Under the Stars
How America Fell in Love with Camping
by Dan White
From the Sierras to the Adirondacks and the Everglades, Dan White travels the nation to experience firsthand—and sometimes face-first—how the America wilderness transformed from the devil’s playground into a source of adventure, relaxation, and renewal.
Whether he’s camping nude in cougar country, being attacked by wildlife while “glamping,” or crashing a girls-only adventure for urban teens, White seeks to animate the evolution of outdoor recreation. In the process, he demonstrates how the likes of Emerson, Thoreau, Roosevelt, and Muir—along with visionaries such as “Adirondack” Murray, Horace Kephart, and Juliette Gordon Low—helped blaze a trail from transcendentalism to Leave No Trace.
Wide-ranging in research, enthusiasm, and geography, Under the Stars reveals a vast population of nature seekers and a country still in love with its wild places.
