Solo camping, by its very nature, attracts the type of person who is contemplative in nature and is comfortable with themselves and the solitude that solo camping engenders. Sadly that contemplative nature is frequently frustrated. While we are awed by nature's grandeur, its simplicity and its events, we are frequently unable to put those thoughts into prose that express the emotions even to ourselves.
Enter "The Ragged Mountain Portable Wilderness Anthology", a compendium of pithy, soothing, exciting and lucid essays by some of the finest nature writers that have ever lived - RM Patterson, Aldo Leopold, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, John Muir, Edward Abbey and Sigurd Olson, to name only a few.
A great lightweight companion for someone who's probably exquisitely aware of every ounce on their back and an entertaining after dinner luxury item for whiling away that campfire time before you curl up into the sleeping bag for the night!
And, you might consider giving a copy to a friend who just doesn't understand why you like being "out there"!
