Summary
From the Sierras to the Adirondacks and the Everglades, Dan White travels the nation to experience firsthand -- and sometimes face first -- how the American wilderness transformed from the devil's playground into a source of adventure, relaxation, and renewal. Whether he's camping nude in cougar country, being attacked by wildlife while "glamping," or crashing a girls-only adventure for urban teens, Dan White seeks to animate the evolution of outdoor recreation. In the process, he demonstrates how the likes of Emerson, Thoreau, Roosevelt, and Muir -- along with visionaries such as Adirondack Murray, Horace Kephart, and Juliette Gordon Low -- helped blaze a trail from Transcendentalism to Leave No Trace. Wide-ranging in research, enthusiasm, and geography, Under the Stars reveals a vast population of nature seekers; a country still in love with its wild places
