Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
These two attractive "visual guides" depict and describe what you need to participate in these sports, from equipment to techniques. In Backpacking & Hiking, Berger, a hiking instructor and author, covers choosing a destination, clothing and equipment, organizing a hike, on the trail (including using maps and GPS), camping, overcoming challenges such as finding water and surviving natural disasters, and first aid. The detailed information on such subjects as how to stretch, how to fit boots and take care of your feet, and packing a backpack will benefit those new to hiking, and even experienced hiker and campers will appreciate her practical advice. Resources listed at the end include hiking organizations and a directory of trails. In Golf, professional golf authors and journalists describe the game and its equipment, the basics and how to play, the rules of golf, golf tournaments, and golf courses of the world. Golfers and would-be golfers will appreciate the illustrated tips and practice exercises as well as the layouts and photos of famous courses. Beautiful, carefully labeled full-color photographs highlight both volumes. For public libraries and larger school libraries. (Eyewitness Companions series).
