Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Profusely illustrated by Mike Clelland, Allen O'Bannon's Allen & Mike's Really Cool Backpackin' Book is a superbly presented guide for traveling and camping in a wilderness environment. All the relevant issues are covered including dressing and packing for the outdoors, choosing proper equipment; navigating with map and compass; setting up camp; dealing with wildlife; reading the weather; and basic backwoods hygiene. The informative text is enhanced with appendices on low-impact camping technics and an extensive gear checklist. Wether for a day-trip hike or an extended outdoors expedition, Allen & Mike's Really Cool Backpackin' Book is thoroughly "user friendly" and especially recommended for the novice camper and those new to the wilderness experience.

    I Also Recommend:

    Loved it.

    I have the companion book to this one, the Cross Country skiing book. I have read and enjoyed both. The latter was used as a textbook for a survival school I attended here in Alaska, so I had to purchase this one as well. Chock full of usefull information, illustrations are humurous yet relevant, and the material is an easy read. It will go in my backpack whenever I go hiking.
