Short Synopsis
Kathleen Meyer presents a colorful how-to guide for surviving in the wilderness.

Full Synopsis
World changes come fast and furious, and in the backcountry it is no different. The practice of "packing-it-out"—adopted to protect high-use areas and fragile ecosystems—is here to stay. We are now often urged or even required to haul our poop home. To assist with all this responsible human waste disposal, Kathleen Meyer discusses the latest in product innovations, from classy high-tech to inexpensive do-it-yourself. She covers the most current solutions to the health risks of drinking straight from wilderness waterways, presents a raft of natural substitutes for the purist swearing off toilet tissue, and offers a wealth of new recommendations for ladies who must make do without a loo.

In rowing hundreds of urbanites down whitewater rivers, Meyer honed her squatting skills. Her delightfully shameless discussion of a once-shameful activity, her erudite examination of its associated vocabulary, and her unapologetic promotion of its colorful vernacular make How to Shit in the Woods essential—and vastly entertaining—listening for anyone who has ever paused at the edge of the forest and pondered: "Where do I go to go?"

"Kathleen Meyer has contributed to environmental awareness while lending a grand old English word the respectability it hasn't had since Chaucer's day." ---Frank Graham, Audubon magazine

"This is a great book! I wholeheartedly agree with Ms. Meyer's environmental concerns." ---Linda Svendsen, Director of Boojum Expeditions
