A practical and inspirational companion for the outdoor enthusiast

Campers can count on a lifetime of inspiration and instruction from this compilation of classic wilderness poetry, short prose, and essential outdoor survival information. Classics such as "The Cremation of Sam McGee," "The Gettysburg Address," and "Paul Revere's Ride" provide a thought-provoking complement to superb short works by Jack London and excerpts from Ernest Shackleton's Antarctic saga. Outdoor enthusiasts will further benefit from a host of wilderness survival tips, including information on avoiding avalanches, tying different kinds of knots, confronting bears and mountain lions, navigating using the sun and stars, and collecting water in an emergency. Full star maps and Leave No Trace camping guidelines are also included.
