Backpacking Library

I just printed off this list found on of quintessential backpacking books. In my mind backpacking books can be two things; either a lightweight fire-starter that has the added benefit of a quick entertaining story, or the often heavy (both physically and mentally) exploration of philosophies that heighten the experience of traveling out into the wild world with all your necessities carefully strapped in a neat package on your back. In case you are wondering, this list focuses on the latter.

My personal additions would be Ishmael (D. Quinn). Into the Wild (J. Krakauer), and Cat's Cradle (K. Vonnegut, Jr.)
