Book Synopsis



The classic backpacker's handbook--revised and updated--providing expert guidelines for anyone who loves the outdoors.

The Wilderness Guide brings the savvy of the world's most famous and respected outdoor organization to everyone--from the sixteen million backpacking Americans to the more than 265 million people, tenderfeet and trail-hardened hikers, who visit our national parks annually. It covers:

-Selecting equipment--including discussions of the advantages and disadvantages of products such as the internal frame pack, lighter-weight boots, and freestanding tents

-The latest "leave no trace" camping techniques

-Traveling safely and sensibly--including vital information on maps, compasses, and tips on crossing difficult terrain

-Backcountry cooking, with tips on building fires and tricks for making gourmet meals

-Search-and-rescue techniques, including how to organize a self-sufficient search group and when to call in professional rescue teams

Illustrated throughout with instructional drawings and photos and featuring lists of equipment, the Wilderness Guide is a must-have for anyone planning to explore the great outdoors.
