When Morgan Leichter-Saxby and Suzanna Law got into their little yellow car for the first time, they knew that an adventure of a lifetime was about to begin. Their objective was to connect play advocates in communities across the USA that had reached out to them to become part of their tour through a series of workshops and events. What they didn't know was how great that adventure would be, how many wonderful people they would meet along the way, and what a huge impact the tour would have, both on communities and themselves. This book provides an overview of the 2014 Pop-Up Adventure Play tour, detailing images, interviews and anecdotes, inviting the reader along for the ride. There is also the inclusion of many resources to help you on your own journey, allowing you to build your community around play-and maybe even enabling you to start an adventure playground of your own.
