Following brief snapshots of John Dewey and Kurt Hahn, the book is organized in four sections:Philosophers and Educational TheoristsNature Educators and Outdoor EducatorsPsychologists and SociologistsSchool and Program Founders.Each chapter focuses on an individual whose philosophy and practice exemplify a biographical and historical model for reaching a deeper understanding of experiential education.
