A good tool for understanding how adventure seekers manage risk and tackle
challenges while traveling through wilderness environments is the concept of “
wayfinding” (Ingold, 2000). Wayfinding is a type of improvised, learn-as-you-go, ...

Wilderness provides a multidisciplinary introduction into the diverse ways in which we make sense of wilderness: how we conceptualise it, experience it, interact with, and imagine it. Drawing upon key theorists, philosophers, and researchers who have contributed important knowledge to the topic, this title argues for a relational and process based notion of the term and understands it as a keystone for the examination of issues from conservation to more-than-human relations. The text is organized around themed chapters discussing the concept of wilderness and its place in the social imagination, wilderness regulation and management, access, travel and tourism, representation in media and arts, and the use of wilderness for education, exploration, play, and therapy, as well as its parcelling out in parks, reserves, or remote "wastelands". The book maps out the historical transformation of the idea of wilderness, highlighting its intersections with notions of nature and wildness and teasing out the implications of these links for theoretical debate. It offers boxes that showcase important recent case studies ranging from the development of adventure travel and eco-tourism to the practice of trekking to the changing role of technology use in the wild. Summaries of key points, further readings, Internet-based resources, short videos, and discussion questions allow readers to grasp the importance of wilderness to wider social, cultural, political, economic, historical and everyday processes. Wilderness is designed for courses and modules on the subject at both postgraduate and undergraduate levels. The book will also assist professional geographers, sociologists, anthropologists, environmental and cultural studies scholars to engage with recent and important literature on this elusive concept.

Remote desert locations, including the Chihuahuan Desert of northern Mexico, southern Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona, draw adventurers of all kinds, from the highly skilled and well prepared to urban cowboys who couldn't lead themselves (much less a horse!) to water. David Alloway's goal in this book is to help all of them survive when circumstances beyond their control strand them in the desert environment. In simple, friendly language, enlivened with humor and stories from his own extensive experience, Alloway here offers a practical, comprehensive handbook for both short-term and long-term survival in the Chihuahuan and other North American deserts.

"The 8th WWC continued to build on a proud tradition of setting practical conservation objectives. As these pages will reveal, scientists, Native people, politicians, corporate leaders, artists, educators, and others reviewed the first wilderness area in Latin America, which was made possible by Mexico's pioneering wilderness law. The delegates also expanded the list of private-sector wilderness areas, convened the first Native Lands and Wilderness Council, created the International League of Conservation Photographers, critiqued new wilderness inventories and maps, and much more. Wilderness, Wildlands, and People details the many accomplishments of the 8th WWC and its vision for a better future."--Jacket.

From the northern shores and tundra, across the western plains and mountains, to the swamps and southern shores, AMERICA'S WILDLIFE REFUGES honors and celebrates the centennial anniversary and incredible success stories of our nation's wildlife refuges. Larger than our National Park System, the National Wildlife Refuge System is the largest system of lands in the world dedicated to placing ""wildlife first."" Represented in every state and visited annually by more than 34 million people, there are 538 refuges covering nearly 95 million acres that provide protected habitat for over 2100 species of animals, including 260 of our most imperiled species. The spectacular color photography of Tom and Pat Leeson brings the dramatic beauty of the refuge lands and their inhabitants to life, while author Jeanne Clark tells the amazing success stories of American wildlife, including the brown pelican, the bison, the bald eagle, and the desert pupfish.
