How to Shit in the Woods, 3rd Edition: An Environmentally Sound Approach to a Lost Artby Kathleen Meyer
Synopses & Reviews
The third edition of this bestselling and groundbreaking book on eco-friendly outdoor elimination options is fully revised and includes a new preface by the author.
Beloved by hikers, campers, backpackers, and outdoor enthusiasts, How to Shit in the Woods is the backcountry bible for ecofriendly defecation techniques and environmentally sound waste management. A by-product (if you will) is Meyer’s delightfully shameless discussion of a once-secretive activity and the promotion of its colorful vocabulary. The third edition examines the impact of too much crap (organic and otherwise) on our evershrinking wide-open spaces and offers the latest innovative technology (some low-tech, some very high-tech) designed to help our wild places survive.
