For the first time since 1984, we have a new edition of the classic book that Field & Stream called “the Hiker’s Bible.” For this version, the celebrated writer and hiker Colin Fletcher has taken on a coauthor, Chip Rawlins, himself an avid outdoorsman and a poet from Wyoming. Together, they have made this fourth edition of The Complete Walker the most informative, entertaining, and thorough version yet. The eighteen years since the publication of The Complete Walker III have seen revolutionary changes in hiking and camping equipment: developments in waterproofing technology, smaller and more durable stoves, lighter boots, more manageable tents, and a wider array of food options. The equipment recommendations are therefore not merely revised and tweaked, but completely revamped. During these two decades we have also seen a deepening of environmental consciousness. Not only has backpacking become more popular, but a whole ethic of responsible outdoorsmanship has emerged. In this book the authors confidently lead us through these technological, ethical, and spiritual changes. Fletcher and Rawlins’s thorough appraisal and recommendation of equipment begins with a “Ground Plan,” a discussion of general hiking preparedness. How much to bring? What are the ideal clothes, food, boots, and tents for your trip? They evaluate each of these variables in detail—including open, honest critiques and endorsements of brand-name equipment. Their equipment searches are exhaustive; they talk in detail about everything from socks to freeze-dried trail curries. They end as they began, with a philosophical and literary disquisition on the reasons to walk, capped off with a delightful collection of quotes about walking and the outdoor life. After a thoughtful and painstaking analysis of hiking gear from hats to boots, from longjohns to tent flaps, they remind us that ultimately hiking is about the experience of being outdoors and seeing the green world anew. Like its predecessors, The Complete Walker IV is an essential purchase for anyone captivated by the outdoor life.

How to Die Down East

Maine is certainly an exciting place, with a plethora of outdoor activities to pursue. It’s also generally a safe place and most of those activities can be done by those with little to no experience. Don’t let that lull you into a false sense of security however, there are numerous ways to perish in Maine’s outdoors. Now, renowned wilderness medicine expert and storyteller Buck Tilton casts his glance on these dangers. Tongue planted firmly in cheek, Tilton takes a humorous look at just how you might die in Maine, and what he finds runs the gamut from downright deadly to uncomfortable, but unlikely to kill, to just plain silly. Some of nature’s methods are distinctly possible without proper precautions, from rogue waves to rip currents to great white sharks. Others amount to simply wishing you were dead, like stepping on a sea urchin. And others cross the boundary into the nonsensical, such as being singled out by Sasquatch. Broken into sections depending on severity and likeliness of actually dying, all the entries are told with a storyteller’s ear for humor and whimsy. Many are illustrated in full color by Maine cartoonist David Jacobson

How to Die in the Outdoors

By living a normal, boring life like most people do, one has an excellent chance of becoming yet another statistic on the proverbial list of the leading causes of death. Of course, the process can be accelerated a bit by eating lots of fat, giving up exercise, smoking, drinking heavily (not water), and worrying. Buck Tilton prefers to ponder the alternatives. In How to Die in the Outdoors, he presents us with 110 far more interesting and unique ways to perish: snake bite, elephant foot, walrus tusk, rhino horn, and many, many more. In a straightforward style laced with his trademark wit, and presented in easy to understand terms, Tilton describes not only the details of how one can die, some intriguingly gory and all based—more or less—on facts, but also the ways to avoid death should life-threatening situations arise in which one is not ready to check out of this world and into whatever afterlife there may be.
