Summary:
With 400 strategies for engaging in the outdoors, and expert tips and tricks, The Great Outdoors: A Users Guide makes Mother Nature easier to understand than ever before. Brendan Leonard, writer, filmmaker, and outdoor adventurer, shows the reader how rewarding it can be to live life away from the computer and get outside. From mountain climbing, to skiing, sledding, and sailing, Leonard shows that you don't need to be a risk taker to enjoy the outdoors, sharing survival skills from how to bandage a wound and read a topographical map, to how to drive on sand and remove a tick from your skin. Organized thematically and written in short takeaway entries with line drawings, The Great Outdoors: A Users Guide is a friendly way into the outdoor lifestyle for those who want to dabble or go all in.
