Cleanly written advice and perspective for backpackers
If you're looking for a comprehensive camping/hiking gear rundown, this is not the book you. If you're looking for trail-tested advice on backpacking high mileage days or long distance backpacking, this is the book you want to read. Yes, there are some examples of gear, but only what the author uses, and even then they are presented to support a theme or lesson. The writing is clear, fairly concise, and never over-opinionated. Without preaching, Skurka advocates "lighter and less" through education and example. Given his extensive (and impressive) high mileaage backpacking resume, it's hard to discount Skurka's advice. This is a book I'll be re-read dozens of times, and in my opinion is well worth its modest eBook cost.
