The Complete Walker
Their equipment searches are exhaustive; they talk in detail about everything from socks to freeze-dried trail curries. They end as they began, with a philosophical and literary disquisition on the reasons to walk, capped off with a delightful collection of quotes about walking and the outdoor life. After a thoughtful and painstaking analysis of hiking gear from hats to boots, from longjohns to tent flaps, they remind us that ultimately hiking is about the experience of being outdoors and seeing the green world anew.

Complete Walker, First Edition - AbeBooks
If I could save only one of my books in a fire, 3rd edition would be the one. I bet he would be a hoot to have a pint at the pub with. MR3T , Sep 7, Have most of his books, perhaps not the winds of mara, been reading his trip down the Colorado in the raft mostly He was One of the Men of his time! In my early days he was "The Man" who helped me onto the paths through woods, fields and mountains.
I gave a copy to a very good friend when he showed interest in backpacking. Although dated by todays standards it is still a good read. Many modern ultra light backpackers pooh pooh his ideas and methods. Shame on them He did more in modern times to draw people into backpacking than many before him.

I bought the 4th edition, when it first came out, whenever that was, and have read it a few times. Ironically, I just located a 1st edition, at a local used book store the other day, and added it to my nostalgia shelf. Ragnar Aettskjoldur , Sep 13, I've read all of them as well. I have the newer one that was co-authored but like the originals better. Naturalist , Sep 13, Thanks for recommendations and comments.
Paddled CO River through canyon in a prior life, and always looking for thoughtful material on the subject. Any suggestions on good sources for original works?
Major Russell , Sep 13, Found a printing of The Complete Walker on fleabay, like 8th printing from the original printing in Would this be the "original" text? Any reason? I must confess I'm ignorant of this one; is it public domain? In my defense I wasn't born until the mid-eighties. Youcantreadinthedark , Sep 13, First read it in 68 right after it came out.
