"Outdoor-adventure activities combine wisdom and fun in this practical guide to the wild. The instructions are remarkably clear, and black-and-white illustrations add visual interest, levity, and clarity when needed. Fascinating enough to read cover to cover without setting foot outside, it will also be a reliable companion on camping and hiking trips to augment hours of outdoor exploring. This in-depth guide offers plenty to learn and do for adventurers of all skill and experience levels."—Kirkus, starred review
