CAUTION: May cause you to buy a tarp and throw away that tent!

THE book on tarps - I don't think I have found another book that focuses solely on using a sheet of fabric while out camping. I have put together some Top Tarp Tips previously to help use our range of Rig tarps, you can scour the web for tarpology articles, forum posts and drawings, but this book draws everything together. 

Ray Jardine has worked all over the world as a backwoods guide; mainly known for his trips in North America and Canada. Starting off with a sheet of plastic and moving to creating his own lightweight tarp, the book shows all of his learning and puts it together. The story behind the tarp he uses, setting up, when and where to use a tarp over a tent and other little bits of information to make your life easier. 

A thick book I wouldn't read from front to back in one sitting, but having only had it just over a week, I haven't put it down! In my spare time I keep flipping back through for inspiration - one for any adventurers library!
