From the Sierras to the Adirondacks and the Everglades to the jungles of Kentucky, Dan White travels the nation to experience firsthand 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, White brings plenty of self-effacing humor to his account of how he survived all of these experiences, and here he also chronicles how Emerson, Thoreau, Roosevelt, and Muir helped blaze a trail from Transcendentalism to Leave No Trace.
