Horse camping has long been part of Pacific Northwest lore, and George Hatley has a deep connection to the region and its early pioneers. As a boy, listened to his grandfather recount his 1877 arrival, describing a beautiful expanse with stirrup-high grass waving in the wind like ocean surf. He eventually became a cattle rancher and trail guide, indulging both his adventurous spirit and his passion for horses by leading numerous camping trips amid the Northwest¿s magnificent mountains and canyons. Pack trips allow individuals of many ages and physical abilities to reach glorious backcountry they would never see otherwise. Originally released in 1981 and again in 1992, George Hatley¿s common-sense manual is considered a classic. In his amiable, practical voice, he shares both successes and oversights, and reveals observations and experiences from years as an outfitter. He covers trip planning, horses, tack, gear, food, and other aspects of advanced preparation. He discusses horse hauling and packing for the journey. Finally, he provides information about setting out on the trail, establishing a site, and life in camp. This new WSU Press edition has been skillfully updated by Juli Thorson, Editor at Large and Associate Publisher of "Horse & Rider" magazine.
