Reviews

Does for camping what Roger Deakin did for wild swimming * Independent * A delightful combination of history and memoir with a generous dollop of guidance thrown on top . . . read this gem of a book * Economist * An elegant ode to the joys of camping. All sorts of tips on campsite etiquette, lore, equipment, and best practice, and his advice is convincing and honest. He is a lovely writer and his history is enlivened with tremendous flashes of wit * Daily Telegraph * Teaming witty anecdotes with a potted history of what sleeping under the stars means sociologically, De Abaitua makes learning how to create a tented home away from home fun * Elle * De Abaitua will soon have you believing in this consistently engaging and enjoyable book. It's a fine writer indeed who can seem authoritative, approachable and just great fun * Metro *
