An illusionary book that looked like an era was reprinted as a paperback book.
Now by Kazuhiro Serizawa,
Until this time,
Or rather,There was not even the word "outdoor".
Just a few years before this book came out,
Shuinard climbing equipment, Kelty's pack frame,
At the same time, the concept of 'backpacking' comes in,
However, backpacking on a commercial basis is
Hippy Commune with tail from Vietnam anti-war and beatnik
It is far behind in Japan that the concept of its essence has been disseminated
This book is a book that beautifully represents those "things".
Thoroughly American style,
But it is also a new concept from the US "backpacking"
One side of the result appears wonderfully,
The climbing language, which was mostly occupied by European languages, is becoming predominantly English.
The word "outdoor" and the concept have also spread.
The way of dealing with nature and the environment has also changed.
Philosophy that enters from "thing".
As with the "Hall Earth Catalog"

We will introduce one book that you would like to read together with "Samazawa Bunko backpacking guide" written by Kazuhiro Serizawa.
There are "mountain climbing", "camping" and "walking trip" in Japan,There was no "outdoor" XNUM X's.
When a backpacking movement comes into Japan,The illusionary book which became a bible with "Introduction to backpacking" by Kazuhiro Serizawa is back publication!
In Japan at that time, American outdoor goods such as Kelty's pack frames and Jansport's dome tents were hit explosively, but it seems that the concept and philosophy of backpacking did not always follow.
Rather, such a cultural aspect seems to have spread to Japan only after 10 years 20 years later.
It is a great book that gives you a taste of the era of the time between Colin Fletcher's lines of context, which provides a detailed introduction to how-to's and gear in backpacking.
