KIRKUS REVIEW

This serves an immediate need and purpose, as many people are rediscovering their legs as a means of locomotion, and finding that it is fun. How to walk -- what to wear -- what sort of equipment for walking trips -- arranging the pack -- sleeping out -- use of maps -- of compasses -- what to do when lost -- health and first aid rules -- woodcraft -- trail lore-country walking -- city walking. A commonsense, how-to-do-it book, with almost no emphasis on such details as cooking (food, etc.) other than as part of a general picture. A good primer of walking, but intended for the novice rather than the experienced camper.
