Canadian outdoors enthusiast Callan (Once Around Algonquin: An Epic Canoe Journey) reminds readers that cold weather needn’t be an obstacle to camping. Here he covers winter camping basics, with guidance on choosing trip mates, meal planning, identifying animal tracks, and staying safe. His humorous, informative book includes detailed photographs, checklists, pithy quotes, and recipes. The updated edition adds chapters on weather forecasting, baking in the bush, and selecting boots and snowshoes.
VERDICT Highly readable for folks snug at home or preparing for ice fishing, shelter building, or axe sharpening. Callan’s mix of encouragement and safety-first practicality will be helpful to those planning winter outings.
