Adventure Lore Press Trail Life - Ray Jardine's Lightweight Backpacking - 25 000 Miles of Trail Tested Know How -
This could be the most important book about backpacking that you will ever read. There are a few names that have revolutionized the sport of backpacking, Ed Garvey, Colin Fletcher, Harvey Manning and of course the Master of lightweight backpacking Ray Jardine. Ray's book 'Beyond Backpacking' revolutionized long distance backpacking by showing hikers how to cut the weight out and exploding myths about heavy equipment. Much of the lightweight backpacking equipment and styles today were inspired by Ray and his groundbreaking book. Now long out of print Ray and his erstwhile hiking partner and wife Jenny have revised and updated that classic book with Trail Life. Trail Life is chock full of lightweight hiking ideas that will further revolutionize the sport. Written in a kinder, gentler style, Trail Life will be the new standard reference book for the sport of backpacking. If you plan to hike the AT, PCT, CDT or ADT not buying this book would be just silly. And if you have ever thought your pack weighed too much on a week long hike well then this book can help you too.

"THE" Hiking Book to Get.

Normally if I learn just one new thing from a book I considered it worth getting but sadly in a way that's how it usually goes. I just learn one new thing. I just got this book from Campmor today and have only read a little of it and have already learned several new things. This is the hiking book to get!

Invaluable!

I wish I'd had this book thirty years ago, I would have lightened my load a long time ago.
