With summer in mind and the hope of getting out and doing some camping/hiking I thought I would share this book I recently picked up. Camping Around the Appalachian Mountains by Jim Crain and Terry Milne, published in 1975, it is a collection of beautifully hand drawn maps and useful tips for camping both on the Appalachian Trail and other parks around it.
An example of one of the maps found in the book, a favorite and close to home section of the trail.
Along with tips for camping there are also tons of suggestions on what to do and see while out camping, as if the simple act of camping and enjoying the Appalachians isn’t enough. Of course accompanying the advice are some excellent illustrations. The rest can be seen here.
