A gift for the adventurer

Interested in hiking, trekking, through hiking, walkabouts, and munro bagging? Then this book is for you! Over 40 adventurers from around the world share their achievements, mishaps and outdoor lessons learned, in this giant book of outdoor wisdom. Dozens of magnificent full colour wilderness scenes are included throughout these pages.

The authors love of the outdoors grew from childhood experiences that began in the Kootenay area of British Columbia, Canada. On five acres of treed land, his family built a log home near Nakusp, BC. In the remote ranching community of Big Creek, BC, he attended a one room country schoolhouse. Several of the children traveled to school by horse. It was not a typical 80’s school circumstance. While in the Chilcotin country, Clayton and his six brothers helped local ranchers with trail drives that lasted up to three days. Those childhood experiences created a love of nature that would never leave.
