Overview

Practical and up-to-date information is the cornerstone of Lightweight Camping: A Four Seasons Source Book by Michael Hatton. This book is a valuable resource for outdoor enthusiasts of all types — canoeists, backpackers, cross-country skiers, snowshoers and winter campers. Lightweight Camping covers a broad spectrum of camping activities. It includes introductory information that will guide novices on the basics of equipment selection, routefinding and paddling strokes. At the same time, it provides detailed information on topics of interest to experienced campers and leaders — such as wilderness first aid, menu planning and route selection. Lightweight Camping includes detailed chapters on clothing and equipment, from basic essentials to high-tech fabrics and gear, with a view to maximizing utility and cost-effectiveness. Also included is a step-by-step guide to map and compass use, along with chapters covering diet and nutrition, survival, and emergency care. Two chapters examine equipment, techniques and practical tips for backpacking, canoeing, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. The book concludes with an overview of twenty-five outstanding wilderness areas and routes throughout North America. This chapter will be of particular interest to experienced outdoor enthusiasts who are scouting ideas for their next wilderness challenge.
