For those who venture into the back country to hike, climb, or camp and have true reverence for the bountiful beauty they find there, this book is a must read.--Tom Wessels "Author "
The Green Guide to Low-Impact Hiking and Camping is part how-to, part meditation, and part history. The authors, with subtle humor, take the reader on a profound adventure into the woods. We learn how to keep the mountain world the way we found it, and how to inspire others to step outside and explore the wild.--Lucas St. Clair "Author "
Nearly four decades after its groundbreaking appearance, "Backwoods Ethics" remains as relevant today as it did when the Watermans first wrote it. How do we reduce our impact on the backcountry when we're all so busy "connecting" via smart phones and tablets, when so many of us seek greater and greater challenges in the outdoors? The Watermans don't just ask us to minimize our impact -- they cajole and question us with humor and with love -- love for the backcountry and for all of us who use it.--Rebecca Oreskes "Former U.S. Forest Service Recreation and Wilderness Specialist "
Although information and ideas now flow through our society more easily than ever, it still takes continuous effort for new understanding to settle in. Over the past generation, we've seen more and more backcountry travelers who have adopted the concept of low-impact camping and hiking. The Green Guide to Low-Impact Hiking and Camping is just this type of positive force for cultural change. Our forests and mountains have a brighter future thanks to this clear and understandable work by Laura and Guy Waterman, two legends of the northeast mountains.--Jensen Bissell "Director "
With ultramarathoners popping champagne corks atop Katahdin, and smartphones seemingly standard backpacking gear, we need to read Laura and Guy's Backwoods Ethics more than ever! An essential book for those who camp and wander in wild places.--Robert Alden Rubin
