While travelling the world in order to write her award-winning book 'Wild', Jay Griffiths became increasingly aware of the huge differences in how childhood is experienced in various cultures. One central riddle, in particular, captured her imagination: why are so many children in Euro-American cultures unhappy - and why is it that children in many traditional cultures seem happier? In 'Kith', Jay Griffiths explores these questions and many more.
