From reading reviews and comments, I had high hopes for this book. but was a little disappointed.
I expected some history, mixed with personal stories and practical guidance. In practice, I found it to be very heavy on the history, quite light on personal stories, and very little practical guidance. A very good book if you're particularly interested in the history of camping.
The author writes well, sounds like a nice bloke, someone you'd want as a camping neighbour, and is witty.
