Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For a generation, the Basic Essentials "RM" series has been as much a part of the outdoors experience as backpacks and hiking boots. Information-packed tools for the novice or handy references for the veteran, these volumes distill years of knowledge into affordable and portable books. Basic Essentials "RM" books provide all the necessary details for planning a trip or thumbing for facts in the field.

The lure of solitude on a wilderness trail is a strong one, but concerns about personal security, safety, and the groaning weight of the solo hiker's backpack keep many hikers from ever attempting a trip by themselves.
