Great Place to Start When I wanted to take up backpacking I didn’t know anyone else who did the sport that I could go to for advice or teachings. This book has the info you need to get started and give you confidence to get out there and try backpacking, which has become one of my favorite pastimes!
Great Book For Beginners Are you planning a hiking trip and not sure what to bring or what to buy? Well, this is the book for you. I found a lot of great tips and good advice from safety to how to build up to long hikes. Great Book !!!
An excellent “how-to” book I bought this for my husband, who has recently taken up hiking. He loves it and in fact reads it at bedtime every night. Says it is the best book he has seen for beginners. And, not a bad price either!
