Now in a new format, Homecamp is a beautiful collection of stories, images and camping tips that will inspire you to rediscover the rejuvenating power of the outdoors. At the start of the book, you will find a how-to guide with helpful tips and illustrations, from how to choose and set up camp to brewing the perfect campfire coffee and enjoying the outdoors without leaving a trace. This is followed by compelling accounts from everyday adventurers, including a number of new stories for this edition.
These essays come from people all around the world who've embraced the outdoors on their terms. Some have gone on epic adventures: sold their belongings and lived in a van, trekked through the Himalayas or biked across continents. Others simply found new ways of seeing the world around them: cleaned up a beach, learned how to forage or adopted a rewilding lifestyle. This is a book that encourages you to leave behind the stress of the 9-to-5 grind, and embrace the simple pleasures found in the pounding waves, a roaring campfire or a star-filled sky. Its message is that nature can transform your life, and doing that isn't as difficult as you think.
