Hiking and Backpacking: A Complete Guide

Author: 
Berger, Karen
Year Published: 
1995

"One of the more recent books, this has been written by a woman who has hiked the entire Continental Divide Trail and it is generously laced with color photos and sidebars providing tips and quotes. Highly recommended!

Karen Berger's Hiking and Backpackng: A Complete Guide is the best guide I have seen to the mechanics of the past-time. In 200 or so concise, easy-to-read pages, Berger covers everything from boots to back-country navigation, from hints on quick, easy, and inexpensive trail meals to sensible advice on hiking with your loved one or your kids. Berger takes a calm, unintimidating approach to hiking... she remembers what it feels like to have stiff new boots, blisters, and an ill-fitting pack.... Women are likely to appreciate her sensitivity to a range of issues and practical questions often ignored by male guidebook writers."
