manual lists "special techniques for hiking, camping, paddling,
mountain bikes.and all outdoor recreation in all geographic regions
of North America".
describes camping techniques that minimize pollution and destruction
of the wilderness. These concepts are not new but Mr Harmon goes
into detail of the negative impact careless camping causes and offers
solutions on how to ethically interact with the wilderness without
harming it. Some of these ideas may be novel even for expierenced
campers and hikers. I would recommend this book for anyone planning
excursions to the Great Outdoors.
