The contents of this book grew out of a three-day symposium, “Nature’s Grace: America’s Veterans and the Healing Power of Nature,” held on the campus of the University of Utah, November 13, 14, and 15, 2019. Attendees included university social scientists and their students; nature-based recreation service providers; representatives of various philanthropic, conservation, and governmental organizations; and a variety of health care professionals, including recreation therapists, rehabilitation counselors, social workers, nurses, clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, and an orthopedic surgeon.

The participants were united by their commitment to better serving Armed Forces personnel, veterans, and their families through health-promoting outdoor recreation activities. In addition to containing the symposium’s proceedings, the book includes complementary reading that puts a personal touch on the challenges facing our military family. This work is intended to bring the costs of war home to readers who otherwise might be distanced from its devastating effects. If, after reflecting on the content, readers are moved to come to the aid of our military family, the time and effort put into the writing will have been well worth our while. To that end, we invite readers to join us in paying our collective debt to those who have sacrificed so much in defense of our country.
