You’re already an experienced camper when it comes to camping at developed campgrounds. But what would it be like to turn onto a dirt road leading to a distant mountain range or perhaps out to an isolated desert area leaving most folks behind where solitude and serenity rule? No inconsiderate all night partiers “sharing” their music with you whether you like it or not. No generators. No campsite restrictions for parking your vehicle at exactly four inches from some barrier. No need for reservations. And, typically there are no campsite fees! Of course even off road camping on land under the jurisdiction of the Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Forest Service, and state parks do have rules. But their rules are usually much less restrictive than those of a developed campground managed by some corporation or other entity. You have much more freedom to choose your own campsite and park your vehicle where you want.

OHV is an abbreviation for “Off Highway Vehicle” and is a term used by government jurisdictions with authority over an area designated for legal use of vehicles for the purpose of traveling literally off the highway. The Beginners Guide to OHV Camping introduces you to the concepts of combining the skill set of off road travel with simple, safe, and comfortable camping. There exists a wealth of scenery in our forests, deserts, and plains throughout our country which are virtually unscathed by development, vandals, and inconsiderate campers leaving their trash behind. The reason these areas remain preserved is the fact that they are only accessible by vehicles designed for off road travel therefore significantly reduces the amount of overall traffic into these areas. Off road camping enthusiasts are very protective of these environments which they visit year after year while introducing new generations of campers to the beauty of the outdoors. Here a just a few topics covered in The Beginners Guide to OHV Camping:

•In addition to camping equipment, The Beginners Guide to OHV Camping recommends a host of tools you won’t want to be without specifically for addressing off road travel situations.

•Is your off road vehicle equipped with oversize tires? The Beginners Guide to OHV Camping reminds you of what you might be forgetting.

•Follow the author on one of his favorite desert trips as The Beginners Guide to OHV Camping teaches you how to read topographic maps along with a compass to navigate the backcountry.

•Know your limitations when evaluating trail conditions including mud, snow, soft sand, and creek crossings. The Beginners Guide to OHV Camping offers advice for addressing these types of obstacles.

•Visiting gold country? The Beginners Guide to OHV Camping cautions you about the potential dangers of old exposed mines.

Fixing Landscape: A Techno-Poetic History of China’s Three Gorges (Studies of the Weatherhead East Asian Institute, Columbia University)

$65.00

In 1994, workers broke ground on China’s Three Gorges Dam. By its completion in 2012, the dam had transformed the ecology of the Yangzi River, displaced over a million people, and forever altered a landscape immortalized in centuries of literature and art. The controversial history of the dam is well known; what this book uncovers are its unexpected connections to the cultural traditions it seems to sever. By reconsidering the dam in relation to the aesthetic history of the Three Gorges region over more than two millennia, Fixing Landscape offers radically new ways of thinking about cultural and spatial production in contemporary China.

Corey Byrnes argues that this monumental feat of engineering can only be understood by confronting its status as a techno-poetic act, a form of landscaping indebted to both the technical knowledge of engineers and to the poetic legacies of the Gorges as cultural site. Synthesizing methods drawn from premodern, modern, and contemporary Chinese studies, as well as from critical geography, art history, and the environmental humanities, Byrnes offers innovative readings of eighth-century poetry, paintings from the twelfth through twenty-first centuries, contemporary film, nineteenth-century British travelogues, and Chinese and Western maps, among other sources. Fixing Landscape shows that premodern poetry and visual art have something urgent to tell us about a contemporary experiment in spatial production. Poems and paintings may not build dams, but Byrnes argues that the Three Gorges Dam would not exist as we know it without them.

If you’ve never experienced the tension of failed equipment aboard or had to explain to guests why there is no more fresh water or panicked when thick fog closed in just after you had forgotten to make note of the last two buoys, you probably don’t need to keep a log.
