Why I go Into the Woods

I go into the woods alone, to sit in silence and listen.  I hear birds singing, bugs chirping, and the wind rustling through the leaves.  I can smell the freshness in the air.  The longer I sit the more at peace I feel.  I am becoming one with the nature around me.  I feel a longing to connect with the animals that hide or scurry about.  I close my eyes, and let all the stress leave my body.  In that moment, all feels right with the world.  That’s why I go into the woods.

Advanced Wilderness Navigation by Jack Perry

Amazon has Advanced Wilderness Navigation by Jack Perry available as an ebook for free.  Before reading this book, you will need know how to use a compass and read a topographical map.

The book is short and to the point.  However, it is full of useful information.  It is easy to read and easy to understand.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys hiking, camping, or other wilderness activities.
