Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Horses, Hitches, and Rocky Trails is the most complete presentation available of the method of packing for the wilderness. The full treatment is amplified by the brilliant drawings by Joe Back, a most-able artist, as well as a man who knows what he is talking about from personal experience. Black includes step-by-step instructions on not only how to prepare for heading out into the wilderness, but also how to cope with the elements.

 Some of the lessons taught in this book include:

  • Packing horses
  • Equipment
  • Balancing the load
  • Making camp
  • Getting along in the wilderness
  • Final ties
  • And many more!
Horses, Hitches, and Rocky Trails is for both the amateur just learning how to prepare for the wilderness and the professional packer looking for some new tips. With wonderful illustrations, Joe Back makes it easy to be prepared and safe on your travels. So whether this is your first time out or youre a seasoned veteran, make sure that Horses, Hitches, and Rocky Trails is included with the rest of your packed equipment.

Synopsis:

Be better equipped for what the outdoors has to offer.

About the Author

Joe Back was born in Ohio in 1899 and moved to Wyoming when he was a teenager. He served as machine gun instructor during World War I and then took up trade as a cowboy, guide, and packer. While art education changed his life and although he went back to packing and guiding, he also became nationally known as a sculptor. Joe Back died on September 7, 1986, at the age of eight-seven.
