Comments about MOUNTAINEER BOOKS Freedom of the Hills, 8th edition:

i was very pleased with the content of this book. i wish i had gotten it sooner in my hiking career. i would strongly recommend it for beginner and intermediate outdoor enthusiasts or for anyone who needs a comprehensive reference guide e.g. knot tying, emergency situations.
