Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As our wildlands become more encroached upon by humans, a uniform environmental ethic becomes increasingly more important. Leaving no trace and treading softly are no longer cute terms for practicing minimum impact in wilderness usage; they become rules by which to live. Distinguish between universal considerations and special rules of minimum impact camping. Discover acceptable fire-making principles. Understand the consequences of wilderness use. Dispose of human waste appropriately in a variety of fragile soils. Consider the impact of noise pollution. Develop good habits and teach them to others.

Synopsis:

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