Review:

This will give newbies a good base on winter backcountry use, whether they camp or not. (Billings Gazette)

This book could be the equivalent of a snowplow in the backwoods -- able to open up new avenues with tips, tricks, and must-know safety techniques. (Erie (PA) Times)

Winter Hiking & Camping makes a good case to enjoy the outdoors in winter. (Deseret Morning News)

If you don't plan to sit by the fire all winter, but rather want to get out and enjoy the snow and the cold, Winter Hiking and Camping should be at the top of your list...Even if you're an experienced cold-weather camper, you'll probably find quite a few tips on how to make your next trip to the snow backcountry a more pleasurable experience. (Cheyenne Wyoming Eagle-Tribune)

Following [Lanza's] guidelines, you can expect to stay safe, warm, and comfortable ... If camping or hiking in the winter sounds way too scary, this book should help chase off a few fears. Using the techniques in this book will make a huge difference. (Idaho Falls Post Register)

Good to have for those who travel a lot in the winter months in snow country. (Klamath Falls Herald and News)
