Detailed Product Description
Pittsburgh, self published, 1977, revised 2nd edition. 337pp, b/w illustrations, maps. Spiral bound softcover. Near Fine.

Dr. Jirak founded the Explorers Club of Pittsburgh, and the Angeda Kimonhon School of Exploratory Sciences in 1971. This handbook contains chapters on climbing techniques, equipment and locations in the US among other outdoor skills.  The AKs taught skills such as rock and mountain climbing, parachuting, skin diving, living off the land, compass marching, river rafting, caving, winter camping and skiing. 

Originally, the AK handbook was designed for AK members and friends. Two years after publication, the original printing of 600 copies had been sold. This second edition represents a major revision with changes to organization of information, use of activity divisions and with updated book lists and suggestions.
