This pocket-size book might be a life-saver—or at least a time- and embarrassment-saver! Veteran outdoorsman Bruce Grubbs provides the essentials of desert backcountry driving, hiking, and camping. Sections that are especially useful for Big Bend include how to avoid getting stuck in sandy sections of primitive roads (or get un-stuck!); what to be afraid of when hiking (rattlesnakes are pretty low on the list!); and how to pick a campsite in the desert back country. A great resource for beginners AND for expert hikers and drivers accustomed to wetter or cooler climates.
