Shouting At The Sky
Troubled Teens and the Promise of the Wild
by Gary Ferguson

      There are many wilderness therapy programs available for at-risk or troubled teens. Some of the programs are very good and others are not good at all. I worked for both the good and the bad in the late 1980's and early 1990's. From my experience in the field I can tell you that author Gary Ferguson has put together an excellent portrayal of what the kids go through in wilderness therapy.

      Ferguson doesn't paint an all rosy picture of wilderness therapy, or claim that it works for every kid. What he does do is track the lives of a group of kids before, during, and after their experience at Aspen Achievement Acadamy in southern Utah, telling it exactly like it is. This book is a "must read" if you are considering sending a child to a wilderness therapy program... or working in one. Otherwise, it is still an excellent, entertaining and thought-provoking read that will help you to understand some of the situations and challanges so many kids face in the world today. Copyright 1999. 249 pages. Hardcover.
