Backpacker The National Parks Coast to Coast: 100 Best Hikes

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A great resource for 100 of the most iconic hikes in our National Parks. Excellent skills sections. Beta on each hike from finding the trailhead to GPS coordinates. With the celebration of the 100th anniversary of our National Parks this year, it is timely to see the publication of the hiking guide The National Parks Coast to Coast, 100 Best Hikes. I was quite intrigued to see what hikes would be considered 100 of the best hikes of our National Parks. This nicely organized book starts with a two-page… Full review

Hiking North Carolina

rated 4 of 5 stars If you are hiking in North Carolina and want to visit as many trails as possible, than this is the book for you. It covers a lot of the trails available in detail.

I had 3 more planned but didn’t have enough time in NC to complete them all. The book provides a good level of detail on all of the locations… Full review

Ultralight Backpackin' Tips

rated 2 of 5 stars The good/beneficial advice presented in this book simply cannot make up for the REALLY BAD opinions that the author brings forth as part of Ultralight (UL) backpacking. <<I borrowed it = Library book>> Opinions are like armpits--Everyone has a couple and some of them stink. The problem is when someone with stinky opinions gets himself published, many begin to accept those opinions as fact. Mike Clelland has had the good fortune of finding a publisher looking to cash in on the UL craze. Full review

Outdoor Knots: The Knots You Need to Know

rated 4 of 5 stars Good book for those wanting to learn the basics and a little more. I really dig this book. It's a great intro book to knots. Even set up for those needing to refresh or just step up from knowing only a handful. This knowledge is great to have for any outdoorsman. Full review

Cooking in the Outdoors

rated 4 of 5 stars Not so much a recipe book but rather a methods and skills focus. I have a number of outdoors oriented cooking guides. Some are mostly recipe books while some are more general and skill oriented. This book is very much skill oriented and geared towards how to dehydrate your own trail foods and how to find and utilize grocery store supplies suitable for backcountry use.  I really like Cliff's writing style, although I can see how some would find it to be a tad bit goofy. In fact I bought a copy… Full review
