A Clever and Well Written Book Sept. 6 2007
By Glenn D. Bosio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The author of this book clearly writes from experience and the topics covered are well researched. Everything from responding to a bear who is sharing your trail to storing toilet paper - securely. My wife and I both enjoyed the author's sense of humor and his ability to make a thousand little things important elements to enhancing our experience (and expectations) of backpacking.

I would highly recommend this fun and thorough book to anyone interested in connecting with the outdoors.

Black and white photos compliment first-person insights into the systems and approaches that have made Brian Beffort's backpacking experiences noteworthy and fun. Any backpacker - and any general-interest lending collection catering to campers and hikers - needs this.
Good basic book July 5 2014
By C. Liebeck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I like this book well enough, but it's geared more for the beginning backpacker. The book is well-rounded and touches on many different topics pertaining to backpacking. I recommend it for someone who is considering getting started in backpacking or has only been backpacking a few times.
More basic than I expected March 11 2014
By gregory s buchler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's a fine book, and I am learning things from it. I guess I was, perhaps unreasonably, expecting to learn more tips and tricks. I have backpacked 3 times and already read quite a bit, and learned from friends. Still, I am 2/3 done w/the book and I think it's worth my time to finish reading it. The section on knots was a good reminder that I need to relearn how to tie knots.
