Detailed Product Description
New York, 1994. 288 pp, b/w illustrations. New paperback.

Glenn Randall's book contains the usual information--how to load a backpack for the best weight distribution, how to fold a map, how to ventilate a sleeping bag--found in other backpacking how-to books, of which there are several on the market. It also takes several thoughtful side trails to discuss such matters as building wood fires in the wilderness (don't, Randall says) and disposing of one's, well, byproducts (pack them out, he advises). Randall knows the wilds and how to survive in them inside out. He is also an engaging writer, and his book belongs in every hiker's pack.

From Library Journal
Backpacking today is a totally different experience than in the past. First, there are a lot more people sharing the wilderness, and second, the equipment that backpackers use has been upgraded and refined through the use of newer, lighter materials, which makes living out of a pack much more comfortable. This book will help guide fledgling backpackers in the purchase and care of equipment such as boots, tents, sleeping bags, and packs. The book also offers advice on what to pack, what to do about food, and how to deal with problems such mosquitoes, blisters, water purification, and lightning. Ecological responsibility is emphasized. This book is user-friendly and will serve as a good beginner's reference.
