Outdoor and guide books are great for people who are new to an activity or location and have a passion for knowledge on specific topics or possible destinations. Outdoor guide books usually contain tons of helpful information and beautiful pictures on a wide array of topics, activities, locations and equipment. Guide books like camping and trail guides normally help readers learn about sporting techniques and have detailed instructions on possible adventures and destinations. Camping and trail guides are great for planning and researching a trip or activity and work wonderfully as a backup when plans unexpectedly change. Outdoor books and guides from brands like National Geographic and Heliconia Press are superb presents for anyone prone to wanderlust.
