Books about the outdoors and our favorite activities can be a great a way to wait out a long winter.
We're still getting out when we can, but cozying up in a comfortable chair and cracking a book can take us on adventures far away and share the experiences and insight of others.
We can live vicariously through their stories, or use their words and images to motivate us to launch our own outings.
These are books I've read through the years that stand as either classics, favorites or unexpected treasures. They cut through a lot of literary territory, but share one thing in common; they are all interesting to read.
Some may be challenging to find, but searching can be a great experience because you never know what other books you will find.
Check them out from a library, comb bookstores or find them on the Internet.
