This book was so great and I read it in one sitting! First of all the cover is super cool and is made of a sort of flexible silicone or something- great to carry with you when you're outside without ruining the book. The book covered information on being outside, staying alive, mountain activities, water activities, camping, and snow activities. There were a lot of lists in it which I also loved such as reading lists and packing lists for hiking, etc. This is a super great book and incredibly helpful for newbies!
