Planning for a backpacking trip and knowing tips on cooking, shelter, weather, and dealing with insect bites and blisters is a good idea. That's where the Peregrine Backpacker's Everyday Wisdom book comes in. Sure, you could strike out into the wilderness virtually naked with little to eat and no shelter, but we usually end up hearing about those folks on the news, and it's not always a happy ending. The Backpacker's Everyday Wisdom book has chapters on backpacking basics, what you need to know before you go, planning meals that'll fuel your hikes, getting prepped for trail travel, making a comfortable home in the woods, cooking, weather tips, and information about dealing with cuts and bites.


Find amazing solutions to your most obscure outdoor problems with these tips gleaned from one of the most popular columns in Backpacker Magazine. Covers backpacking basics, food as fuel, on the trail, backcountry cooking, weather, health, water safety, field repairs and much more. Author Berger, Karen; Paperback, 207 pages, black and white photographs accompany the text.
