During my adult life I have spent more nights outdoors than in.

I have served as an outdoor guide, educator, conservationist, researcher, crew leader and enthusiast from the bear-chomps of Alaska to the rock-falls of canyon country.

Currently working at a remote research station deep in the rain forest of Borneo studying primate ecology.

comment What good factual books have you read on an outdoors topic?
If this question is going to stick around, I really think a Community wiki is the way to go: outdoors.stackexchange.com/a/3600/86 -- otherwise it will become a pain to follow
