about

When it was first published in 1998, The Backpacker''s Field Manual set the standard for comprehensive backpacking books. Now exhaustively updated to offer a more complete view of backpacking today, it covers the latest developments in gear—such as Global Positioning Systems and ultralight hiking equipment—first aid, and Leave No Trace comping, and includes a chapter devoted to outdoor leadership resources and basics. Beginners and experienced hikers alike will find this book indispensable for trip planning strategies and also as a quick reference on the trail for:

BACKCOUNTRY SKILLS—how to forecast the weather, identify trees, bear-proof your campsite, wrap an injured ankle, and more--illustrated with more than 100 line drawings.

TRICKS OF THE TRAIL—time-tested practical lessons learned along the way

GOING ULTRALIGHT—downsizing suggestions for those who want to lighten up

Every traveler knows that space in a backpack is limited, so on your next trip, carry the only guide you''ll ever need—this one—and take to the great outdoors with confidence.
RICK CURTIS is the director of the Outdoor Action Program at Princeton University, one of the largest and most successful college outdoor programs in the country. He lectures regularly on topics ranging from outdoor leadership to risk management. Rick has been backpacking around the world for more than twenty-five years.
