Top 19 Camping Books



19 .) A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail written by Bill Bryson

 A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail

Lists It Appears On:

  • Bustle
  • Masters Review
  • Signature Reads

Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail. The Appalachian Trail stretches from Georgia to Maine and covers some of the most breathtaking terrain in America–majestic mountains, silent forests, sparking lakes. If you’re going to take a hike, it’s probably the place to go. And Bill Bryson is surely the most entertaining guide you’ll find. He introduces us to the history and ecology of the trail and to some of the other hardy (or just foolhardy) folks he meets along the way–and a couple of bears. Already a classic, A Walk in the Woods will make you long for the great outdoors (or at least a comfortable chair to sit and read in).

Inside a tent it’s cozy. But what is going on outside? Is it dark? Is it scary? Not if you have your trusty flashlight! Told solely through images and using a spare yet dramatic palette, artist Lizi Boyd has crafted a masterful exploration of night, nature, and art. Both lyrical and humorous, this visual poem—like the flashlight beam itself—reveals that there is magic in the darkness. We just have to look for it.

 Amelia Bedelia Goes Camping

Lists It Appears On:

  • Autistic Mama
  • PBS
  • Tents and Trails
  • We Are Teachers

Amelia Bedelia has never been camping. She tries her best to do as the Rogers order, but pitching a tent is not the same as throwing it into the bushes, and catching a fish with bare hands does not mean keeping. Tent stakes are not the same as tent-shaped steaks. Starting a fire on the grill may take a match more than pine cones and coffee grounds. Shhh for sleeping bags.

  • The Crazy Outdoor Map

In this beautifully illustrated book, one busy family finds lots to do from sun up to sunset. At the campsite, there’s wood to chop for the fire and fish to catch. And there’s lots of time to explore, climb rocks, splash in the lake, and discover animals in the shadows of the woods. As afternoon turns to evening, supper needs to be made, and just before bed, stories are told around the campfire. When We Go Camping is as instructional as it is delightful. Each painting highlights the tracks of one animal, which curve from the text into the illustration. Readers can turn to the glossary for more details about the wildlife depicted on each page. When We Go Camping is a perfect way to preserve summer memories all year long.
