Winter camping is a burgeoning activity in Canada, and existing books on the subject are more geared for expedition style travel, longer trips, and more hardcore practitioners. Kevin Callan's Complete Guide to Winter Camping has enough tips and tricks to teach even an old snow dog new tricks, but is also geared for the intermediate, beginner, or anyone looking for an easy to read, comprehensive guide to all things winter camping.
Covering both cold camping, and hot tenting (camping with a small stove in the tent), The Complete Guide to Winter camping is an excellent guide to safe and fun ways to camp in the winter elements - covering safety, advice on setting up shelters, choosing sleep systems, warm clothing, how to track animals, check ice thickness, operate a snowmobile and even catch a fish while winter camping - a down to earth, easy to read guide for the novice and seasoned pro alike.
Updated and revised edition also includes chapters on:
- Weather forecasting
- Ice fishing
- Map and compass navigation
- Dutch ovens and baking in the bush
- Clothing, boots and snowshoe selection.
Complete with colour photos and expert advices from seasoned winter campers and travellers, this book will appeal to both car camping families and adventurous individuals looking to extend their outdoor activities into another season.
