THe Complete Walker 3, By Colin Fletcher

The Complete Walker III
by Colin Fletcher

Often referred to as "The Hikers Bible", this
book is an outdoor enthuist's classic.


 


This is one of those Ubiquitious Classics that every serious backpacker has in their possesion.  Many, many a hardy outdoor loving soul has paged through this awesome tome.  If you don't have this book, go purchase it right now. Most decent bookstores keep it in stock.  This book covers every aspect of backpacking, from gear, to food, to shelter, to philosophy.

If you are or plan to become a backpacker, then you need this book.  Mr. Fletcher does an excellent job of discussing all the facets of backpacking.  His approach and philosophy is very unique and insightful.  Mr. Feltcher conveys to the reader that walking is not his hobby, its his lifestyle. 

This is a great book to leave on the back of the toilet or on your nightstand.  Its easy to pick up and read a chapeter then put down and do something else.  I dont know what else to say except you need to own this book.
