More Information:
The Master Guide Handbook to Outdoor Adventure Trips is an indispensable guide for any outdoors person, but it is especially written for people who have already accumulated a degree of out-of-doors experience and knowledge, and are now faced with the prospect of leading others afield. Legendary Maine Guide Award winner Gil Gilpatrick has been a Master Maine Guide for over 40 years, and has guided commercially for much of that time. In this book readers will gain the benefit of his experience, as well as that of several other respected guides and outdoor professionals who have contributed their expertise.

This is a book that helps leaders to help others, with field-tested advice for successfully leading any camping, hiking, canoeing or hunting trip. The reader is taken through each step in the planning and conduct of a successful outdoor expedition. Special emphasis is placed on preparations to ensure the safety and well being of those people for whom the leader is responsible.

Covering a wide range of important topics in one short, easy to understand volume, Gil?s useful checklist system provides guidance on what to pack and how to pack it, supplemented by his best trail recipes. Special chapters focus on dealing with cold or wet weather, while other chapters provide essential advice on how to prevent injuries or losing people, and what to do if either of those should happen. A chapter on navigation includes both compass and GPS technology.

Clear writing and a fresh approach makes this book a classic among outdoor guides, and the textbook of choice for professional guides as well as for those who aspire to guide professionally.
