This book is awesome. It is easy to read and follow with well defined chapters and great photos. For someone who is just getting into backpacking this book is a must have. It goes over just about everything you need to know about backpacking in a concise and entertaining manner from the physical technicalities of hiking to gear- what to wear, how to wear it, what to bring, how to pack it as well as going into choosing the right kinds of gear to suit your specific needs. Food, insects and wildlife, and finding your way 'using map and compass' is also covered. It is incredibly informative without becoming complicated and tedious to read. I highly recommend this book... read it before your adventure begins and take it along to use as a guide along the way!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A perfect start!
I have never backpacked, and I was flirting with the idea. This book was so insightful and extremely entertaining, it excited me so much about backpacking that I am now ready to get my own gear and hit the trails! Very inspirational!Was this review helpful?
