I got this book from the library and I am definatley going to buy a copy to add to my collection. A great book from which to draw inspiration when you can't make it out into the field. A good mix of essays covering philosophy, humor, traditional gear,and skills.
Great little stories about camping equipment and his adventures with them. Perhaps a bit too nostolgic, but I like that.
