In 1963, Colin Fletcher walked through the entire Grand Canyon. About how he did it, some are critical. Make up your own mind after reading the book. Regardless of how they do it, I frankly give credit to anyone who can do this incredible journey!

The latest version of The Complete Walker is his latest book: The Complete Walker IV. Referred sometimes as the hikers bible. You may want to read this one as well, if you like the first book. The original version is the most interesting, some say.

Beyond Backpacking: Ray Jardines Guide to Lightweight Hiking

Jardine conveys a wealth of information on how to enjoy your time in the back country, keep food from bears and lose pounds from your backpack. Not all, but most people find his book useful. You be the judge.
