An information-packed tool for the novice or handy reference for the veteran. Distills years of knowledge in an affordable and portable book.

This new edition is packed with essential information for the camping novice, as well as a quick refresher for the veteran, with an emphasis on the all-important skills. Readers will discover how to select and use their camping gear effectively; build a fire quickly and efficiently, even in wet weather; use the right cutting tools; cook quick and tasty meals in the outdoors; rig a snug camp with four basic knots and hitches; and use a map and compass to master the basics of backcountry navigation. With ample illustrations, it covers camping gear, how to select it and how to use it, including: how to measure a sleeping bag, what kinds of boots to look for, what kinds of packs to use, and what kind of ax is handy. Easy-to-use and portable, this book should be in every backpack.
