Product Details
Backpacking Essentials covers all the basics to ensure comfortable, safe trips. Topics include selecting appropriate gear for all types of weather, camping and camp craft, navigation, dangerous plants and animals, safe travel strategies, hiking etiquette (leave no trace) and wilderness first aid. It also references what to do if you get lost and includes a reusable packing checklist. This lightweight, waterproof folding guide is an excellent source of portable information and is ideal for field use by backpackers of all ages and skill levels. Made in the USA. Zoologist Jim Kavanagh has made a career out of introducing novices to plants, animals, the sciences and world cultures. In addition to creating over 500 simplified nature guides, he has also authored guides to languages, cities and outdoor skills. An avid traveler and backpacker, Kavanagh’s path has taken him around the world to many remote destinations including the upper Amazon, Africa, Australia, and the Arctic Circle (and this is just the As). He is also the author of a series of state-specific guides to common species and natural attractions and a children's book on evolution.
