12 Jan 2009 – from Carrie’s bags of books for BookCrossing

This had been on my wishlist for four years – so I grabbed it to read before releasing it!

An interesting read – at times it strayed into the academic language of the PhD which it did start out life as, but mainly pretty accessible.  A study of "wild children", it took an example of a feral child from history per chapter and looked at the child, the people around the child and what lessons we can draw. A clear-eyed but clearly fascinated author and probably an important addition to the literature on the subject.

Now available on BookCrossing.
