Overview Hva villmarka lærte meg

Go exploring with Lars Monsen: Hva villmarka lærte meg tells how Lars Monsen became interested in hunting, fishing, open-air life and long expeditions in genuine wilderness.

The book starts with the story of how exciting and scary it was when nine year old Lars spent the night out alone in the woods for the first time, and how this little adventure gave him a taste for more and led to many great experiences in natural wildernesses both near and far. In this book we get to know Lars well; how he thinks and why he chooses to go quite alone in unknown territory far from people. It also tells stories about good companionship and about solitude.

This is the first book about Lars Monsen's expeditions to be written specially for young readers. The stories of his first trips are exciting and will stimulate young readers to experience the great outdoors themselves.

Øivind Berg and Lars Monsen have written this book together. By conveying Lars' joy in experiencing nature and wilderness life, it reads as an invitation to join him on an expedition. Easy to read, exciting and engaging.

Reviews Hva villmarka lærte meg

"Dette er en bok om ekte friluftsglede. Den vil fungere som en godbit for dem som allerede er i gang med sitt friluftsliv, og den kan tenne gnisten hos dem som ennå ikke har sittet ved leirbålet. Boken er sterk på å formidle det viktigste: Øyeblikkene, enkelheten, stillheten, naturens bilder og lyder."

Mette Hofsødegård, Aftenposten
