This book is a little dated now, but still an excellent resource for those who are thinking about low-impact camping and hiking. Laura and Guy Waterman were among the first authors to understand the importance of leave no trace camping and they present the reason for these ideas in a straightforward, non-judgemental way in this book.

"A classic of backpacking literature." —Backpacker

When Backwood Ethics was first published in 1979, the Watermans' "new ethic" was enthusiastically received by environmentalists, hikers, and wilderness managers. This expanded edition brings the basics of low-impact hiking, camping and cooking, and alpine management into the 21st century. Here the authors take a fresh look at ways to protect the physical environment of our mountains and backcountry.
