This book review written by Chris Loynes focuses on two books: "John Dewey and education outdoors: making sense of the ‘educational situation’ through more than a century of progressive reforms" by John Quay and Jayson Seaman (Sense Publishing, 2013) and "Beyond learning by doing: theoretical currents in experiential education" by Jay W. Roberts (Routledge, 2012).

It was a pleasure to read two excellently written and thought-provoking books that apply educational theory and philosophy to support a deeper understanding of outdoor education or, as both books point out, the many forms of outdoor educations. These books offer a valuable lens into and a critique of education as practiced in western societies and, increasingly, further afield.
