Best, most comprehensive "how-to" camping book in print.

Why buy a library of books to learn how to get out of doors? This wise and funny book with the drab title covers all aspects of backpacking, camping, cycling, canoeing for beginners and experts. The recipes are so much better than any of the other so-called "outdoor cooking" books that you'll jettison the others with the weekly garbage and revel in such glorious challenges as this: "Baking a chocolate cake while backpacking is like sex on Wednesday afternoon: gratuitous but lots of fun." The chapter on the Internet is the first of its kind anywhere for outdoor types, and does it all in plain English. No cyberbabble here. Star-gazing, equipment, and fishing guides, resources and checklists, and, ta-da!, TEAR-OUT sections (recipes and checklists) so you can actually burn this book and have it too! These guys can write AND hike, cook AND eat, get lost AND found, and even teach you how to lie in a hammock! (It's an art: you could look it up!) The authors are experts but never make you feel like a klutz. You end up wishing they'd take you along, and that's the mark of a terrific book.
