good for basics and a bit of inspiration
on 16 February 2010
this book is fairly basic, mainly aimed at people with little camping experience or with aspirations of getting into camping who are unsure of where to start. saying that, the way the book is written, in a nice, laid-back style, with anecdotal advice and genuine camping experiences, is inspirational enough to make it interesting for regular campers.
it has a very family oriented vibe to it and is nicely illustrated with the kind of photography that makes you want to get out there. the recipes section particularly appealed to my girlfriend's love of the one-pot camp cooking ethic and the advice on camping activities such as outdoor swimming are informative whilst still being slightly rebellious.
though this is a basics guide to camping, i'd still say it was interesting enough for someone with much camping experience and there are tips and advice that come form genuine experience, making it a good, informative read.
