Here is the first truly complete book on desert travel, exploration, and survival, presenting the desert not as an alien environment to be overcome or endured, but rather as a fascinating opportunity for anyone eager to learn about and safely enjoy a different kind of outdoor experience. Assuming no prior desert know-how, this guide is intended for hikers, backpackers, vehicle travelers and campers, and the wide range of enthusiasts pursuing their chosen activities into the desert: mountain bikers, ultralight plane and glider pilots, rock climbers, birding enthusiasts, rock and fossil hunters, and wildlife and landscape photographers. Even dayhikers and occasional tourists to desert locations will find the book easy to understand and extremely useful.A Manual for Desert Hikers, Campers and Travelers G. Mark Johnson ...
