How to Shit in the Woods, 3rd Edition: An Environmentally Sound Approach to a Lost Art
Publisher:Ten Speed Press
WHEN NATURE CALLS. . . After rowing hundreds of urban North Americans down whitewater rivers, Kathleen Meyer discovered that defecating in the wild without a commode is hardly an innate skill, but a complex procedure desperately in need of a protocol! This sobering revelation, and her subsequent mastery of the artform, has made How to Shit in the Woods the backcountry bible of eco-friendly outdoor elimination options since 1989. Long-embraced by the outdoor community, How to Shit in the Woods is still the go-to primer for backpackers and hikers, campers and climbers, skiers, sea kayakers, river runners, and all off-the-grid sojourners. The third edition presents the latest innovations, high-tech to low-tech, for responsible human waste disposal. Also featured: reflections on the increasing adoption of “packing-it-out,” a practice designed to help protect sensitive environments; the most current safeguards against health risks associated with drinking straight from wilderness waterways; suggestions for purists who plan to leave the t.p. at home; and a wealth of recommendations for ladies who must make do without a loo. Meyer's delightfully shameless discussion of a once-shameful activity, her erudite examination of its associated vocabulary, and her unapologetic promotion of its colorful vernacular, make How to Shit in the Woods essential—and vastly entertaining—reading for anyone who has ever paused at the edge of the wilderness and pondered, ""Where do I go to go?""
