The Art of Camping: The History and Practice of Sleeping Under the Stars (Paperback)

£9.99
Usually despatched in 7-10 days.

Synopsis

Could there be another way of life? Can I survive with less stuff? Should I run for the hills?



These are all good questions that people have asked before, throughout history, and which have inspired people to set up camp. But now camping is part of the drive for self-sufficiency, a reaction against mass tourism, a chance to connect with the land, to experience a community, to leave no trace . . .



From packing to pitching, with hikes into the deep history of the subject and encounters with the great campers and camping movements of the past, this is a witty and philosophical blend of 'how to', history and personal anecdotes - a must for every camper.
