a conversation with the earth guidebooks + inspiration + insight

Welcome

We publish unique guidebooks—intelligent, entertaining, opinionated—that ensure you make the most of your
precious time outdoors.

We also publish beautiful, stimulating books that celebrate
the truly adventurous life: contemplative, as well as
vigourous.

The world needs more hikers and campers, because
communion with nature makes us better people:
healthier, happier, saner. So thanks for visiting us.
And thanks for getting out there.
