The Winter Camping Handbook
by Stephen Gorman
Winter camping has its own special allure: the splendid quiet of a winter forest, the hush of falling snow, the thrill of gliding over ice and snow on skis. From building a snow shelter to traveling comfortably in sub-zero temperatures, The Winter Camping Handbook covers everything you'll need to know in order to enjoy wilderness travel and adventure in the cold weather months. Extremely user-friendly, the book's step-by-step approach covers everything from choosing a location to explore, selecting teammates, planning the trip, winterizing a travel vehicle, gear selection, travel skills and navigation, making camp, food and nutrition, dealing with winter safety concerns, and even camping with children.
