The Best in Tent Camping: Maryland, 2nd edition
Evan L. Balkan


Your Car-Camping Guide to Scenic Beauty, the Sounds of Nature, and an Escape from Civilization

Called “America in Miniature” by National Geographic editor Gilbert Grosvenor, Maryland packs an extraordinary amount of natural diversity into a relatively small area. With the Atlantic Ocean in the east, Allegheny Mountains in the west, and the country’s largest estuary—the Chesapeake Bay—splitting the state down the middle, any outdoors enthusiast finds a happy home in Maryland.

It’s not at all surprising, then, that this natural legacy and diversity extends to the campgrounds: Federal parks, state parks, and forests; US Army Corps of Engineers’ recreation areas; county parks; and private campgrounds make up a patchwork of exciting prospects for every level of camping enthusiast.

Splitting the state into three distinct geographical regions—Western Maryland, Central Maryland, and Southern Maryland/Eastern Shore—Best Tent Camping: Maryland, by local outdoorsman and writer Evan Balkan, will guide campers to 50 of the best campgrounds the state has to offer. Within these 50 profiles are campgrounds with every imaginable facility, as well as primitive campsites far from population centers and everything in between. For car camping in Maryland, this is an indispensable guide.

The Alaska River Guide

The Alaska River Guide
Karen Jettmar


    The rich tapestry of Alaska is threaded together by 365,000 miles of waterways, from cascading mountain streams to meandering valley rivers, from the meltwaters of glaciers to broad rivers that empty into the sea. These waterways run deep in the fabric of Alaskan life, providing means of communication, nutrition, and transport for plants, animals, and people.
 
    Highly sought after by Alaska river runners, The Alaska River Guide is the premier guide to Alaskan paddling. Karen Jettmar's insightful narrative combined with detailed river maps, photographs, and crucial at-a-glance information provides readers with the knowledge they need to plan a successful Alaska river trip. Details such as cautions to river hazards, prime paddling season, directions to river access points, and summaries of fish and wildlife encountered round out this one-of-a-kind guide.

     This book profiles a wide variety of rivers from all over Alaska, concentrating mainly on trips for intermediate boaters—those who have run Class I and II rivers with proficiency and who possess good wilderness camping skills. Some are good day trips; others involve major expedition planning. Most of the river trips described here are not high-speed experiences requiring helmets, wet suits, and sleek poly playboats—but several are. Some of the rivers are easily accessible by road and offer exciting whitewater runs (Gulkana River, Nenana River, Eagle River). On many of the rivers you can join tours, whether for an hour or for a month. The author looks at rivers as avenues to fine wilderness country and at boats as transportation rather than tools for surviving Class IV rapids.
   
    In writing this guidebook the author tried to not steal away the elements of surprise and adventure that people seek on a wilderness trip. Alaska's remoteness and size still offer plenty of both. The goal is to provide enough information to help you prepare for a trip, without spoiling your sense of discovery. At the same time, writing about an area inherently invites people to it and possibly makes it more popular. None of the rivers described in this guide is unknown, and some are already quite popular. The agencies that manage river areas can provide additional information on the places you plan to visit. (There's a listing of land managers at the back of this book.)
 
    River ratings and other information in this book provide guidance, but keep in mind that rivers are dynamic: they swell with snowmelt and rain, and they change course over time. For a particular river, use your best judgment in determining whether you have the boating and wilderness skills required. Factor in the river's remoteness and coldness, and the difficulty of being rescued, and then decide on the river for you.

Spokesman-Review (Spokane, WA), August 2008
The book has just been revised, "maintaining its standing as an essential trip-planning resource for adventurers planning paddling or rafting trips in the Last Frontier. . . . The trip-planning information at the front of the book . . . has saved bush travelers tons of grief since the first version of the book came out in 1993."

Ten Million Steps

Ten Million Steps
M.J. Eberhart


    If every journey begins with a single step, the culmination of M. J. Eberhart's would bring that number to an estimated ten million. In January 1998, the retired optometrist from Florida began what would become a historic, 10-month, 4400 mile journey, on foot, from the Florida Keys to Cap GaspŽ, Quebec. Originally self-published in 2000 as a hardcover and since out of print, Ten Million Steps made Eberhart, known on the trail as "Nimblewill Nomad", a hiking legend. Menasha Ridge Press is proud to reintroduce this vivid and honest account of his celebrated trek to hikers, outdoor enthusiasts and armchair adventurers in a new softcover edition. In his engaging style, Eberhart recounts his days and nights of deep joy, painful, physical hardship and self-discovery on what is now known as the Eastern Continental Trail.

    Written in a vivid journal style, the author unabashedly recounts the good (friendships with other hikers he met), the bad (sore legs, cutting winds and rain), and the godawful (those dispiriting doubts) aspects of his days of walking along what has since become known as the Eastern Continental Trail (ECT). An amazing tale of self-discovery and insight into the magic that reverberates from intense physical exertion and a high goal, Eberhart’s is the only written account of a thru-hike along the ECT. Covering 16 states and 2 Canadian provinces, Ten Million Steps deftly mixes practical considerations of an almost unimaginable undertaking with the author’s trademark humor and philosophical musings.
