May 2016 Book of the Month
As we near the summer months, I always like to revisit this book. Backwoods Ethics not only touches on environmental issues for hikers and campers and how to help solve those issues, it also serves as an inspiration for getting outside and being a steward of our precious land.
“When Backwood Ethics was first published in 1979, the Watermans’ “new ethic” was enthusiastically received by environmentalists, hikers, and wilderness managers. This expanded edition brings the basics of low-impact hiking, camping and cooking, and alpine management into the 21st century. Here the authors take a fresh look at ways to protect the physical environment of our mountains and backcountry.”
