Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Full of practical, to-the-point advice…Magnanti’s decades of field experience combined with an often humorous writing style, make this book not only a great resource for beginners, but also brings home the fact that as long as you are well prepared, heading out into the woods is an experience to be enjoyed, rather than simply endured.” Cam Honan, author of The Hiking Life
“Magnanti’s…approachable and unintimidating explanations make being outdoors seem simple and reasonable, as it should. Paul’s experience as a guide shines through as he anticipates what can go wrong that most wouldn’t think about. How to Survive Your First Trip in the Wild is a modern handbook for life in the outdoors and is destined to bring the outdoors within reach of today’s ‘outdoor curious’ person.” Liz Thomas, author of Long Trails, winner of the 2017 National Outdoor Book Award
“You can learn to backpack in one of two ways: the hard way, through miserable and expensive trial and error, or from an expert like Paul, who has hiked tens of thousands of miles and has spent hundreds of days in the field. This book is full of honest, practical, and accurate advice that is ideally suited for first-time and beginner backpackers.” Andrew Skurka, guide, writer, and National Geographic “Adventurer of the Year”
