls. He touts the book as a set of training wheels for first-time parents or parents inexperienced in the outdoors. Another area covers tips for the outdoor veteran parents out there.

The book will be available in February for $20. You can pre-order the book here: http://outdoorkidsbook.com
