Description
In these last wildlands of North America, the nomadic, indigenous people have perfected ways of living & traveling in winter using elegant & sophisticated snowshoes, toboggans, & sleds that make it possible for trekkers to carry heavy weights-wood stoves, wall tents, & real food-with far less effort than with the ultralight backpacking equipment more often associated with the winter camper. This important book brings the skills & philosophy of the snow walkers of the north woods to a new generation of outdoorspeople, & shows today's wilderness traveler how to adopt these Native American techniques & enjoy winter in a comfort nothing short of extraordinary.
